18.9 Using Dreamweaver as a WebDAV Client

Dreamweaver supports the WebDAV LOCK and UNLOCK methods, so you can use it to check items in and out of Oracle Portal while you are working on them.

Unlike Microsoft Office, you must explicitly lock portal files in Dreamweaver when you want to prevent other users from making changes while you work on the files.

If you want to make use of the check-in and -out functionality, you must specify an e-mail address when setting up the Dreamweaver site for your portal.

You can also use Dreamweaver's Synchronize feature to keep the files you store on your local file system synchronized with the content in the portal.
