The Studio uses the Eclipse CVS to provide CVS support.
In case you installed the Studio as a plugin to eclipse distribution, CVS is already bundled and ready to be used. In any other case, follow these instructions to install the CVS support.
- Open the Studio's preferences and locate the 'Available Software Sites' page.
- Make sure that the main Eclipse update site is checked 'on'. In this example, the update site is the Eclipse 'Helios' site. Click 'OK' to commit any changes made to this page and exit.
- Click Help -> Install New Software and select the Eclipse update site. It may take a couple of minutes to populate the plugin options.
- Select the CVS plugin and follow the wizard's 'Next' or 'Finish' to complete the installation.
