I'd like to point out that the commandline interface is absolutely the best
option for SvnAnt users, since it will often require zero additional
installation and configuration. JavaSVN's fairly critical licensing issues
aside, its lack of ra_local (e.g. file://) repository access is a fairly
large problem, especially in certain classes of SCM environment. Though
Sleepycat Software does offer Java bindings  to BerkeleyDB, it's not
clear whether these require native libraries (these are separate from their
pure Java BDB implementation).
SvnAnt currently has a large automated test suite with good coverage for
the commandline client.
