fortunately for me in my scenario, directory path will be created only if there is file associated with that, since we are quarrying for SVN file changes. saying that now I see a bug with this, if someone created a directory only and record that change I will get that as a file, thanks for pointing that. any thoughts how to avoid the same

There is no programmatical way based on the output. The only solution
would be to do that reporting on the file-system, and generate the report from
there. ...

Rather than limiting the program to working just within the list of files and directories obtained from the JIRA ticket, I'd go the extra mile to be sure I had it right. I'd compare the list against the SVN repository. That would enable you to differentiate between files and directories. For example, comparing a line ( or a portion of a line ) from the ticket, against the output from something like:

svn list --depth files ...
which excludes directories. Naturally, the ... would be replaced with the proper args and repository designation, to suit the specifics of the situation.
