If you could move to WSAD 6.0 (now RAD 6.0) you would have better results.
All of the Subclipse work has been put into Eclipse 3 for quite a while
now. Integration is very good now. If you are just doing Java work, and
cannot upgrade WSAD, then you could install Eclipse 3 and use both tools.

This version has the "important" operations. Checkout, Update, Commit,
Revert, Log etc... I thought the refactoring stuff worked too. If it
doesn't, it doesn't though. No real work is going to be done in Eclipse
2.x environment.

Current version is 0.9.25. Yes, it supports refactoring. I think it
mostly works, but there are definitely things you can do that Subversion
itself does not support either. Such as copying something twice without a
commit in between.

Both would be pretty hard. I do not think you could do #1. I suppose you
could do #2, but ick. You would be better off using Eclipse 3. You can
always refactor and commit in Eclipse 3, then do an Update in WSAD if you
have a need to also work in WSAD.
