Thanks Andy for your quick response.

We want to access the svn(Basically check out) from URL1 and we want to update it with URL2, this is our basic requirement. Please suggest the possible solutions.

*NEVER* change the contents of the .svn directories. They are not
meant to be manipulated by anything but the Subversion libraries.

Credentials are not cached in the working copy, they are cached in the
user's home directory, so if you need to use different credentials,
specify the --username option on the command line.

Why do you think you need to change the URL the WC was checked out
from? Rather than trying to describe *how* you want to accomplish
something, describe *what* you need the end result to be, and let the
list suggest how to get there. I'm very unclear on what you're
attempting to do here.
