we would like to keep track of who made what changes to what content. Actually I believe that TWS314 keeps track in the version history and I would like to visualize this information on the client.
For this I read the DAV:creator-displayname property on the VR. The property exists but is always empty although I enabled authentication by entering account information in tomcat-users.xml
and adjusting web.xml.
I understand that the security functionality is not yet available and I believe this may be the cause.
Tell me that this is the right approach and will work with the ACL-enabled version and I am happy
If not, is it possible and how to do it?
I’m sorry if you feel bothered prematurely. But once ACL becomes available my schedule will soon thighten up (as yours currently does I guess
Therefore I would like to know if I am on track with my approach.
Thanks for your help
you are right! The next version of TWS will support security and the property DAV:creator-displayname of VRs will automatically contain the authenticated user.
Of course, as TWS is based on the Apache/Jakarta products Tomcat and Slide, you could activate one of the available realm implementations (UserDatabaseRealm or SlideRealm) to obtain authentication - but it may become a bit tricky. Please refer to either the Tomcat documentation at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/realm-howto.html or the Slide mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org (archive at http://email@example.com/). The TWS-specific realm implementation will be available with the next release and will be easy to configure.
