Subversion/Bugzilla and Eclipse

I wanted to try and get my newly installed Bugzilla system configured to work with eclipse and subversion. I wanted to be able to reference my Bug IDs on subversion check-in and be able to navigate to them in Eclipse. Mark Phippard did a fantastic job discussing this in his blog here.

Since I was connecting to a bugzilla database which I am allowing anonymous view access to, the bugtraq:url property I used was http://<hostname>/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=%BUGID%. Doing so, meant that when I check in my files and provide a Bug ID, the subversion history will have a record of it, which will be provided as a link to the information page of the bug in eclipse. Pretty neat stuff!
