create / install new subversion (svn) server as a windows service

Not once i have been asked how to create a new service for the subversion aka svn server in windows.

So, the solution in command line is very simple:
sc create Subversion binpath= "c:\SVN\svn-win32-1.6.2\bin\svnserve.exe --service --root c:\SVN\Repository" displayname= "Subversion" depend= Tcpip

displayname = can be anything

Websphere dump file analyaze

Download this file ha408.jar

Then run it using this command line for example:
"java -Xmx1200m -jar ha408.jar"

* The Xmx can be also 1024 or 512 it depends.

Than after the application is running, you can open the "*.phd" files from websphere to analyze.

Just add this line below to your context listener for example.

System.setProperty("", "c:/certificates/certificates_storage_file");

Using platform encoding (Cp1252 actually) to copy filtered resources

Simple solution, just add utf-8 as a property like this:

Apache maven.
Hoped it helped, 

Element 'filters' cannot have character [children], because the type's content type is element-only. maven

Go this error while adding filter to web.xml.
My mistake was that i forgot creating the <filter> tag inside the <filters>.
I did this:
 <filters>src/main/filters/</filters> instead of doing this:

Minor mistake that can happen in one minute out of focus.

An internal error occurred during: "Refreshing external folders". java.lang.NullPointerException

Exception occurred to me after upgrading and using the eclipse helios with gwt 2.1 new plugin.
Don't know if both connected or not or maybe it's subversion problem.
I have looked and googled for solutions but nothing yet over the web.

What's helped me:
Closing all the projects in eclipse.
Opening all the projects.
This probably synchronize eclipse with the file system. Then Project->Clean all.

That's it, worked for me, hoped that it will help you also.
