TortoiseSVN is a Windows shell extension for Subversion.

Enterprise Architect cannot use TortoiseSVN to communicate with the Subversion server; it must use the Subversion command line client.

TortoiseSVN provides icon overlays in Windows Explorer that are useful as a tool for observing the status of your Subversion controlled files. It enables you to create your repository sub-trees and check out local working copies from within Windows Explorer using simple menu commands.


  • Sparx Systems recommend that you test your local working copies, by adding and committing a dummy file from the command prompt window.
  • Manipulating Enterprise Architect's package files, using tools that are external to Enterprise Architect, could leave those files in a state that Enterprise Architect cannot use.
