Revision 13 as of 2007-08-06 05:13:08

Clear message

A plugin for Eclipse that provides integration with Bazaar. It is being developed by Guillermo Gonzalez. The Initial announcement is also available.

The plugin should currently be considered alpha.

See the Launchpad page for a list of branches. The project also has a Homepage (which is moving to the Launchpad page).


New build (0.0.10), is mainly bug fix build and add:
  • very simple pull and push implementation (before use this feature see Known bugs)
  • some improvements in error handling and error dialogs
  • added a Browse button to "Branch as new project" wizard
  • works with Eclipse 3.3 and should work with non-full-SDK versions (like "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers")


In builds >= 0.0.7:
  • bzr-xmloutput
  • bazaar >= 0.16
  • Java SDK/JRE >=1.5 (a.k.a Java >=5.0)


  1. Launch eclipse
  2. Go to Help --> Software updates --> Find and install (see: HelpFindAndInstall).
  3. Select Search for new features to install and then --> Next (see: FeatureUpdate).
  4. Click New remote site.
  5. In the name field, enter Bazaar plugin for Eclipse and in the URL field (see: UpdateSitesToVisit).
  6. Verify that the checkbox for the new update site is checked, and click Finish
  7. A dialog with the results should pop-up. (see: UpdateSiteSearchResults)
  8. Select the latest version inside bzr-eclipse (actual)
  9. Click Finish, and this will launch a wizard (license agreement, etc).
  10. Restart Eclipse.
  11. Go to: Window --> Preferences --> Team --> Bazaar. Enter the path to the bzr executable.


Almost all commands are in early stages, but can be used (at your own risk).

  • Implemented commands:
    • add
    • remove
    • revert
    • diff
    • commit / uncommit
    • log and annotate (need a lot of work)
    • pull/push: Basic support with a popup to enter the url (Don't support authentication aware if a password is required this can hang Eclipse, see: bug 121936)
  • Supported Eclipse features:
    • Create a branch inside eclipse (actually a new project with a new branch in it)
    • Import a branch as a project (this actually create a new branch which have the specified as parent)
    • Label decorators (I'm working to improve it, see: bug 128423)
    • Move/delete support (already commited, not yet released) - rename support is under it way too

Known bugs

  • Commands that require authentication (i.e: pull, push) produce a deadlock hanging Eclipse (be careful with this!) see: bug 121936
  • In a branch command (import a project) there is no URI's validation
