Subject webdav server(s)
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 02:12:08 GMT
I think I understand now the disjoint thoughts on how the jcr-server
should be designed.  The existing jcr-server is a webdav view of a
JCR repository, whereas it seems Brian is looking for a general
webdav server that happens to use JCR as its storage interface.
The reason for the confusion is because JCR and WebDAV do not share
the same hierarchical models -- either one can emulate the other,
but they are not the same.

What I suggest is that we start a separate contrib project for a
general webdav server implemented using JCR and see how much of
the code can be shared between the two, gradually merging them
together until we reach a point where the two are (hopefully)
distinguishable only by configuration files.  What do you think
of that as a plan?
