Adding an eXist database as a Network Place.

A quick note (and reminder) for gaining access to your eXist database using Windows Explorer

Tools > Map Network Drive

Select the link that says: "Sign up for online storage or connect to a network server."

Hit Next >

Select 'Choose another network location' and hit Next >

Then give it a name.

You can now go to "My Network Places", find your mapping, put in the dba (or your user) name and password and you're good to go :)
