Hi every one,


I’m working in Alfresco Community 201612, 2017 and 4.2f and also Alfresco One. I’m testing webdav protocol in these versions in Linux and Windows 7.


Our tests verify that Webdav doesn’t lock the documents when a user is working on it, so considering the following case that at least two persons working at the same time in the same document, can cause a serious problem:


User1 is working on a document throught Webdab and editing it. At the same time, user2 changes the same file and saves it. Now consider user1 saves his changes. What would be happen? Since user1 was working on his version, he even didn’t understand that anybody updated a document! And he saves his own version and we lost all the modifications done by user2.


Have you recognized this problem and have you found any technical solution for that?


I appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.
