Does sourcetree require Java to be installed?



I am receiving this error when I try to perform a "push", can someone provide some help on how I could fix this please?


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false push -v --tags origin master:master
Pushing to C:\dev\test.git
remote: hooks/pre-receive: line 116: /C/Program Files/Java/jre6/bin/java.exe: No such file or directory       
To C:\dev\test.git
 ! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)
error: failed to push some refs to 'C:\dev\test.git'

No Sourcetree doesn't require Java, looking at the error pre-receive hook declined it looks like you might have a pre-receve hook defined and the code to process that hook requires java.



I forgot the repository in question used to be linked to a subversion server I had originally.

Thanks to your message I investigated the repo and de-activated the subgit pre and post hooks.

The push has now worked successfully.
