Using a WebDAV Server

Oxygen XML Web Author includes a WebDAV plugin that enables you to access files stored on a WebDAV-enabled server. To access these files, it is assumed that the WebDAV plugin is enabled in your installation of Oxygen XML Web Author.

Open or Create a File Stored on a WebDAV Server

To open a file stored on a WebDAV-enabled server, use the dedicated WebDAV icon () in the Open section of the main dashboard (a Choose File dialog box will be displayed that allows you to browse for the file). To create a new file, use the dedicated WebDAV icon () in the New section (a Choose Template dialog box will be displayed). For more information, see Creating or Opening Documents. If your connection has not yet been configured, a dialog box will be displayed that allows you to select the URL of your WebDAV server.

Use Built-In WebDAV Server

If the WebDAV Server plugin is installed and enabled, the Choose File dialog box also includes an option to use a built-in WebDAV server that is included with Oxygen XML Web Author. To use this feature, simply click the Use built-in server button and a file structure will be created on your local computer in the following directory: [WEB_AUTHOR_INSTALL_DIR]/tomcat/webapps/oxygen-xml-web-author/webdav-server.
