SVN Ant task

Opensource softwares and tools can be pretty powerful and useful, but they can be really frustrating too, due to their complete lack of documentation at times. One such tool I was struggling for the morning was getting SVN Ant to work. Everything seemed to be in place but it was still giving the exception

BUILD FAILED
.....
........
taskdef A class needed by class org.tigris.subvers
ion.svnant.SvnTask cannot be found: org/tigris/subversion/svnclientadapter/SVNCl
ientException

........
.....

Looking at the exceptions it looked somethings missing in the classpath but I had set everything that the plugin site asked me to. The worse part was finding the solution on google too didn't throw up many results. Finally found a couple of articles which were very helpful.
