Hi Adil, Thanks for mentioning the null pointer exception, this is clearly something that should be fixed (if you are interested, you can follow the issue that I’ve just created ).
rename test1.xml test-moved/test1.xml With this command, you can move documents inside a single database. There is currently no fixed solution to move resources across database, so you’ll probably have to use two requests for this (GET and PUT). Hope this helps Christian  https://github.com/BaseXdb/basex/issues/1358 > </command> > > The command returns a 200, but nothing has moved. I am clearly doing something > wrong.
