Search SharePoint WSS 3.0 document library via web services.
Posted on 2013-01-04
I have a SharePoint WSS 3.0 environment on my own server. I have a document library with pdfs and MS Word documents. Is it possible to allow the contents of the documents to be searched with a webservice? I need to grant remote access to another server so the documents can be programmatically searched. For example if 2 out of the 30 documents have the string “rain forest”, and the remote server wants to search all the documents for that string, I need to return meta data that identifies the two documents with the “rain forest” string. At this point it does not matter to me if the documents are PDFs, Word Documents or text files.
