Jake has posted a very interesting article on Managing Domino File Resources Using WebDAV. As you may know, WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning, a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allow users to edit and manage resources on web servers. Always being interested in interoperability with Lotus Domino, I immediately experimented with that, and it works as Jake wrote it, although I couldn’t get the lousy Microsoft DAV implementation to work: I used the very good cadaver command-line client to access Domino’s DAV implementation. To date I only knew of DominoDAV, an Open Source project which requires a J2EE servlet container; reason enough not to play with it. I’ve since read up a bit on Domino’s native implementation and am disappointed that it only supports $file resources in the database design. I’d have liked to attach files to documents…
