This connection error occurs because the request processing is taking a long time and the SVN server is closing the connection.

HTTP spooling helps to prevent issues with request processing taking a long time and the server closing the connection.


An option was added to SVNKit 1.8.8 to address this:

Adding an option to enable HTTP spooling in SVNKit will fix this issue.

Add the -Dsvnkit.http.spoolDirectory=<path_to_a_temporary_folder> in the MAVEN_OPTS.
