Subject Re: How to avoid subversion scm password in pom.xml?
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2009 14:30:13 GMT
First, I would check that the scm url in the pom indicates a URL 
that the credentials are authorized to access, especially if you 
are using path-based authorization. I have found that because 
the URL to add the project and pom's scm URL don't have to 
match, sometimes the initial checkout works, but when the scm
URL is used it fails.
If all that checks out, did you check the 'Use SCM Credentials 
Cache, if available' checkbox when you added the project? 
There are at least three events where the credentials must be
* Initial checkout
* Subsequent updates
* Releases
Unless you have disabled subversion's credential caching for
the user running continuum, you shouldn't have problems with
the subsequent updates/releases. If you have disabled 
credential caching, make sure that there are cached creds 
that are authorized before you disable them, and make sure 
you check the 'Use SCM Credentials Cache, if available' 
checkbox for the project.

thanks for your quick reply, but the problem is not  the initial checkout of
the pom.xml. After i checked out the pom like you described,
the build fails with the following error:

Provider message: The svn command failed.
Command output:
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/subversion/xxxx/xxxxx'
svn: PROPFIND of '/subversion/xxxx/xxxx': authorization failed
