Since Bioclipse2 is more Eclipse-like, it is quite easy to make use of external Eclipse plugins. Here I demonstrate this by adding the Subclipse plugin for Subversion and making use of it from the Bioclipse2 workbench.
Figure: A local project shared on a Subversion repository. The editor shows compare of the local and remote version of the same document with changes highlighted.
Having version control inside the Bioclispe workbench opens up many new possibilities for collaborative work. It allows e.g. for shared editing of chemical and biological files, to resolve conflicts, and rollback any undesired changes.
The current solution requires some editing in the Subclipse source due to unresolved dependencies, but I will contact the Subclipse team and try to resolve this.
