Description

Goliath is an application to allow remote creation and editing of documents on websites. It uses a technology called WebDAV (also found in Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 for Windows) to contact web servers and make changes to the files on web servers that
understand WebDAV.

With Goliath, users can:

* View the contents of a web site in a Finder-like fashion (including size, modification date
and type)
* Upload new files to a website
* Create new folders in web sites
* Delete files and folders on a web site
* Rename files on a web server
* Download copies of files on a web server using Drag & Drop (including delete by dragging to
the Trash)
* Bookmark DAV resources for easy navigation

Planned features for future versions of Goliath include

* Copy, and Move files and folders on a web site
* Lock and make changes to existing files on a web server (using the applications of their
choice)
* A users guide
* DASL
