DigitalSpace (DS) is a virtual file system (VFS) which act as an abstraction layer on top of a many plugins. The purpose of a DS is to allow for client applications to access different types of file systems or even a databases in a uniform way. A DS can for example be used to access local , network storage devices ,FTP servers , HTTP servers and even Databases transparently without the client application noticing the difference. Or it can be used to bridge the differences in Windows, Mac OS and Unix filesystems, so that applications could access files on local file systems of those types without having to know what type of file system they're accessing.
