WebDAV is a general-purpose interface for accessing documents on a remote server. As a standard for collaborative web authoring, WebDAV is based on HTTP. Common procedures such as the creation, retrieval and deletion, as well as the organization of documents are supported. Users can edit web resources with the same ease as they can edit resources in a local directory. The WebDAV standard clearly makes its mark in application areas such as Instant Web publishing, Workgroups, Content Management, and Strategic File Management.
The Tamino WebDAV functionality allows communicating with Tamino via the WebDAV protocol. The following WebDAV functionality is supported:
RFC 2518 (HTTP Extensions for
Distributed Authoring -- WEBDAV)
RFC 3253 (Versioning Extensions to WebDAV)
RFC 3744 (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) Access Control Protocol)
The Tamino WebDAV functionality treats all operations as atomic. This means, in regards of transactionality, that the Tamino WebDAV functionality provides no such thing as a session, or the capability of isolation, commit or rollback.
