Remote file upload

Hi,

I have made simple file/document managent system with Ruby on Rails
(2.0), and would like to simplify how the users upload files to the
applicatation. I’m thinking of writing plugins to other applications,
ie. a “Upload to DMS”-button i Word.

Now I wonder how to accomplish something like this. Would it be
possible to make a WebService in my DMS, and then upload files through
it?

I’m grateful for any help!

Sure, provide an API that can be used by your plugin/desktop
application and POST the file just like u would from a browser (maybe
return the result as xml).
