How does one access the WebDAV client.

Avatar

Level 6

In developing with eclipse.pdf it instructs to 

 

2. Map the repository to your file system using a WebDAV client.
3. Copy all of the .jar files from the following directories to your cq5libs directory:
• /libs/sling/install
• /libs/cq/commons/install

 

I have tried to follow

http://dev.day.com/docs/en/crx/current/how_to/webdav_access.html, but the example of setting up a network place if I enter my local host as 

http://localhost:4502/crx/repository/crx.default, Windows fails to complete.

 

How can I access WebDAV?

Hi, I have followed the technical specification.

 

I am running AEM 5.6 on windows 8.0

 

The main issue is that Icannot add the network location. If I point at localhost:4502/*** it always gives me the error message 

 

---------------------------
Add Network Location

The folder you entered does not appear to be valid.  Please choose another.

Did you checked my link and followed steps for windows 8 to update Windows Registry as described at http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/deploying/technical_requirements.html#WebDAV%20Clients

I followed the following steps

 

WebDAV Clients

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8

Note: On Windows Vista, Service Pack 2 of Windows Vista is required to connect AEM using WebDAV.

To successfully connect with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and 8 to an AEM instance that is not secured with SSL, basic authentication over unsecured network must be enabled in Windows. This requires a change in the Windows Registry of the WebClient:

  1. Locate the registry subkey:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters
  2. Add the BasicAuthLevel registry entry to this subkey using a value of 2 or more.

I found that, there is an issue when you try to connect through Webdav in Windows. So, I use Webdav client. Pls install Webdav client "Anyclient" and then try to connect.

Also, if you are trying to connect programetically then add standalone jar in your classpath from here
