The following error appears in Fisheye log:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError - Could not initialize class org.tigris.subversion.javahl.SVNClient 


Fisheye is unable to locate the SVNClient jar files or the jar files being used do not contain the needed class.


It is recommended to use SVNKit bundled in Fisheye (version 1.4 and onwards).

Ensure that JAR and Dynamic Library are not set in Administration >> Server Settings >> Subversion Client by leaving them blank, therefore the default SVNKit bundled with Fisheye will be used.

To use the native client, please follow the documentation to set it up.
