Subclipse is a very popular Eclipse plugin which provides SVN repository supports within Eclipse. It serves the purpose but there is no real way to change the SVN user for a repository if credentials are saved. I will try to address this problem in this post.


First of all, why you would need to change the svn user credentials? Person A is working on your machine and he checks out a project from a SVN repository using his credentials. He saves his SVN credentials in your Eclipse environment. Once the project is checked out, you start working on it. When you need to check in the project on to same repository, you won’t be asked to enter the SVN credentials, since they are already saved. What if, you need to check in the project, using your SVN credentials? There is not real way to do so.

You will find password files at:
disk:\Documents and Settings\your_username\Application Data\Subversion\auth\svn.simple\

Remove the files and refresh the repository. Subclipse will prompt you to enter username and password for your repository.

Hope this helps.
