Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-165) add ability to ignore specific node types when generating webdav directory listing
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2005 18:42:06 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-165?page=comments#action_12320453 ] 

Brian Moseley commented on JCR-165:
-----------------------------------

section 8.4 of RFC 2518 says:

"The semantics of GET are unchanged when applied to a collection, since GET is defined as,
"retrieve whatever information (in the form of an entity) is identified by the Request-URI"
[RFC2068]. GET when applied to a collection may return the contents of an "index.html" resource,
a human-readable view of the contents of the collection, or something else altogether. Hence
it is possible that the result of a GET on a collection will bear no correlation to the membership
of the collection."

so it's not that GETing a collection doesn't belong to webdav, but rather that the content
of the response is undefined. you have to make *some* kind of response, even if you don't
want to send a traditional html directory listing.

however you ultimately choose to handle the issue, though, i don't have any problem handing
it at the servlet level rather than in the export chain.
