This jEdit plugin enables you to load documents from a WebDAV server into a jEdit buffer and to save the content of a buffer to WebDAV. With this plugin you can directly edit documents in the database.

To use this plugin you must configure a WebDAV listener in the adminstration console. Additionally, directories must be present in the database -- either manually or automatically created, see the documentation -- because WebDAV clients can only see directories and documents that are in directories.


  • I'm getting an error: "C:\Users\{username}\.jedit\jars\DEV.jar:  Cannot start:  java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:  org/gjt/sp/jedit/io/VFS$Directory Entry Try updating to a newer version of the plugin." ...?
    • The required class only exists in jEdit versions up to 4.4.2. Newer versions have the io classes redesigned. The DAV plugin works for me with jEdit 4.4.2 (OS X Yosemite, ML 7).
    • This tools has been unmaintained for sometime.  I would recommend, if you want it, that you pull down the source from the repository and try to build it against modern software.
