Groove 2007: update to the Groove Web Helpers


Are you familiar with the Groove Web Helpers?  They’re designed to help you get the most from the Groove Web Services API.  Though not officially “supported” they are available on CodePlex.  the latest update to the Web Helpers is now available:


http://www.codeplex.com/GWSV12Helpers


This release:



  • Fixes the problem with the SharepointFilesTool class’s SetInitialConfiguration method. This method was calling the SetWSSProperties web service operation using the wrong posting URL.

  • Adds the GrooveSPFiles command line utility, which invokes the SharePoint Files Tool SetWSSProperties web service operation using the above class method and passes command line arguments to it, making it possible to demonstrate that the fix works.

Using this release, you can now set the initial configuration of a SharePoint Files Tool, from a client or a GDB, programmatically or from the command line.
