Re: [Subclipse-dev] svnClientAdapter: Authentication cancelled when creating remote folder on file:/// repository

Hi Alexander and Mark,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Alexander, I am not sure if I can access SVNClient.setPrompt() in SVNKit
directly as I am operating through svnClientAdapter?

I have downloaded the trunk, built it, replaced the old svnkit.jar, but...
    org.tigris.subversion.svnclientadapter.SVNClientException: SVNKit client
adapter is not available
svnClientAdapter is complaining here:
    Class c = Class.forName("org.tmatesoft.svn.core.javahl.SVNClientImpl");
Difference between the file SVNClientImpl.class between the new and old jar
is:
46548 Thu Feb 01 12:24:38 GMT 2007
org/tmatesoft/svn/core/javahl/SVNClientImpl.class
50707 Tue Mar 27 08:31:50 GMT 2007
org/tmatesoft/svn/core/javahl/SVNClientImpl.class

I have no idea why it is not loading...

Shawn
