Eclipse integration issue with CVS

I imported an Eclipse project into IntelliJ via the new project wizard. Everything seemed to go fine however, the CVS integration isn't working at all. The problem appears to be that the CVS root that Eclipse uses for our CVS repository is based on the extssh protocol. IntelliJ doesn't recognize that protocol so it ignores that CVS root. The equivalent root in IntelliJ for this project would use the ext protocol. For example, the eclipse CVS root looks like this:

:extssh:myid@cvs.mycorp.com:/cvs

the equivalent root that works in intellij is:

:ext:myid@cvs.mycorp.com:/cvs

Is there a way to make this work or should I file a bug?

Hello Marc,

I imported an Eclipse project into IntelliJ via the new project
wizard. Everything seemed to go fine however, the CVS integration
isn't working at all. The problem appears to be that the CVS root
that Eclipse uses for our CVS repository is based on the extssh
protocol. IntelliJ doesn't recognize that protocol so it ignores that
CVS root. The equivalent root in IntelliJ for this project would use
the ext protocol. For example, the eclipse CVS root looks like this:

:extssh:myid@cvs.mycorp.com:/cvs

the equivalent root that works in intellij is:

:ext:myid@cvs.mycorp.com:/cvs

Is there a way to make this work or should I file a bug?


Well, if I understand the situation correctly, the best thing to do would
be filing a bug with Eclipse and complaining about their gratuitous incompatibility
with other CVS implementations.

I've found this page describes how to configure Eclipse so that it would
be compatible with the rest of the world in such configurations:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/radhelp/v6r0m1/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/task-team-cmdlineclient.htm

And a JIRA issue for this problem already exists: http://jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEABKL-4536

Thanks Dmitry! That link you referenced did the trick! You guys should include that information in your documentation for eclipse interoperability.
