Version Control with Subversion - Client Interoperability - Cadaver, DAV Explorer
Cadaver, DAV Explorer
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,
both neon and cadaver are written by the same author. Cadaver
is free software (GPL license) and is available at
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, copy, move, lock or

DAV Explorer is another standalone WebDAV client, written
in Java. It's under a free Apache-like license and is
DAV Explorer does everything cadaver does, but has the
advantages of being portable and being 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
MKACTIVITY requests. But it's not
relevant anyway; we're assuming all of these clients are
operating against an autoversioning repository.
