If you are using http:// or svn:// connection, then as long as you enter
the correct values in the Repository location in Subclipse it ought to
work. Otherwise, what I would suggest is that you download the Subversion
1.1.4 command line binaries. Use it to make an authenticated connection
to your repository and let it cache the credentials. Then Subclipse ought
to work by entering a location with no credentials at all since they are

However, if you use a Subversion 1.2+ client, or TortoiseSVN, it will
break it. The newer version of Subversion encrypts the credentials. So
when you use those client it will change the cache to be encrypted and the
1.1.4 version of JavaHL included in Subclipse will not be able to
read them.

If the credentials are entered in Subclipse, then it should work. The
version of Subclipse you are using will not prompt you for credentials.

I would recommend just using TortoiseSVN until you can update to an
Eclipse 3.x IDE.
