Subversion configuration

Using Eclipse: see Configure SVN
subversion client on Linux: add to ~./subversion/config: global-ignores = *.classpath *.project *.settings target
Windows: Tortoise SVN, in settings > Subversion, add "*.classpath *.project *.settings target" to Global ignore pattern.

Build the distribution

Before building the distribution, it is required to commit all the modified files. Check if the local files are identical to the SVN repository with the command "svn status -u" and then "mvn clean package".

Properties editor

Software for translating:

With Eclipse, I recommend to use the properties editor The properties files must be encoded in ISO-8859-1. In Window > Preferences > General > Content Types, select the "Properties File" in Text and enter "ISO-8859-1" in Default Encoding.

Be Careful
