Subject Re: Contents of jcr-server ?

hi cedric

there used to be a index.jsp, that roughly summarizes
the contents of the jcr-server.


and there were various threads regarding the aim and
the status of the jcr-server in the dev list.


peter darton once wrote a HOWTO. apparently it never made it into the

and corrigenda:

its a chimaera....


points to the issue, that should improve this situation. particularly
separating the webdav-only part from the 'jcr-remoting-over-webdav'.
that fact, that the jcr-server contains 2 implementations with
completely different aims, apparently causes quite some confusion.

regarding 'full webdav server':

- we made some efforts to make the 'simple' server compliant to
   RFC2518. i don't know, if its a 'full' webdav server, since
   at Day we used to built thin webdav-views on top of our repository
   and not focusing too much on the Webdav itself ;)

- maybe the following post may give you some hints about
   the basics, that lead to the webdav-library present in
   jackrabbit (and your question regarding 'slide'):

see above. the index.jsp and the mentioned HOWTO should
provide answers for this.

see above
