Hi Roland

Thanks for your response.

My interest is in WebDAV enabling the filechooser in docx4all.

VFS has support for WebDAV.   See 

There is a file chooser:  http://vfsjfilechooser.sourceforge.net/
and also an SWT implementation:  http://commons-vfs-ui.sourceforge.net/

VFS's WebdavFileObject imports org.apache.webdav, which is the Slide 
client library.

So I'm still interested in the Slide client library, and I would like it 
to remain alive, even though it probably won't need to change much (if 
at all) until migration to HttpClient 4.0.

I am not a Jakarta committer.  Any idea how we might find a sympathetic 
one?  Alternatively, what about the vfs sandbox?

kind regards
