ProblemYou need to rollback/revert subversion to a previous version and you're using the Subclipse plugin for Eclipse (or Flash Builder 4, etc.) to do it.
- There have been many changes to your project. You want to "undo" all those changes, restoring your project to its former glory.
- Choosing "Revert" only blew away your local changes. That's not good enough.
- There's a particular point in the past where everything "worked" and you need to reset everything back to that revision.
- Right click your top level project folder and choose "Team" > "Show History"
- Find the point in the past where things worked TIP: click the play button on the top left to "show the next 25" revisions
- Highlight all revisions AFTER the target revision
- Right click and choose "Revert changes from revision # to revision #"
- That's it. Commit your changes
For me, the revision that worked was revision 3690. The revision I was on was 3765. So, I highlighted revisions 3691 to 3765, right clicked and chose "Revert changes from revision 3765 to 3691."
From there, I wanted to keep certain changes so I right clicked my project folder and chose "Compare With..." > "Latest From Repository". This opened a view of every single file in the project that was altered. I double-clicked the files with useful changes, copied the changes I wanted over and saved the compare editor.
After everything looked correct, I committed. Worked great.
