SVN Protocol

From: Ramprasad Venkata Inala <rinala_at_cordys.com>

I want to write a proxy for SVN ( for SVN protocol )so that it passes
through our versioning system. For the same I need to know the SVN
protocol, which I understood from the protocol document placed in the
SVN sources. There is some hiccup while handshaking with the client. Let
me explain in detail what I do.
When a client ( using a subclipse ) tries to connect to the SVN proxy(
a socket server program written in java ) the proxy accepts the
connection and spawns a new thread that will handle further the requests
for this client, so each client will have a thread that would handle the
streams. When server socket accepts the client request it sends back
response in the format specified below.
( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) ) ( 2 ANONYMOUS ( ) (
) )
Spaces also do matter in the above response.
The client responds back with the below response
( 2 ( edit-pipeline ) 28:svn:///d:/svnrep/SVNProtocol )
where svnrep is SVN repository and SVNProtocol is the eclipse project.
Then the proxy sends a message in this format again to the client
( ( ( 31:d:/svnrep/SVNProtocol ) ) ( ANONYMOUS ( ) ) )
Then the problem starts here again when the client responds back then it
tries to open up another socket rather sending requests on the same
stream which is a diversion from the connection establishment.
Could somebody help me in this regard and explain me the protocol
