Part III. Groupware Applications and Services

Internet services are, by their very nature, scriptable components that can be combined in novel ways. This part shows how to build custom groupware solutions—a collaborative document-review system, a helpdesk, a group calendar, a subscriber-oriented docbase notification system—based on HTTP, NNTP, SMTP, and LDAP services. Discussion plays a key role in several of these solutions, and the part concludes with a tutorial on setting up and using NNTP discussion servers.
