MDK has problems with Subversion ?

In our project we extend the SAP application "Mobile Asset Management MAM" which is based on Mobile Engine. We want to use the popular "Subversion" version control system to manage our source files. Therefore our project directory which includes all the MAM source files and our own files is under control of subversion client (meaning that there are several additional directories ".svn" inserted into the project tree ). When I open this project directory in Eclipse and start the MDK function "Export the project into a .war archive" it results in the error message Too many open files occured generating launch configuration XML.

Is the MDK not able to work with a project directory which is under control of Subversion ?

As a Subversion client I tried Subclipse and TortoiseSVN 1.1.1 . Both lead to this problem

Furthermore we use these versions:

MDK 2.1 4th Edition

Eclipse 2.1.3

MAM 2.0 SR 5

ME 2.1 SP 03

J2SDK 1.4.2

Windows XP SP1

    for some reason, Eclipse cannot generate a launch configuration (so that you can start an application with Run... or Debug...). The launch configurations are saved in the workspace folder of Eclipse - maybe there is no write access to this folder or a rights violation. Check if you can create a launch configuration manually - if not have a look in the .log file of Eclipse. It contains more information on the exception.

    Although it has nothing to do with the exception you reported, I want to mention that the setting of the "default output folder" of eclipse (project properties -> Java build path) can be a problem. The plug-in usually expects the output folder to be <project>/app-root/WEB-INF/classes.
