1.3 Overview

The Folder Sharing Web Service Protocol specifies data types and operations that enable client applications to manage cross-organization sharing of folder items. This sharing enables a client in one organization to access information from another organization, such as calendar free/busy information. This protocol is applicable to person-to-person sharing scenarios; it does not address organizations sharing information on behalf of the entire organization. The protocol defines operations that are used to create an opaque data structure that authorizes sharing, getting shared folder information, and initiating synchronization of shared folders.
