Howdy Ranchers,

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.

Thanks in Advance.

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.
