Could anyone help me to manipulate MS Sharepoint 2007 using Java. Manipulate in the sense, Add/Delete/Download files.. Being a Java Rookie, this is an daunting task for me. The terms WSDL, Java Axis seem totally new to me. I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me out.
A WSDL is the description of a web services API; it's how one can manipulate SharePoint programmatically. The SharePoint admin needs to give you the WSDL either as a file or a URL. All web services toolkits (e.g., Axis-2) have tools you can use to create Java client code from a WSDL; for Axis2, it's http://axis.apache.org/axis2/java/core/tools/CodegenToolReference.html#cmdline. Once you have the code to access SharePoint, you can incorporate it into your client app.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
