More information

Information about the new PDS methods for Project Server 2003

Project Server 2003 includes new Project Data Service (PDS) Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and the new Service for Enterprise Data Maintenance for higher-level programmatic management of enterprise projects, resources, and custom fields.

Information about the Project Data Service reference for Project Server 2003

This article describes how to use the PDS API to enable client program access to Project Server 2003 portfolio data. Client programs can programmatically log on to Project Server 2003 and can use SOAP to call PDS API methods. The PDS implements a SOAP listener. The SOAP listener receives method calls in XML format and returns an XML response.

Information about how to use the Project Data Service

This article contains sample programs that work with both Project Server 2003 and Microsoft Project Server 2002. The programs provide examples of how to log on to Microsoft Project Server and how to call the Project Data Service (PDS) by using SOAP. The PDS Test and the PDSTest.NET tools are generic programs that can call the PDS native or can call extension methods. The sample code helps a developer to see how to call the PDS by using Microsoft Visual Basic® 6 and the SOAP toolkit, and by using Microsoft Visual C#®, Microsoft .NET, and the .NET Framework.

Information about the PDS and Microsoft Project Server security architecture

This article gives developers the background and the details of the Project Server 2003 security architecture, and explains the role of the Project Data Service (PDS) in accessing project data. The developer of a client solution that accesses data from Microsoft Project Server database views should use this information as the basis for maintaining data security.

Information about PDS Extenders

This article describes how Project Data Service (PDS) Extenders let you easily develop solutions by using Project Server 2003. The PDS Extenders article describes in detail the programming interface, the improvements for Project Server 2003, and how to register PDS Extenders.

For additional information, visit the following MSDN Web site:

Information about PDS methods

This article describes how the PDS exposes an API for accessing portfolio data from Project Server 2003.

For additional information, visit the following MSDN Web site:

Information about how to use SOAP to make a call to PDS methods

This article describes how to obtain, install, and use the SOAP Toolkit 3.0. A client program that is making PDS method calls uses the SOAP, a lightweight, XML-based protocol for exchanging information.

For additional information, visit the following MSDN Web site:

Information about programmatic logon in Project Server 2003

This article describes how to programmatically log on to Project Server 2003. Before a client program can make method calls to the PDS, it must first log on to Project Server 2003.

For additional information, visit the following MSDN Web site:

Information about how to use the PDS with multiple Microsoft Project Server sites

This article describes how to use PDS with multiple Microsoft Project Server sites.
