Stephan Wissel has contributed a new project on OpenNTF - WebDAV for IBM Domino. The project contains an extension to Domino to support access to attachments in NSFs via the WebDAV protocol. This allows for example using Microsoft Word users to open attachments, edit them and save them back without detaching them first. Read more details in the documentation and the specification.

Here is Stephan's description:

"Round-trip Editing Library for Domino is built by the Lotus development team as an unsupported feature to compliment Lotus Domino server. This feature enables developers to add the capability for users to launch an attachment from Domino using their native application, such as Microsoft Word, edit it in place, and save it.

It is intended to enhance the way attachments work in Domino. Instead of having to detach, edit locally, and re-attach, this executable allows user to work with documents seamlessly from within their Domino applications.

The library is currently implemented as a set of libraries on the Domino server as well as an executable that has to be installed at each individual's desktop/laptop."
