II have a project where I have to create a web service to allow a 3rd part read access to wss 3.0 SharePoint list items. I have access to the server where Sharepoiint 3.0 is installed. My tools are Visual Web Developer Express 2010. I am looking for an over view of what I need to do. I do know that SharePoint has web service methods and I know I have to use the list one.
What I am looking for is direction in where to get started.
1) What do I need to build on my server to set up the webservice.
2) What kind of credentials do I set up? Do I need to create a username and password?
3) I assume I need to reference the l ist with GUID and perhaps a view.
4) How do I consume the website. I would like to build a simple ASP site that dumps list data to prove out the concept.
Any help getting started would be appreciated.
