I have a web app and I would like to attach some files in SharePoint and manage it as resources in my external web application. Ie. SharePoint files mashed up in my web app.
I can generate URLs and would like to use this to filter the files for a certain context. My question is specifically about:
- Can I pass some key / user in the URL to make logins transparent?
- Can Sharepoint be embedded in an IFrame like this in a mashup style. (Do not want navigation, menus etc... it should be "transparent")
- Can I prompt the user to login (user+password form) and then redirect to the url?
I do not know SharePoint so any help would be appreciated.
Here is some additional info with two specific example use cases:
One of the applications can be Oracle CRM On Demand (OCOD) using Client Side Extensions.
As for the other one, I would like to make REST API calls and thus using traditional SOAP web services is not exactly what I'm looking for.
Any ideas or thoughts would be welcome.
