The Document Workspace Web service is used by 2007 Microsoft Office system applications that support the Document Management pane.
The methods exposed by this Web service provide functionality in the following categories:
Managing Document Workspace sites
Managing data for the Document Workspace site
Managing folders in the Document Workspace site
Managing documents in the Document Workspace site
Managing site users for the Document Workspace site
You must authenticate the user to the server (see Example), before calling the methods of the Document Workspace Web service.
The methods of the Document Workspace Web service operate on any type of SharePoint site, including sites that are not configured as Document Workspace sites. For example, you can use the GetDwsMetaData method to return information about any SharePoint site.
The following code example shows how to initialize a new instance of the Document Workspace Web service and authenticate the user to the server by using the credentials of the current user.
