Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) provides the mechanism that will allow authoring of documents over the Internet. A series of extensions to hypertext transfer protocol (http), it allows not only the retrieval of Web documents, but the in-place editing of them as well. WebDAV exhibits two important aspects: the idea of distributed authoring, allowing remote clients to edit documents; and the control of that authoring through versioning, ensuring tight control of access to the document. Because WebDAV extends http, it achieves two important things: client transparency and geographical transparency.
