i search for a standard way (not the proprietary MS methods) to use a ACID-transaction on a set of files over WebDAV.



start TA

 get file a

 get file b

 put file a 

 put file b

end TA.


My idea was (like in Subversion documentation or in the WebDAV book from Lisa Dusseault), to use the DeltaV resource type activity with server-side workspace, to group changes together to a single transaction. 


Is this the right way to use transaction over WebDAV?


Is there any standard implementation for that? 


Is there a spec/papers for transactions over WebDAV?


Thank you for your Help.


Best regards
