Introduction

In order to install the repostories and sites with DaV support, you should follow thes steps:

#The Common WebDaV application
#The sites
#The central repository
#The 3rd-party repository
#The projects repository

#Verifying the installation

The Common WebDaV application

The Common WebDaV application
The Common WebDaV application

All the DaV webapps for sites and repositories follow the same model of application.

This model of application is implemented as a directory called $(webapp.directory) with the following content:

Code Block
$(webapp.directory)/
$(webapp.directory)/WEB-INF
$(webapp.directory)/WEB-INF/web.xml

The web.xml file has the following content:

Code Block

Verifying the installation

To ensure the installation worked (at least for reading), point your web browser to http://localhost:8080/manager/html/list with a valid user.

Create a file in each of the application directories (with each file a different name).

Then click on each of the applications links, which should be :
