Hi Stefan!

Thanks for your response.
You are right. Code would make things much clearer ;-). Sorry for that.

OK. So here is the constructor of my simple client.


SimpleSVNClient::SimpleSVNClient(const string& configDir)
        aprPoolInitFlag = true;
    m_pool = svn_pool_create(0);
    if(0 == m_pool)
        ...error handling...
    const char* configDir_temp = 0;
    m_configDir = configDir;
    if(configDir.length() > 0)
        configDir_temp = configDir.c_str();
    svn_config_ensure(configDir_temp, m_pool);
    apr_array_header_t* providers = apr_array_make(m_pool, 8,
sizeof(svn_auth_provider_object_t *));
    svn_auth_provider_object_t *provider;

    svn_client_get_simple_provider(&provider, m_pool);
    *(svn_auth_provider_object_t **)apr_array_push(providers) = provider;

    svn_client_get_username_provider(&provider, m_pool);
    *(svn_auth_provider_object_t **)apr_array_push(providers) = provider;
    // add ssl providers
    // file first then prompt providers
    svn_client_get_ssl_server_trust_file_provider(&provider, m_pool);
    *(svn_auth_provider_object_t **)apr_array_push(providers) = provider;

    svn_client_get_ssl_client_cert_file_provider(&provider, m_pool);
    *(svn_auth_provider_object_t **)apr_array_push(providers) = provider;

    svn_client_get_ssl_client_cert_pw_file_provider(&provider, m_pool);
    *(svn_auth_provider_object_t **)apr_array_push(providers) = provider;

    svn_auth_baton_t* ab;
    svn_auth_open(&ab, providers, m_pool);
    if(0 == ab)
        ...error handling...
    // initialize m_ctx structure
    svn_client_create_context(&m_ctx, m_pool);
    // get the config based on the configDir passed in
    svn_config_get_config(&m_ctx->config, configDir_temp, m_pool);
    // tell the auth functions where the config is
    svn_auth_set_parameter(ab, SVN_AUTH_PARAM_CONFIG_DIR, configDir_temp);
    m_ctx->auth_baton = ab;


And here is the checkout method of the class (SVNRevision is a wrapper for
the svn_revision):


long int SimpleSVNClient::checkout(const string& url, const string&
destPath, const BMSVNRevision& revision,
                                    const bool recursive, const bool
ignoreExt, const SVNRevision& pegRevision)
    int ret;
    apr_pool_t* pool = svn_pool_create(0);
    if(0 == pool)
        ...error handling...
    const char* int_path = svn_path_internal_style(destPath.c_str(),

    svn_revnum_t revnum = 0;
    svn_error_t* err = svn_client_checkout2(&revnum, url.c_str(),
destPath.c_str(), pegRevision.getSVNRevision(),
recursive, ignoreExt, m_ctx, pool);
    ret = revnum;
        ...error handling...
    return ret;


The whole thing crashes when svn_client_checkout2 is called.
In between I set the login of course:


void SimpleSVNClient::setLogin(const string& username, const string&
    m_username = username;
    m_password = password;
    svn_auth_baton_t* ab = m_ctx->auth_baton;
    svn_auth_set_parameter(ab, SVN_AUTH_PARAM_DEFAULT_USERNAME,
    svn_auth_set_parameter(ab, SVN_AUTH_PARAM_DEFAULT_PASSWORD,


Bye, Kai
