what version of dump file can I use to import to SVN? When I try to import into RTC 4.0 I get an error

"Unsupported dump file version: 3". Do I need lower version?

Also I was trying to import using the SVN repository view using RAD. But when I slect the project/trunk and click "import into jazz..", the window is not coming up.

Hi Raj.

Dump file version 3 is the delta dump format:
"Version 3 format is a delta dump; text changes are represented as diffs against the original file, and properties as incremental changes to a persistent set (that is, a property section does not necessarily implicitly clear the property set on a path before the new property settings are evaluated). This change is a space optimization. It requires additional computing time to integrate the diff history. Version 3 is generated by SVN versions 1.1.0-present, if requested by the user."
The RTC SVN Importer does not support delta dumps. You need to create a new dump file from your SVN repository that is a regular dump, not a delta dump. I.e., don't use the "--deltas" flag.
