The IDEA IDE builds its integration using a library named JavaSVN that is
not part of the Subversion project. JavaSVN has done a great job
supporting the Subversion protocols, but it does not support file:// as
that would mean it would also have to write to the repository.

Why are you starting Tomcat? It has nothing to do with Subversion.

You are getting closer here, but the program is called svnserve.

Port 8080 looks like you are expecting Tomcat to be the server. If you
want to use the Apache https server (not Tomcat) then the protocol to
specify in the URL should be http:// not svn://

The svn:// protocol works with the svnserve server process and defaults to
port 3690.

It looks like a lot. Have you looked at the Subversion book? It has a
pretty good explanation of getting a server running.
