Setting “svn:needs-lock” property recursively on a folder in repository

I am trying to set “svn:needs-lock” property recursively on a folder inside
a repository. One of my project teams needs to be notified to lock the file
before editing it from a particular folder. They want to do this on the
server itself rather than the working copy in eclipse.

I could set this property recursively on all the revisions using following

svn propset svn:needs-lock --revprop –r ‘HEAD’ yes –R

(above command is for example, I actually created a small script to
recursively set this property on all the revisions)

I made sure this property set by using “svn propget” command and also
looking at the revision property file in “db” directory. It looks good

When I checkout the folder in eclipse it is checked out in Read/Write mode,
where I expect it to be in Read Only mode. I could not find the reason for
this. I am not able to figure out what wrong I am doing. Can someone please
explain how to set this property on repository & make sure it is inherited
by each new revision automatically?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
