You can use any WebDAV-enabled client software to access and use resources on a WebDAV-enabled server, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Adobe GoLive and Macromedia DreamWeaver.
You would first need to connect to Sun Java System Web Server server using a valid WebDAV URI. For example, if /info is the URI to a WebDAV-enabled collection on a server named acme running on port 2222, specify the URL for the client to make a connection with the server:
On the client-side, you receive a listing of the contents of the collection.
You can perform several operations on the listed resources. For example, creating a collection on the server, download files from the collection to your machine, upload files, lock, unlock, copy, move or delete resources. Typically, if you were making changes to a file, use the WebDAV client software to lock it to prevent others from simultaneously working on the same file and overwriting your changes.
To view the outstanding locks or to free a locked resource, you use the Lock Management link on the Virtual Server Manager interface, as shown in the Figure 4-7: Lock Management Link :
