It looks like we’re really close to shipping Groove Web Services. Things have turned out quite well. Between the beta and v1 we were able to move closer toward the feature that Jon Udell mentioned. It was tricky and it makes programming to GWS a bit harder, but the benifits are huge. Basically all we did was to move the user information out of the service URL and into a header. (Yes, more SOAP headers. Yummy!) What this does enables is the ability to share URLs obtained from GWS with other users. As long as the other user has authority to access the same resource in Groove they will be able to resolve the URL.
