How to change SVN user in eclipse

When we connect to a SVN repository, we should provide username and password. Most of the time, We have used to set these credentials saved in a particular computer to prevent prompting for these credentials for subsequent synchronization with repository every time. Then for every workspace, eclipse will get these as SVN credential with out asking from us.

How can we reset these credentials to a another user account?

Go to this location in your computer file system.

C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Application Data\Subversion\auth\svn.simple

Delete the file inside "svn.simple" folder, restart the eclipse and try to synchronize with repository again. You will be prompted for user name and password which was missing for long time in your computer.

I will update for linux soon.
