I could not get the SlideTest code to compile as listed in this article. Here are the corrections I made to get it to compile:

  • Instead of import org.apache.util.httpURL;, I used import org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpURL;

  • Instead of hrl.setUserInfo("user", "pass");, I used hrl.setUserinfo("user", "pass");

With these changes the code to get a file compiled and ran properly.

I could not get the code for uploading a file to work. wdr.putMethod(fn) returns a boolean. When getting a file getMethod(fn) returns true, but when trying to upload a file putMethod(fn) always returned false. After lots of hair pulling and searching FAQs and the Slide mailing list I was able to get it to work as follows:

String filename = "myLocalFilename";
File fn = new File(filename);
String path = wdr.getPath() + "/" + filename;
boolean rslt = wdr.putMethod(path,fn);

Hope this is helpful. Now on to more complex stuff...
