it means, that you have a JCR client that communicates
with the persistent layer (server) using the webdav

the JCR API maps pretty well (and surprisingly natural)
to WebDAV. there were only a couple of areas that were
are not covered by any of the WebDAV RFCs. This includes:

- observation
   -> extension
- clone
   -> unresolved
- series of transient modifications (everything between
   2 Session.save() calls).
   -> custom Lock type/scope.

the mapping is described in

that's it. jcr2spi represents the JCR API and it requires
an SPI implementation. spi2dav is one example.

which approach? you lost me here... sorry.

if you have jcr2spi configured to use the spi2dav
SPI implementation, you must make sure you have the
corresponding webdav server running. spi2dav is still part
of the client side.

steps to go there:
- deploy the JCRWebdavServerServlet (by default its
   part of the jackrabbit webapp).
- make sure your jcr2spi is started with spi2dav
- configuration properties of spi2dav are (see
