This question may sound a little awkward, but it's because I'm not exactly sure how to ask it. If anyone can re-phrase it better please let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

Basically I am trying to make SP trade information with another browser-based piece of software. For example, there is information on both servers pertaining to "Building A" and its sub-sections "Floor 1" and "Floor 2". What I want to do is have the other software call up the SP site and pass the identifiers for "Building A - Floor 2" in the header, and have SP interpret that and serve up the library/folder with the documents for that floor in that building.

Is there a way to do this without having to manually copy the exact URLs of each folder and make a hard-coded link to them in the other software? In a perfect world, SP would also be able to "talk back" to the other server in the same way, by sticking variables in the header of the page being called.

Instead of adding variables in a header, have you thought about creating a custom wcf service? –  Alex Choroshin Apr 21 '13 at 20:56
