Subject Re: FW: JCR, RMI & WebDAV - draft HOWTO *Correction*
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2005 14:56:24 GMT
hi peter

thanks for your work.
just let me add 2 corrections to your statements regarding
webdav, which is not totally precise.

i thought, this would have become clear, while writing
it down again (answering one of your mails and a mail
sent by gary):


so one more time.
there are 2 ways to browse the repository using WebDAV

WebDAV 1: Repository Browsing ('filebased', 'Simple')

- WebDAV compliance level 1,2
- by default nt:file is displayed as 'resource' any other node
   is displayed as 'collection' thus a human readable way to
   view the repository.
- its refered to as 'Simple' server, too. this is rather historical ;)
- the 'Normal' WebDAV view you are looking for.

this is your 8)

> http://localhost:8080/jackrabbit-server/repository/default/

Please note, that the workspace name is required to access
the root resource.

WebDAV 2: Remoting (not completed since client is missing)

Main focus is the map JSR170 api to WebDAV, but attempt to
be compliant to

- WebDAV compliance level 1,2
- DeltaV (RFC 3253)
- Ordering (RFC 3648)
- Search

this is your 9)

> http://localhost:8080/jackrabbit-server/server/

*IMPORTANT* the url sent by Peter is not correct.
you don't need the 'workspaceName' to be part of the root.
Instead the root is a 'fake' resource that has no corresponding
item in the repository. underneath all workspaces are displayed

Please make sure, you are not adding confusion to thinks i
keep explaining.... if its not clear, feel free to ask.

As promised in the mail sent in response to one of your
questions, i will enhance the readme as soon as possible.
