SCM Requirements

I am hoping you can provide me with some information about Subversion. I
am looking for a SCM solution that fulfills the following requirements:

I need production and development environments, but due to budgetary
constraints, they need to be on the same server. The application is written
in Java running on Tomcat and Apache accessing a Microsoft SQL Server
database backend.

The application server is running RH Linux.

I want to keep the production and development environments separate, but I
want the development environment to run from production code.
I don't know how I would accomplish this, but one way I thought of was to
have all symbolic links in the dev environment that point to the actual
binaries/code in the production environment. The developer checks out code
from the dev environment to work on it. Since the dev environment is
sym-linked to the production environment, the developer gets production
code. The developer can then modify the checked out code, compile it if
need be, and check it back in to the dev environment, where the sym-link is
overwritten with the actual code. The developer can then test it in the
development environment before moving it over to the production
environment. After the code is moved over to production, the sym-link is
recreated in the dev environment.

All modifications would be done in a Windows GUI. We are currently using
Oracle Java Developer to modify/compile the java code.

It would be nice to have check-out and check-in capabilities, change
tracking, history of who did what and when, concurrent editing, code
locking, merge and diff of text files, the ability to check the tested code
back in to production.

Thank you,
