Create a new Repository Sub-tree

If a repository sub-tree has already been created for your Enterprise Architect model, skip this topic and see the Create a Local Working Copy topic. If your Enterprise Architect model has not previously been added to version control, create a sub-tree for it in your SVN repository by following the steps below:

  1. Create a temporary directory structure to import into the SVN repository, which initializes the repository sub-tree for this Enterprise Architect model. The directory structure should look like this:












  1. Open a command prompt, navigate to tempDir and issue the command:


           svn import. <repositoryURL> --message "A Comment of your choice"



After the import is finished, the original tree is not converted into a working copy. To start working, you must still svn checkout a fresh working copy of the tree.


  1. Delete the directory tempDir and all its contents.
