SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am currently developing an app that uses the WebDav HTTP protocol to communicate and handle interactions with a Sharepoint site. While I can use a MKCOL request to create directories within a SharePoint site, I'd like to be able to create Document Libraries as well.

What sort of meta-data do I need to add to a folder I've created for it to be recognized as Document Library, or is it even possible using WebDav to accomplish something like this? When comparing one of my own folders against a Document Library using a PROPFIND call I see no obvious differences in terms of the tags that are used.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm super stumped.
