Sardine is useful for interacting with a webdav server and is much easier to programmatically manage remote files than with FTP.

I looked at the other Java webdav clients out there slide, Jackrabbit and webdavclient4j. None of them do things quite the way I wanted.

The UsageGuide documents how to use Sardine. If you are hungry, this is an appetizer for retrieving a directory listing from a remote webdav server:

Sardine sardine = SardineFactory.begin();
List<DavResource> resources = sardine.list("");
for (DavResource res : resources)

Sardine is focused on being a useful library for common use cases. I also need it to support the latest version of HttpClient. It abstracts away the connection details and provides easy to use methods to accomplish webdav'y actions.

There is a SardineTask so that you can use Sardine directly in your Ant scripts.

Sardine uses JAXB to process XML responses from the webdav server. The generated code for this is based on the excellent webdav.xsd contained in the Apache Wink project.

Sardine is fully stable and is being used in production on a very high traffic site (140+ concurrent connections 24/7). Click the Issues tab to submit requests. Most development is just adding new use cases. Check back often for new releases.

If you like this library, I'd appreciate if you would blog/tweet about it. If you don't like it, well...
