EclipseSW has great built-in integration with CVSW (or CVSNT). This tutorial will demonstrate checking a project into a CVS (actually, CVSNTW) repository. To demonstrate this, I created the 'demo-project' project, shown below. This is a JavaSW project. It has a src directory that contains our source files and a bin directory that contains the automatically-built class files. It has a .classpath file and a .project file.
Now, let's check demo-project into CVS. To do this, I first right-clicked the project's name and then went to Team → Share Project and selected it.
I selected CVS as the repository type and clicked Next. By default, you probably will not see SVN as a repository type. SVN is a subversionW repository (which you can add support for by downloading a plug-in such as Subversive or Subclipse).
