As Mark has already stated, you need to use PushOk's SVN plugin to
achieve this and you need to check in/out within PowerBuilder.
I have just completed an evaluation of source control tools and SVN
using PushOk SVN plugin combination was the only one I found that worked
well with PowerBuilder 11.5.
There are other plugins available but PushOKs was by far the best.
Mark also mentioned that version 12 gets rid the horror that is the PBL.
Unfortunately that is only in the Visual Studio version and I'm not sure
I want to go down that path in its first release. The classic version
still uses PBLs.

Subject: RE: SVN Subversion- object level checkout
Thanks for your mail.
We are using Tortoise SVN-1.6.7 alongwith Power Builder 11.5.
We want to lock (check-out) the core power builder object from SVN so
that only one user can modify the object for that time. For this case,
If we want to open the workspace from the repository (SVN) we are
getting the attached message.
Please let us know the correct process for the Power Builder connectivty
with the proper Tortoise SVN SCC version to lock the core PB object.
Appreciate your quick help.

you need to play by PowerBuilder's rules, I'm afraid. Trying to use
TortoiseSVN or any other "plain" Subversion client for checkin/checkout
will cause you grief.
You can still use TortoiseSVN for other tasks, like browsing logs,
tagging and branching.
The IDE supports the SCC API, and you need to use a plug-in for the IDE
that can drive Subversion via SCC. This will magically do the right
thing with objects in PBLs. Note that SCC encourages a serialized
workflow with reservation ("locking") of objects.
We evaluated PushOK's product a couple of years ago; at the time, it
proved a good fit for our customer's needs.
(Please upgrade to Subversion 1.6.15. Subversion 1.6.9 sports a number
of bugs that have been fixed since its release.)
