What is WebDav | How to implement it in Android

After a very long time, yes I'm back. ;-)

Here we're going to discuss what is a  'WebDav' server and how you can implement a 'WebDav' server in your system too. Before starting let's first have a look at what actually is WebDav. BTW, I'm not going to explain how wiki explains; but with my level of  knowledge ;-)


WebDav actually stands for ' Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning.'  Well,what that means?

It uses the HTTP protocol itself. In simple words, its actually a replacement for a common http file server.

WebDAV server allows you to access the directories(files)  from a web browser. We can also edit documents within that server. That's something cool. But the problem is that , we should need Internet Explorer 4.0 Or higher version. 


Honestly,i don't like 'IE' for many reasons. Anyway if you want some kind of editing and sorta stuff, you need it.

So let's set it up in our Android device. 

First download this WebDAV server app by 'olive tree'. Or download the pro version from here.

( Zip password: CYBERHUNK). But you should think buying the pro version and that would support the developer.


Well, things are now going to be straight forward from here. There's no need for a set up actually. We just need to specify a port as per your choice. Then set Network Interface to 'loopback'.

Enable authentication if you need a password to login to your server. You can either enable or disable anonymous logins as well. 



After that done. Just power on the server and connect to your server via a browser or through a WebDAV client.

http://localhost:port 

When talking about WebDAV client, cadaver seems very good as a WebDAV client. Anyway I'm deciding to make a tutorial on cadaver very soon.
