I'm new on this forum. I don't speak very well english, but I'll go to make an effort. (sorry for faults)

I have to develop a connector to export data from MOSS 2007 in an external application. For example, I want to get a list of all users of the portal.

I'd found lot of help, but for each of these helps, we're in a SharePoint context. For example, with SPUser or other SP****

I'd find the SPToolBox on this site, but it doesn't do what I want, or I didn't understood how it work.

So, my question is simple (^^):

How can I get the user list of a portal, from an external application?

Do I need to use web service? features? or others things?

I searched for some weeks, but I found nothing helpful.


(After this problem, I will have another, get alert out of MOSS, not mail, not RSS... it will be funny...)*

edit : 

Thanks to bradhuggins, after some other research, I found his ListReader and I am inspired from it to get users informations. It was very Helpful.

But, it's not the end, because now, I have to get all alert from these users and list them, and further, make real time notification when an event occur.
