The Ategra WebFileHandler is the easy and developer-friendly solution to all your online file attachment editing needs. Focusing on reliability and ease-of-use, the WebFileHandler handles all server-to-client communications and provides you with a dead-simple API.
User connects as usual to your application and may edit the document locally instantly.
User edits/modifies the files locally with their preferred application.

It was never so easy to give the user all capabilities to edit files localy but store them on a central server
ATEGRA WebFileHandler works with all common web servers. Required is that the web server may send and receive http post/get request.
According to your need you configure the security settings - use https or even client certificates, it's up to you.
The Ategra WebFileHandler has been developed by Stefan and Heinz at Ategra. With the creation of the WebFileHandler, they hoped to address a common and often overlooked problem in many of their customers workflow.
To ensure the WFH a bright future, the project got backed by Ategra.
Over the http(s) network connection the file will be transferred from your server to the client and opened there with the corresponding locally installed application.
Because the file will be transmitted from your application directly to your client nobody else has access to the files. You can even encrypt the transmission by using https protocol.
