Jackrabbit JCR Server

This is the JCR Server component of the Apache Jackrabbit project. This component contains two WebDAV based JCR server implementations:

  • Simple Webdav Server
  • JCR Webdav Server

Simple Webdav Server

WebDAV (conformance levels 1, 2, and 3) and DeltaV compliant WebDAV server implementation to access a JSR170 repository.

Futher information such as configuration as well as the SimpleWebdavServlet.java itself can be found in the Jackrabbit Web Application project.

  • Packages:
    org.apache.jackrabbit.server Common server functionality
    org.apache.jackrabbit.server.io Import and export facilities
    org.apache.jackrabbit.webdav.simple Server side WebDAV implementation (DavResource, ResourceConfig,...).
  • Servlet:
    org.apache.jackrabbit.j2ee.SimpleWebdavServlet.java see Jackrabbit Web Application

Note thatn when run on top of a JCR 2.0 implementation that also supports shareable nodes, the WebDAV BIND specification
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-webdav-bind) is also supported.

JCR Webdav Server

Server used to remote JSR170 calls via WebDAV.

The client counterpart of this server is represented by the JCR to SPI project in combination with the SPI to WebDAV SPI implementation that can be found in the Jackrabbit SPI to DAV project. Easy to use setup of both components can be found in Jackrabbit JCR to DAV and Jackrabbit JCR Client, respectively.

  • Packages:
    org.apache.jackrabbit.server Common server functionality
    org.apache.jackrabbit.server.jcr JCR-Server
    org.apache.jackrabbit.webdav.jcr Server side WebDAV implementation (DavResources, Reports, Properties)
  • Servlet:
    org.apache.jackrabbit.j2ee.JCRServerServlet.java see Jackrabbit Web Application
