I've got a customer request where a Document Library exists in a Site Collection on one Web Application and they would like to display the items in another Site Collection in a different Web Application (Both Web Apps are in the same Domain) in SharePoint 2007. Do I create a custom web part, or is there something Out of Box (Data View, jQuery, etc.) ?


  • I've a similar requirement. Can you give some pointers? (URLs may be!)

Permissions and auth will be the bugaboos, but using the Web Services via SPServices and jQuery might do the job.


Page Viewer Web Part + an SPD-edited DocLib view based on a no-chrome masterpage could do the trick if only the permissions to the other app did not matter.


I had to do this a couple of years ago and couldn't find an out of the box solution. I ended up writing a custom web part, but there are some third party solutions
