Setting up Oracle Data Modeler to access subversion¶
These instructions are for the Mac. Linux is probably similar. I have no idea how to get it using Kerberized SSH on Windows.
Unfortunately by default Data Modeler uses some Java SSH implementation that doesn't support Kerberos. You have to add a different svn tunnel method to persuade it to use the system ssh executable. To do this, you need to edit the svn config file used by data developer; on my Mac it was at
[tunnels] section, add a line duplicating the existing ssh entry, only with a different name, like
kssh = $SVN_SSH ssh -q -o ControlMaster=no
Now, in Data Modeler, you can add the subversion URL as
svn+kssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/cvs/projects/sam-oracle-db and it should work.
If you want to access the repository using normal svn commands you will also have to add kssh to the
~/.subversion/config file so they understand the URL.
