Partial update possible?

If you have Subversion 1.5, you can alter your WC such that the directories
holding those java packages remain empty; this would be a working solution
if you don't have other packages in the directory that you do need.
This requires a bit of a workaround to do, but I think I saw the workaround
in this list:
   For each directory you would like to leave empty
     svn update -r0 <directory name>
     rm -rf <directory name>
     svn update --set-depth empty <directory name>

  will set the directory to be left empty through future updates. That's a
zero after the -r in the first command.

There is not a solution I know of that will work if the packages you want to
not update are in a directory with others you do want, unless you want to
just write a script that does an update and then erases the packages you
don't want, and use that when you want to update.

Subject: Partial update possible?
I have a situation where I regularly want to update my WC of a project, but
there are some Java packages that I dont want to have in my WC, so after I
run svn update I need to physically remove the directories to get the
product to compile. Is there any possibility in Svn to configure that some
of the directories should be ignored when updating?
