We have a WSS 3.0 site that uses forms authentication using a custom SQL Server 2000 database. My goal is to log into the site with a Blackberry phone and display list items in small aspx pages formatted for the Blackberry browser.
I'm in that prototyping phase, learning what I can and cannot do with each approach. Initially I wanted to use the SP web services to authenticate and use the resulting cookie in subsequent web service calls. I have not been able to get the authentication web service working yet. My other idea was to use the native mobile login page to authenticate.ÃÂ Then I should be able to use the SP object model to fetch and display lists on other pages.
I saw postings that the SP web services don't work with forms authentication but also saw posts indicating success.
What's the final answer on that one? I'd just as soon avoid unnecessary paths.
Has anyone actually done something like this?
Thanks for the help!
