White Paper Goes Under the Hood

White Paper Goes Under the Hood

  • Comments 5

Hello, Eray here -- just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up on a white paper some partners recently wrote titled, "Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: Under the Hood." I think the paper does a good job providing a little something for everyone. The opening sections provide a great intro if you're new to app building, or apps on WSS in general. The later sections briefly cover the main tools for building on the SharePoint platform and also discuss a high-level methodology for approaching these sorts of projects.

Folks that already have experience with both topics (which is probably most of our readers) will want to skip down to the "Implementing Common Design Patterns" section, starting on page 15 in the printed version. Here, the paper outlines 5 common patterns found in collaborative apps. With each pattern, the paper details a possible implementation of that pattern on WSS. Examples include things like building dashboard pages and getting started with parent-child list relationships.

The paper isn't intended to be a replacement for the WSS SDK or other resources, but are helpful in that they walk through concrete samples pulled from the Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services project. We'll probably use some of the patterns here as topics for future deep dives in the context of the blog. In fact, we've actually started doing so as seen in Rob Howard's post on setting default values with Javascript.

Hope you enjoy the paper!

  • Has anyone had trouble with .CMP backup files created with SPD 2007 failing to restore? ....the restore produces a message about a missing ExportSettings.xml tempory file.

  • Michael, for your backup/restore issue, see this KB article:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939287/en-us

  • That link is gone!

    1. Using stsadm -o backup is not an option, because I'm moving 2 copies of a website into one. (I've created a http://site2 with stsadm -o backup and stsadm -o restore). So due to identical GUIDS stsadm -o backup and restore is out of the question

    2. stsadm -o export is also not useful, because with this we loose all of the metadata (authors and "created" dates)

    3. The only remaining procedure I kno - SharePoint Designer site backup and restore is working only with sites up to 24 MB.

    Is there another way to backup and restore to same content DB and preserving "created" dates?
