Hi Blair,

Thanks a ton on that information. Another query that I would like to ask is:

My prj is as, in home_dir/user_name i have
WC= working copy.

I am using the following command to tag the WC_ear:

svn copy --message 'some message' WC_ear <svn_repo_link_to_tags>/tag_number
For the ear of my webapp, the WC_ear goes in properly at that tag. so i have

But, when i use similar command for tagging the WC_web,of my project, the *
contents* of the WC_web go in at the tag rather than the *WC_web itself*. So
i have this after the above two copy operation:
where the dashes above indicate the contents of WC_web

even i used this
svn mkdir - - message 'some message' <svn_link_to_tags>/tag_number/WC_web
and then the
 svn copy --message 'some msg' WC_web

but still the contents of WC_web are pushed in rather than the WC_web

I would like to see such folder structure at the tag location, after the
copy operation:


The locaton where i do a checkout is
and all the svn commands are fired @ the /home_dir/user_name.

Hope you understood :) Can you help me in this Blair?
