Java SVNKit on OpenVMS

Hello,

I'm using a java svn client (SVNKit) in a OpenVMS 7.3.2 (ODS-2) machine and I'm with the following problem. When I add a file in uppercase I get the following svn status:

>svn add TESTE5.TXT
A TESTE5.TXT ==> That's Ok. The file is added.
>svn status
? teste5.txt
! TESTE5.TXT ==> He tries to find to the file in lowercase and uppercase, and gets confused.

When I add the files with lowercase name (like >svn add teste5.txt) it works.

Anyone knows how to deal with this?
I saw that there is some logical names that might be for this in the jsvnsetup.openvms file, like decc$efs_case_preserve, but I tried to change it and it didn't worked.

Is there a way to configure a java program to be non case-sensitive?

As the HELP says, ...

CRTL

Feature_Logical_Names

DECC$EFS_CASE_PRESERVE

With DECC$EFS_CASE_PRESERVE enabled, case is preserved for file
names on ODS-5 disks.
[...]

It's hard to preserve anything (other than
all-upper-case) on an ODS2 disk.

I know nothing, but I doubt it. If the
program is doing case-sensitive string
operations, then there may not be much you
can do about it from the outside.

I'd guess that you need an ODS5 disk for many
Java things. If you can't add (or convert
to) a real ODS5 disk, there's always
LDDRIVER.

Re: Java SVNKit on OpenVMS

Quoting from the Java5 installation documentation:

"JDK 5.0 must be installed on an ODS-5 formatted disk."

That'll likely get most stuff mostly-working here.

If you try running Java on ODS-2, you'll likely have all manner of added "fun". Even if you get the parsing sorted.
