Forum OpenACS Q&A: webDAV
I'm wondering why someone would choose to purchase WebDrive when Windows already has a WebDAV client built in. Is WebDrive more standards compliant? I've heard the AOLserver WebDav implementors complain a great deal about the multiple incarnations of WebDav support in Windows...
If the TIP gets approved, I will be adding the code to OpenACS next week.
You can see the file-storage support of WebDAV running at:
I'm working with an analytical chemistry laboratory and I want to send instrument data directly to the system. It would be easiest if I could map a drive letter. Do you think there are better options than webDrive. Thanks.
If push, then WebDAV sounds cool, but I don't see why that would be any better than just having the Windows machines dump files into the filesystem of the server via Samba or whatever, and then have OpenACS parse them and read them in.
Or do you have control over the client end Windows box software too, aka you're writing it yourself or the like? Ah, or perhaps the OpenACS server is not on the LAN but is far away on the Internet somewhere?
