OpenDS Subversion Access Information
OpenDS Logo


The source code for OpenDS is hosted on java.net repository and is managed using subversion, which is similar to CVS but offers a few enhancements like atomic commits and per-commit revision numbers (rather than separate revision numbers per file).

The source code can be browsed at https://opends.dev.java.net/source/browse/opends/trunk/opends/
Usually, it is only useful to look at the current branches that stay under https://opends.dev.java.net/svn/opends/trunk/opends

The source can also be checked out to a local space by using any svn client, specifying the URL https://opends.dev.java.net/svn/opends/trunk/opends and using your java.net account credentials.
If you don't have a java.net account you can either create an account at: https://www.dev.java.net/servlets/Join or use the username "guest" with an empty password.
Note that using the guest account only grants a read-only access, so creating a java.net account is necessary if you plan on committing changes.

On Unix and Linux a typical way of checking out the source is to use the svn command line :
    svn checkout --username guest https://opends.dev.java.net/svn/opends/trunk/opends

On Windows a typical way is of checking out the source tree is to use the TortoiseSVN client, in such case, specify https://opends.dev.java.net/svn/opends/trunk/opends as the URL of the repository.

If the HTTP traffic needs to go through an http proxy, you need to configure the HHTP proxy in the servers file of the subversion directory.
For example : in the [global] section of the servers file set :
