To set the HTTP(S)/WebDAV preferences, open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Network Connection Settings > HTTP(S)/WebDAV. The following options are available:
Internal Apache HttpClient Version
Oxygen XML Editor uses the Apache HttpClient to establish connections to HTTP servers. For Oxygen XML Editor to benefit from particular sets of features provided by different versions, you may choose between v3 and v4.
Maximum number of simultaneous connections per host
Defines the maximum number of simultaneous connections established by the application with a distinct host. Servers might consider multiple connections opened from the same source to be a Denial of Service attack. You can avoid that by lowering the value of this option.
Note: The minimum value that can be set in this option is 5.
Read Timeout (seconds)
The period (in seconds) after which the application considers that an HTTP server is unreachable if it does not receive any response from that server.
Enable HTTP 'Expect: 100-continue ' handshake (for HTTP/1.1 protocol)
Activates Expect: 100-Continue handshake. The purpose of the Expect: 100-Continue handshake is to allow a client that is sending a request message with a request body to determine if the origin server is willing to accept the request (based on the request headers) before the client sends the request body. The use of the Expect: 100-continue handshake can result in noticeable performance improvement when working with databases. The Expect: 100-continue handshake should be used with caution, as it may cause problems with HTTP servers and proxies that do not support the HTTP/1.1 protocol.
Use the 'Content-Type' header field to determine the content type
When selected, Oxygen XML Editor tries to determine a resource type using the Content-Type header field. This header indicates the Internet media type of the message content, consisting of a type and subtype. For example:
Content-Type: text/xml
When unchecked, the resource type is determined by analyzing its extension. For example, a file ending in .xml is considered to be an XML file.
Automatic retry on recoverable error
When selected, if an HTTP error occurs when Oxygen XML Editor communicates with a server via HTTP (for example, sending or receiving a SOAP request to or from a Web services server) and the error is recoverable, Oxygen XML Editor tries to re-send the request to the server.
Automatically accept a security certificate, even if invalid
When selected, the HTTPS connections that Oxygen XML Editor attempts to establish with will accept all security certificates, even if they are invalid.
Important: By accepting an invalid certificate, you accept (at your own risk) a potential security threat, since you cannot verify the integrity of the certificate's issuer.
Lock WebDAV files on open
If selected, the files opened through WebDAV are locked on the server so that they cannot be edited by other users while the lock placed by the current user still exists on the server.
