Switching user credentials on a Subversion working copy

Hi all,

I've got a question concerning the switching of user credentials (username and / or password) on a Subversion working copy. Our users are given the possibility to choose different credentials via a dedicated client UI. The question is if, there's a way to trigger Subversion's authentication callback mechanism from an API level and tell Subversion to use the new credentials instead of the old ones? I've tried out lot of stuff, but apparently didn't find the right way of doing this from code level. The application does not write the credentials to the local disk (/auth/...). So every authentication only works through the callback mechanism.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Sincerely,

Goetz
