The old WebDAV plugin was under the Platform/Team's
"Target Management" component, which has nothing to do
with DSDP. It was discontinued quite some time ago.
I understand that the WebDAV code in that plugin never quite
followed the standards, therefore a Google Summer of Code project
in 2007 didn't use that plugin but relied on an Apache Library
for WebDAV support; that library, too, was discontinued in favor
of another Apache project (Jackrabbit), but the Summer of Code
student didn't adopt it.
Long story short, there is some demand for moving WebDAV
into the TM project (see the bug), but currently nobody
who's willing to do the work.
In the meantime, the "old" WebDAV plugin should still work,
and you can get to the Sources from CVS quite easily in case
you want to fix bugs in it yourself. For details, see
We can use the eclipse.dsdp.tm newsgroup or one of the bugs
for follow-up discussions.
