Jira Subversion plugin not working after removing SSLv3 from SVN server

We are running an old version of Jira (v4.4.3#663-r165197) and the subversion plugin installed is 0.10.7, that is the latest we can use with this version of Jira.
We have recently changed our SVN server in order to disable SSLv3 and after this change the Jira server cannot even start and it hangs during the initialization of the subversion plugin.

How can I connect to the SVN server using TLS and not SSLv3, without upgrading our Jira server?

Jira version: v4.4.3#663-r165197
Subversion plugin: 0.10.7

Hi Davide, 

Try checking your JVM version to see if it supports the version of SSL you're running JIRA on. My guess is that it does not support the versions your SVN server is using. Check out the following article for reference.
