Editing web server stored Excel files

I'm looking for a good WEBDAV example that I can apply to a Java servlet that will serve an Excel file (whether from the file system or other stream), allow the user to edit it, and, upon their clicking 'save' in Excel, will automatically upload the file back to the web server for storage.

I've seen this done with Microsoft SharePoint and would like to apply the same logic and flow to custom applications.  Can someone point me in the right direction to either the APIs and/or the documentation that I would need to get up to speed on this topic? Thanks.

We're not trying to generate the Excel sheets or use a form post to upload them - that wont' cut it.  This is why I'm asking for a WEBDAV example.

Jakarta Tomcat comes out of the box with a WEBDAV servlet (and is open source so I can see how it works internally).  I've found the solution to my own question.

Please PAQ and refund.
