Implementation of the WebDAV protocol for Zope3

Project description


The z3c.dav package is an implementation of the WebDAV protocol for Zope3. z3c.dav supports the content type, within the scope of the core RFC2518 protocol. z3c.dav also contains a number of components that help developers support WebDAV in their application. These components include the ability to handle WebDAV specific errors, to generate multi-status responses, and an implementation of all core WebDAV methods exist that use zope component to lookup specific adapters that perform the required action. For example locking parses the request and then looks up a IDAVLockmanager adapter to perform the locking and unlocking of objects. But if the required adapter does not exist then a 405 Method Not Allowed response is returned to the client.

Add-on packages exist to support other standard Zope3 content types and services. These include:

  • z3c.davapp.zopeappfile

    Defines a common WebDAV data model for, and content objects.

  • z3c.davapp.zopefile

    Defines a common WebDAV data model for zope.file.file.File content objects.

  • z3c.davapp.zopelocking

    Implements wrappers around the zope.locking utility to integrate with z3c.dav.

Each of these packages uses an other Zope3 package to provide the underlying functionality.

Changes in z3c.dav


  • stricter property validation
  • some servers pass the Content-Length header value as a string
