Getting Started

The Microsoft® OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing allows users to access documents stored on HTTP servers supporting the FrontPage Web Extender Client (WEC) or Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol extensions from within an OLE aware application. The object linking and embedding database (OLE DB) is a standard set of interfaces that provide heterogeneous access to disparate sources of information located anywhere—file systems, e-mail folders, web servers, and databases. The OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing combines the universal data access of OLE DB with the advantages of managing documents on Web servers. Bundled with the OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing is a Web Folders namespace extension for use with the Windows Explorer shell.

Depending on the application programming interface and development tools used, you should be familiar with:

  • Microsoft OLE DB 2.5
  • Microsoft ADO 2.5

Microsoft Office 2000 includes the OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing and uses its features to simplify publishing Office documents on a local intranet or on external Internet sites. Using the OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing, the Office 2000 File Open and File Save dialog boxes make saving documents to a Web server as easy as saving them to a hard disk or to a file server.
