        The SDK contains conceptual overviews, programming tasks, and references to guide you in developing solutions based on Windows SharePoint Services as a platform. The SDK includes information about the following technologies:

        1. Web Part Framework Create, package, and deploy Web Parts on SharePoint sites.

        2. Server-side object model Work with individual lists and sites or manage an entire Windows SharePoint Services deployment.

        3. Web services Use default Web services, or create custom Web services, to interact with Windows SharePoint Services from external applications.

        4. Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Customize the schemas that define lists and sites, define queries for use with members of the object model or Web services, and specify parameters for use with methods in Remote Procedure Call (RPC) protocol.

        5. RPC protocol and other protocols Post requests from client applications to the server in order to access or modify data.

        6. Client-side APIs Use ActiveX controls to launch applications on the client or to provide other features that enhance Windows SharePoint Services.
