EasyEclipse is a great tool for developing Joomla!. It also supports SVN client to grab your code easily from Joomlacode

Here is video tutorial how to use EasyEclipse

For those with commit access

All files should have the Unix style (LF) line endings. Subversion should give an error if you try to commit a file with mixed line endings.

Please make the following change to your SVN config file (~/.subversion/config for Mac/Linux users). This will ensure that any new file with these extensions will automatically have the right line ending style set.

enable-auto-props = yes
*.ini = svn:eol-style=LF
*.php = svn:eol-style=LF
*.css = svn:eol-style=LF
*.js = svn:eol-style=LF

All of this should exist in the file by default, so you might just need to uncomment the auto-props line and add the extra lines at the bottom of the auto-props entries.

For TortoiseSVN, in the Settings dialog, General tab, Subversion section, there's an edit button for the config file. The auto-props stuff is near the bottom. You have to uncomment enable-auto-props and add the options to the auto-props section. Note that their parser doesn't seem to like leading spaces.
