Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 supports the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol. WebDAV enables collaborative web publishing and has the following features:
Compliance with RFC 2518 and interoperability with RFC 2518 clients
Security and access control for web publishing
Basic publishing operations on file-system-based WebDAV collections and resources
WebDAV provides integrated support for content metadata, namespace management, and overwrite protection. These technologies combined with the many authoring tools that support WebDAV provide an ideal development platform for collaborative environments.
