There seems to be a few users of WebDAV, I'd like to get an indication of how many people would have any use for this if I added it to http-handler.

Please put some comments on what you would use it for as this might be useful for working out implementation issues.

If you have another favourite HTTP extension then write about that too

Chris

I'm using two services that offer some sort of "your (semi-) personal harddisk on the web" service, i.e. some storage space on the net that can be accessed through a traditional web interface aswell as WebDAV (but not through FTP). Very useful for sharing a few files with people working on the same project or hosting some personal stuff that I may need to have available when using computers at work, university, a friend's place etc.

Said web interfaces won't work with Amiga browsers, but even if they would: Using my favourite interface for file management jobs (DOpus) to move a few files around, rename them, delete them etc. is much more comfortable anyway. I stopped using dedicated FTP clients for pretty much the same reason (and switched to FTPMount).

I'm currentl;y using HTML-Kit (on my wintel machine ) to update my website.
One of the advantage of HTML-Kit is that I don't need to have the files on my machine, I directly open the file on the web server, modify it, save it, done...

Can this WebDav offer similar functionality ?

I regularily use WEBDav in web applications, I am also writing a WebDAV server for a web content management system that Im also writing, this will be used for storing files etc.

They say, if you don't know what it is, you don't need it!

Well, could you in short explain what WebDav is and what one could possibly do
with it?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
LAME question, i know

Thanks

Oh yeah,

@cgutjahr

You may not be able to use DOpus, but Shell commands will work. The problem I have is to implement a filesystem, Examine() needs to return correct results for each level of the path. If a program only locks the file you are interested in, then it is ok to treat everything as a file. Generally, each component of the path is locked and examined in turn, and I have no way of knowing whether it expects a directory or a file.

@Jerryuk007

HTML-Kit works through FTP:. You need to download FTPMount WebDAV will only work with a WebDAV server.

@Raziel

Well, as they say, if you don't know what it is....

WebDAV is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that enable you to rename, share, upload etc files using HTTP. (you now know as much as me)

@Poll

Overwhelming support in favour of WebDAV. I guess it is going in

Chris

Its also used quite a lot in content management systems (corporate), under windows you dont really notice it, because the "My Network Places" handles it invisibly. Hence my eagerness over getting this handler to cope with WebDAV as well.
