SP2010 - Create Document Sets

Aug 11, 2010 at 4:40 PM


Just trying to confirm with you that I am ready it correctly...
If the webservice doesn't exist, SPServices can't 'abstract it?



Was wondering if you had heard anything about document sets?

You've got it, Greg. I'm not in the business of writing the Web Services, just "wrapping" them for easier use with jQuery.

Just because someone doesn't *think* that there is one, BTW, doesn't mean that there isn't. I haven't dug through all of the new SP2010 Web Services much.

Hi Marc,

So I found (after some time have to say) the following:
on msdn http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee559339.aspx [Doc Set feature overview]
as well as http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.office.documentmanagement.documentsets.documentset.aspx [Doc Set Class]
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee574540.aspx [Doc Set Create Method]

I am still clueless on how to interpret/ make sense of what I am reading in that last one. There is definitely a SPDocumentSet 'object'
and a method to create it but does it mean it is available thru Web Services?


PS: Wy would they had a new content type (a folder with metadata) if you can't OOTB download its content as ZIP? Beyond me...

Here's the list of SharePoint 2010 Foundation Web Services:

And on your last question -- isn't that the sort of thing Microsoft always does? They tend to leave the door open for third parties to do this stuff if the market demands it.
