Is it possible to use statsvn tool even there is no working copy on local system? The reason is there is not enough space on
a pc to have working copy of all the code.
Here is the build.xml I used: Please look at path attribute. I put a url instead of a local path to working copy and get "directory does not exist" exception.
No this is not possible. Checkout your most important subfolder and run StatSVN on that.
Can I run this tool on subversion server?
Only if the server has it checked out locally :)
What does it mean when you say "Only if the server has it checked out locally".
I am thinking login to subversion server (not sure what platform it runs on - unix?). Since all source code resides on server, I can put a physical path into build.xml path attribute. what do you mean check out?
You would have to check out the code as a client, on the server. Therefore, the server would be running, and you would do daily checkouts into another folder on that same computer.
so basically, I need to have a working copy of the source code on the same server, right?
