Reply to: XMAX development: Access XML and XAC files through httpNovember 5, 2009 at 10:10 pm
Yes, in order to read and write to an HTTP or HTTPS address the web server must support WebDAV, it must be enabled and appropriate WebDAV folders must be designated.
We test the following HTTP servers that support WebDAV:
– Apache Tomcat
– IBM Websphere
– Microsoft IIS*
* Note that IIS 7 and 7.5 cannot be used with XMAX in this manner (opening files should probably be OK, but saving back to the server is not) as our product requires the server to support anonymous access for write operations, and this feature has been disabled (or removed) with this release of IIS. Older versions of IIS are unaffected and can still be used (this change to WebDAV support is part of IIS and not a patch or Windows update as far as I know) as can other products that support WebDAV (like those listed above). I don't know if Microsoft plans to address this issue, but there is a lot of chatter on various news groups and other forums specific to IIS by users of that server having trouble with many other applications that are now broken as a result of this change.
