I implemented a tool for getting documents (Word files, PDFs, etc..) from a Document library in SharePoint 2007-2010 using SiteData.asmx and other standard web services basically.
Now I´m facing the need of doing the same tool for SharePoint 2003. From here I see there is a SiteData.asmx, and in general the same services from 2007-2010 in 2003. However, I don´t have a SP 2003 server where I can test if my tool will work the same way (or if any change is needed).
This question arises, since I know that the framework from 2003 is different from 2007-2010, so I´m not quite sure if the information retrieved by the services will be the same, or if there is a limitation on the 2003 ones that was fixed in 2007-2010.
*I grouped 2007-2010 as the standard web services for those versions of SharePoint behave exactly the same.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
I know of the existence of the web services protocol specification, but personally I don´t trust that the implementations will be the same on all versions of SharePoint.
