I would love to take you up on your offer of help. I am having a nightmare with this. THe sheer amount of expletives I have shouted in the office has increased ten-fold since discovering the total lack of accurate information in installing slide.
I have managed to get the server running (I think). There appears to be references to slide when I start Tomcat. As for the client... **** knows. I try to run the run.bat and nothing happens. I imagine it will be something to do with the classpath as everything to do with Java invariably boils down to.
If you can help I will be forever in your debt.

I am facing a solution design problem and hence seeking your adivse here.
1. There is a security layer in a running EJB system that decides the access privileges of various user groups on various resources (files, images etc).
2. A webdav application using jakarta slide is being developed to be deployed under tomcat that will give the access to the resources.
3. Apache is acting as web server with which tomcat is connected as a web container (for servlets/jsp) files.
4. I initially am using apache's htpasswd.exe file to generate username/password for basic authentication. It works fine as far as I have created the user or group in that file and shown the URL to be protected (http://localhost/testDav instead of http://localhost:8080/testDav), popping up the basic authentication dialog box.
Now I need that user will point to http://localhost/testDav URL in his browser, get the basic or any other authentication (basic is sufficient in this case), after submitting the username and password the request will go to the slide's servlet, say TestWebDavServlet. Then this servlet will call the security layer's API of the EJB system to authenticate and authorize the user and thus provide or deny access to the user. That means using the passwords text file is not sufficient in this case.
Please let me know, if the whole idea is feasible or their is a basic misunderstanding of teh problem by me? What are the alternatives to me in this scenario. Once I can get the username and password as string to my servlet I can do the rest. But how can I get that as I am not using tomcat as a web server rather using apache as web server?
Looking for comments from you.

I'm trying to use webdavresuorce but when I try to use the propfindmethod the status respose of the server is 400 "Bad Request".
Some one have any idea of witch could be the problem?


public static void main(String[] args) throws URIException {
String user = new String("pippo");
String password = new String("pluto");
String host = new String("host.xgplab.xgp");
String abs_path = new String("/path/path2/Documents");
int port = 50000;

HttpURL url = new HttpURL(user, password, host, port, abs_path);

try {

WebdavResource container = new WebdavResource(url, WebdavResource.OPTIONS_VERSION_HISTORY, org.apache.webdav.lib.methods.DepthSupport.DEPTH_0);
Vector<Object> vec = new Vector<Object>();

System.out.println(container.propfindMethod(url.getPath(), org.apache.webdav.lib.methods.DepthSupport.DEPTH_0, vec));

} catch (IOException e) {

I agree. Here's the link:
