HTTP/1.1 PUT Tool.


Winie is a network utility to put files on the web using HTTP/1.1. The main feature of Winie is its ability to solve the "lost update problem" by storing ETags (like Web Commander) . Winie use the client side api of Jigsaw, the W3C Web server.

Note: Winie needs at least jdk1.2.2 (there is a bug in Classloader of jdk1.2.1).

PUT, GET and DELETE files on the web
Version conflict detection, see "The lost update problem"
Retries when connection closed (like wget does)
Upload all files located in a directory (recursively or not)
Support for proxies (HTTP, SOCKS)
Support for metadata configuration (language, charset)
