Custom WebDAVFileSystem with Java NIO  RSS feed

Hey Guys,

I have an Java application with lots of NIO methods like Files.copy, Files.move, Files.delete, FileChannel.. My web application actually works fine with the default UnixFileSystem  and an EncryptedFileSystem to encrypt the physical data on your local machine. What I now trying to achieve: I want to access a remote WebDAV server and modify data on that server with the basic functions like upload, delete or update the remote WebDAV data - without changing every method on my application. So here comes my idea:

I think an WebDAV FileSystem implementation would do the trick. Adding a custom WebDAV FileSystemProvider which is managing the mentioned file operations on the remote data. I've googled a lot and the Apache VFS with Sardine implementation looks good - BUT it seems that the Apache VFS is not compatible with NIO?

Here's some example code:

After that I want to work in my application with localPath1 + localPath2. So that e.g. a Files.copy(localPath1, newRemotePath) would copy a file on the WebDAV server to a new directory.

Is this the right course of action? Or are there other libraries to achieve that?

Thanks for your ideas/advice's,
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
