Ways to display data from a list in a different site collection

  Asked By: Jessie    Date: Jul 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8921

on my sharepoint site, I want to display data that lives in a list
in a different site collection. The first thing that comes to mind, is
to view it using the RSS Viewer, as a feed.

What are some other ways to do this? Looking for a brainstorm here.

How about a DataView WebPart that hits the Lists web service?

The only other way that comes to mind is to instantiate the SPSite and
manipulate the SPList directly with custom code. DataView is going to be a
lot more convenient if you're not looking for anything fancy (and sometimes
even if you are).

Both can be used to get data  from a list. Dspsts.asmx can also be used to get
the schema of the columns. So if you just want an easy way to get the list  data
and display  it use lists.asmx. If you need the schema information to know what
kind of data is in each column then use DSPsts.asmx.

If you only need to have a dropdown lookup from a list  in another site
collection, here is a possible solution for custom columns:

I'd recommend lists.asmx, since it has a long list  of defined functions and
I've used it successfully before. The other one seems fairly complicated at
first glance.

Apparently, "easy" once again just means "not as flexible". Here's a very
interesting exposition on the LDRS:

Since you'll be crossing a site  collection boundary to get to the other site an
RSS viewer  won't work unless you are using Kerberos. Without Kerberos about the
only way to do it (without custom programming) is to use the Microsoft Single
Sign on service with an XML web service data  feed to get the list  in the other
site and format it as a Data Form web part.
