Reset username for SVN in eclipse

Sometimes we want to change the username and password for the SVN access in Eclipse or Spring Tools Suite. But it does not asks for it. There is a very easy way of doing this. You can easily find out the solution on google :). I am writing here again to save to my memory. The solution is for Windows platform and tried and tested on Windows 7.  Here is the path where you need to delete one folder to do the same.  1. First close Eclipse/STS if your had open it. Some times without closing first it will not work.  2. Go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Subversion\auth  3. Delete svn.simple folder  4. That's it. Now when you restart your IDE and go to SVN it will again ask you for credentials.  Note : AppData folder is hidden and not viewed by default. To make it visible follow below steps:  1. C:\Users\<username>  2. Go to menu Tools --> Folder Options --> View Tab --> Click Show hidden files, folders and drives under Hidden Files and Folders.  Happy Codin
