Research for the Week-Memory Management Part 1
Do you know what happens when you create a new instance of a class? Why do we need a value type and a reference type? Do you know what is meant when the .NET framework is referred to as a “managed” platform? What is managed versus unmanaged code? Why do we need a .NET runtime? What is a memory leak; is that like an oil leak? All of these are questions that you should be able to answer as a Microsoft developer. If you can’t answer them all, then keep reading as the next series of research blogs that ......

Getting a List of a User’s SharePoint Groups
I found it very odd that this was not available when doing some search engine queries. My requirement was to take in an AD user name and query SharePoint 2010 to determine the SharePoint groups in which the account belongs. The code was to run from within a RIA Authentication Service, which is code run on a server and is not likely on the SharePoint server. This code will also work with SharePoint 2007 (WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007). You will need to add a Web Reference to http(s)://<spservername&... ......

SharePoint Planning/Design Worksheet Links
I ran across a blog entry with a consolidated list of links to the SharePoint 2007 planning worksheets. These are good starting points for your discovery, analysis, and design and are provided by Microsoft. I would suggest tweaking them to meet your organizational needs. http://itfootprint.wordpres... TechNet provides a consolidated list of planning worksheets for SharePoint 2010. Technorati ......

SharePoint Excel Services 2007 is Exciting, HUH?
Over the past three plus years that I have been working with SharePoint, I have never had the pleasure of giving an Excel Services presentation to a client. Well, thanks to our awesome sales team this past week I was able to do that very thing. I have been a part of some Excel Services implementations, but they were really focused on trying to create a “poor man’s” business intelligence solution with use Excel Services and Excel on top of an Analysis Services OLAP. Of course, this was prior to the ......

SharePoint 2010 PnP Guidance Drop 2 Released
On Monday the PnP team released the 2nd drop of the SharePoint 2010 Guidance. Included is an example of a sandboxed solution, which is a good list aggregation scenario related to SOW’s (statements of work) and estimates across a number of sub-sites. I am VERY excited about the work that is being done and guidance documentation and code that will be released soon. You will also begin to see tests utilizing Moles for “detouring” or “mocking” as well as examples of tests using several different unit ......

PDC 2009 Hangover
For the first time in my career I have attended a major conference and it was well worth the wait. I had a handful of major objectives in attending of which all were met. Gain an understanding of Azure and how we can leverage it for our small and mid market customers. Gain more detailed insight into changes in SharePoint 2010 that will impact customizations and solutions that we provide our customers. Have some dialog with some of the MS data team members and others to understand MS’ vision for data ......

Quick Update & Upcoming Events
I’ll be very busy over the coming weeks wrapping up a big project for a client so I won’t have much time to write. Here is a brief update on happenings. This week I was able to purchase my PDC 2009 ticket. I am very much looking forward to this event as there are a LOT of exciting topics with the upcoming releases, Office 2010, VSTS 2010, and .NET 4.0. I’ll be pretty busy after this event doing presentations at work, for clients, and a few user groups in the area after learning more at the PDC. Next ......

Wrapper for the SharePoint List Service
It has been a long time coming and I was finally able to find a diamond in the rough by locating a wrapper for the “challenging” yet powerful Lists.asmx service provided by WSS 3.0. On my current project we had the need to interact with WSS to pull back some document templates that reside in a document library. It only made sense for the implementation of this repository to use Lists.asmx or interact with a custom service that uses the SharePoint object model. I figured by now someone had created ......

Accessing Resources/DB from an ASP.NET Application Hosted in SharePoint
This past week I was reminded of the “fun” in which hosting an application within SharePoint can present. We are developing a custom application for our client in which some areas must reside within a SharePoint environment. We did quite a bit of our development in this first iteration within a web application in order to pull things together and present the client with a working end-to-end “prototype.” The architecture is composed of several layers all of which will be “in process” communications ......

Really, What is the Cost of WSS 3.0?
If WSS is free then what are the limitations? There is nothing good that is completely free, right? According to what I have found, if you setup WSS using SQL Server Embedded Edition (on the same server and not Express), then there is not a size limit. You have to setup WSS with the Basic option in order for it to install SQL Server EE (not Express); otherwise Express is installed and there is a 4 GB limit. Some are saying 500 GB may be a size constraint with EE, but I am not sure. SQL Server EE ......

Took My First MS Exam in over 6 Years
After a long break, I’m back at taking MS cert exams. I recently passed the MS 070-541 exam, MS WSS 3.0 App Dev. Man, SharePoint is interesting. Some of the questions were tricky, but in the end with a good bit of hands on real-world experience and a few weeks of reading and studying the test was passed. It is interesting how you can take one exam and become an MCTS. I’ve already started studying for the first of two upgrade exams from .NET MCSD to VS 2005 MCP Enterprise. I have less than three weeks ......
