Ah-ha! As they say (at least, in my field). Thanks so much! So where do I
get this addon?
This also matches with something I observed -- it did work once when I
took a break after deleting the thing.
I got this technique from book "Programming Collaborative Web Applications
with MS Exchange 20000 Server" by M. Martin. In truth, I have found several
errors other than this. She describes this technique on page... hmmm...
well, in the picture on page 552... and I'm a visually oriented guy. On page
551 she does say use the HTTP form of the url.
Ahh, and when I tried it, I kept opening up the root of the site (for
example, if I tried to open up http://xxx/testapp/myapp, which works for the
web browser, I end up getting http://xxx in my frontpage display). I'm
guessing that I don't have the addon? Where do I get that?
And would using this addon get around this problem? Ah, because via the
addon I go directly through http, which directly accesses the WFS, where the
folder is truely deleted. Instead of IFS, where it isn't (of course). Got
it. Right. Need that add on.
