Thanks for your suggestion Bob.

I never thought this is so simple.

I am using Eclipse with subversion.
I have copied the contents to the new project using the following approach.

   - Checked out Branch_A into Eclipse workspace
   - Selected Team->Branch/Tag. Set the "Copy to URL" as
   (I tried to copy this directly to http://<<servername>>/Project_B/trunk
   which failed saying "already exists")
   - Then merge the content from "Branch_A_copy" to "trunk" of project B.

I would like to have your opinion if there is a more efficient way to do it.

Thanks & Regards,
