Thanks for your email and the confirmation that I was right about
Subclipse's extra assumptions about repository structure.

installing JavaSVN. Works well now and saves the hassle of trying to
find out how to create libjavahl.so !

I rearranged the files of the repository so that there was a trunk
directory at the top level and Subclipse was able to check out the
project and it all worked fine. So it does seem as though a model of
use of Subversion is imposed by Subclipse that is not required by
Personally I think this added restriction imposed by Subclipse is not a
good move and would love to see the ability to check out the repository
itself as a project. I see from the email post you attached in you
reply to my original message that at least one other person thinks this
as well. Perhaps two people constitute a lobby group?
I will find out how to put in a feature request and do this.
