OK. It sounds like JavaSVN is the best way to go.

OK. I thought I would just include as much detail as possible.

OK. I started by upgrading 0.9.30 to 0.9.33 using the Eclipse update
manger. I then restarted eclipse and went into Preferences -> Team ->
SVN and set it to JavaSVN. I restarted eclipse with this command line:

eclipse -vmargs -Djavasvn.ssh2.key=/home/sanchezr/.ssh/id_dsa \

I then went into the SVN Repository Exploring Perspective. I went into
the add repository dialog and specified the repository, including my
username and @ before the hostname. I left the passwork field blank and
received "svn: Authentication cancelled" for an error in the console.
The dialog that popped up said: 'Error validating location:
"org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: Authentication
cancelled"'. It asked me if I wanted to keep the location. I said no
and was returned to the add repository dialog. The server also showed
that the ssh authentication was password and not key authentication,
even though I passed in the location of my key on the command line.

I then entered my password and was able to add the repository. I found
an Eclipse Java project to checkout and selected "Checkout As Project"
on the trunk folder of that project. When I switched to the Java
perspective, the project was build and I was able to run it.

I guess the problem with not being able to access the resources has to
do with using the command line driver. That being the case, I would
like to get JavaSVN working, but I need key authentication for some of
my projects, as that particular sever does not allow password

Thanks for the quick response and hopefully we can get this working. I
am especially interested to know why my specification of the key file
is not honored by Subclipse. I think that may be the source of the
