Features of SharePoint Development

Features of SharePoint Development

SharePoint has much architecture which means in the context of applications, many distinct platforms and uses. SharePoint can be a portal server, a groupware application kit, a workflow host, content management application, business intelligence application kit, operating system of an intranet, a host for services, a data store, and the data and processing layer for multiple user interfaces.

SharePoint Foundation is built on Microsoft.NET Framework 3.54, ASP.NET, and Intranet Information Services (IIS). SharePoint can also be built on SQL servers. Al servers that will use SharePoint must run on a 64-bit installation of Windows Server 2008 or higher. Standard and Enterprise editions of SharePoint are available.

Corporate developers of SharePoint do not install SharePoint by using MSI or Click Once technology. SharePoint actually has its own installation system. Instead of MSI files, SharePoint packages solutions in its own solution package files. Generally these are CAB files that have a special extension: .wsp. SharePoint package files also contain different elements which include user controls, assemblies, resource files, images, ASP.Net pages, web components etc. Java Script files and Silver-light.xap files are also deployed to company servers by SharePoint Solution Packages.

SharePoint is a single platform; from a SharePoint side, this is a single web-hosting application. The SharePoint Client Object model includes Microsoft.NET Framework, Microsoft Silver-light applications and JavaScript. JavaScript files are downloaded automatically to the user’s computer when a page is accessed. JavaScript is the most familiar framework and the one used by developers when developing corporate SharePoint applications. Silver-light object models are downloaded in the .xap file the Microsoft Silver-light assemblies and are encased. Alternate downloads to the server are accessed using Silver-light.  A third object model is called .NET framework and this is used only if the object model found in the assemblies get installed to the client computer. Use the official registration package, SharePoint Foundation 2010 Client Object Model Redistributable when this object model is accessed.

What does this outsourcing and SharePoint development models mean to clients

Working with Microsoft SharePoint and client will require outsourced developers to know and use the client’s browser or other access tools. The computer jargon and development tools needed for SharePoint are developed for employees to save time searching for forms, files, and basic data. SharePoint is a storage tool that will provide proprietary information that can only be accessed on the company computer. SharePoint basically is the vehicle which stores information for employees and certain trusted clients.

To develop a client SharePoint file, reclaim the context object from the client side that represents the current request. Through this context, obtain access to client objects at the site-collection. After a client object is obtained, a query is setup and loaded. Using an execute query method (Java Script is perfect) send the query to the server. The query commands are SML and process on the server. Batch commands are calls to the serve-side object model. Returned data comes back to the client by the service as JSON data. Developers who will install SharePoint on client web servers will know all the language to use. All the client needs to know is that SharePoint is not as complicated as it sounds – it is a retrieval and storage mechanism.
