Cadaver is a bare-bones Unix commandline program for browsing and changing WebDAV shares. Like the Subversion client, it uses the neon HTTP library—not surprisingly, since both neon and cadaver are written by the same author. Cadaver is free software (GPL license) and is available at http://www.webdav.org/cadaver/.
Using cadaver is similar to using a commandline FTP program, and thus it's extremely useful for basic WebDAV debugging. It can be used to upload or download files in a pinch, and also to examine properties, and to copy, move, lock or unlock files:
$ cadaver http://host/repos dav:/repos/> ls Listing collection `/repos/': succeeded. Coll: > foobar 0 May 10 16:19 > playwright.el 2864 May 4 16:18 > proofbypoem.txt 1461 May 5 15:09 > westcoast.jpg 66737 May 5 15:09 dav:/repos/> put README Uploading README to `/repos/README': Progress: [=============================>] 100.0% of 357 bytes succeeded. dav:/repos/> get proofbypoem.txt Downloading `/repos/proofbypoem.txt' to proofbypoem.txt: Progress: [=============================>] 100.0% of 1461 bytes succeeded.
DAV Explorer is another standalone WebDAV client, written in Java. It's under a free Apache-like license and is available at http://www.ics.uci.edu/~webdav/. DAV Explorer does everything cadaver does, but has the advantages of being portable and being a more user-friendly GUI application. It's also one of the first clients to support the new WebDAV Access Control Protocol (RFC 3744).
Of course, DAV Explorer's ACL support is useless in this
case, since mod_dav_svn doesn't support
it. The fact that both Cadaver and DAV Explorer support
some limited DeltaV commands isn't particularly useful
either, since they don't allow
requests. But it's not relevant anyway; we're assuming all
of these clients are operating against an autoversioning
