Subject Re: [vfs] webdav checkin checkout lock unlock

Hi,
Have a look at JSR-147 as this (as far as I remember) deals with versioning. It's the 'official'
approach to implement client side access to versioning systems (especially delta-v based).
It deals with all the stuff of dirty files on client side etc.
Cheers,
Daniel
