Thanks. I do not use the CLI a lot and I was not using the --old and

This command:

svn diff . http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.3.0-rc4

Gives this error:

svn: Target lists to diff may not contain both working copy paths and URLs

JavaHL has a method signature like the following. Do you have any idea
what I would pass for the revision for the WC? Would it take
Revision.WORKING as a value?

     * Display the differences between two paths
     * @param target1 first path or url
     * @param revision1 first revision
     * @param target2 second path or url
     * @param revision2 second revision
     * @param outFileName file name where difference are written
     * @param recurse traverse into subdirectories
     * @exception ClientException
    void diff(String target1, Revision revision1, String target2,
              Revision revision2, String outFileName, boolean recurse)
