Opening and Saving Remote Documents via FTP/SFTP/WebDAV/SharePoint

Oxygen XML Editor supports editing remote files, using the FTP, SFTP, WebDAV , SharePoint, and SharePoint Online for Office 365 protocols. You can edit remote files in the same way you edit local files.For example, you can add remote files a project, or make them subject of XSL and FO transformations.

You can open one or more remote files in the Open URL dialog box.

A WebDAV resource can be locked when it is opened in Oxygen XML Editor by checking the Lock WebDAV files on open option to prevent other users to modify it concurrently on the server. If a user tries to edit a locked file, Oxygen XML Editor displays an error message that contains the lock owner's name. The lock is released automatically when the editor for that resource is closed in Oxygen XML Editor.

To avoid conflicts with other users when you edit a resource stored on a SharePoint server, you can Check Out the resource.

To improve the transfer speed, the content exchanged between Oxygen XML Editor and the HTTP / WebDAV server is compressed using the GZIP algorithm.

The current WebDAV Connection details can be saved using the Database Perspective button and then used in the Data Source Explorer view.
