I installed subversion my Ubuntu 9.10 desktop referring this tutorial https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Subversion

But this tutorial not mention subversion folder structure. I also refer the Internet but couldn't get good idea about folder structure. Please help me.
I use this subversion for maintain my Java program(Netbeans), this subversion also use my friends.

Please explain folder structure ?

After reading Internet trunk, tags and branches are essential is it correct?

Hear how I created those folders

sudo svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/myproject/trunk -m "Created project directory"
sudo svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/myproject/tags -m "Created tags directory"
sudo svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/myproject/branches -m "Created branches directory"

After crating those folders, I can't see those folders inside myproject folder but if I go then I can see those folders.

You don't have to have any folders at all. It's just common to have 'trunk' 'branches' and 'tags' to keep your projects in. You'd add them via:

svn mkdir trunk branches tags

Then commit to your repository:

svn commit -m "Added initial structure"
