1.0 Overview

GroupWise Web Services provides developers with server-side access to user mailboxes. This programmatic access allows you to read and write directly to users’ mailboxes by using industry standards such as XML, SOAP, and HTTP.

GroupWise Web Services communicates directly with a user’s post office agent (POA), and GroupWise schemas define the methods and structures that are used in the conversation with the GroupWise POA.

The GroupWise Web Services schema definition file (WSDL) provides the tools you need to hook into integrated development environment (IDE) frameworks that support Web Services.

For the tools you need to hook into IDE frameworks that support Web Services, GroupWise Web Services also uses the GroupWise Web Services Definition Language (WSDL).

In addition to GroupWise Web Services, GroupWise gives you access to events or actions that occur on a GroupWise user's mailbox. This extension to GroupWise Web Services is called GroupWise Events. GroupWise Events is a Web service that allows you to programmatically configure and retrieve specific GroupWise events that have occurred on a user's mailbox.

GroupWise Events and GroupWise Web Services should be used together. To learn more about GroupWise Events, see GroupWise SDK: Web Services Events.

GroupWise Web Services and GroupWise Web Services Events are available on the following platforms:

  • Linux

  • NetWare (Not available for GroupWise 2012)

  • Windows
