Hey guys, this may be a new SVN user question but...
As I was starting to pull stuff from the phoneME SVN repository, I did the usually incorrect thing of trying to pull just the CDC and got all the assorted branches, tags, etc. So I now realized, I have to only check out the trunks for the components that I need for development. But doing this for every component seemed unappealing.
From the JavaOne porting Technical Session, suggests to get the cdc and the tools components. But this seems to leave out a number of JSRs and other potential components.
This got me was wondering, what kind of dependencies are there for the assorted components?
Other than pulling the pre-packaged source code (which from what I've seen, seem a little dated and not bleeding edge - unless I'm looking in the wrong place), is there any easy way to do a single pull to get all these related components (their trunks not all the branches, etc)?
Would usage of Mercurial (after all OpenJDK is using it) or some other related build tool help in this context? Could a Hudson type build system be useful?
I am trying to do this within Netbeans which is also proving to be a little confusing.
