Is Metro Interface a “Performance Driven Design”?

19 ביוני 2012

האם ממשק המטרו הוא רעיון גאוני לעיצוב מונחה ביצועים? כשיצא Windows Vista אני זוכר שקראתי ציטוט של מישהו ממיקרוסופט, שאמר משהו בסגנון שלמחשבים היום (אז) יש המון כוח עיבוד, (בצורת מעבדים חזקים, כרטיסי מסך משוכללים, וזכרון) והוא לא כל כך בא לידי ביטוי בשימוש יומיומי של גלישה באינטרנט ועריכת מסמכים. ולכן ניצלו את הכוח הזה ליצירת ממשק יותר יפה שנקרא Aero שגם על הדרך נותן תירוץ להשתמש בכל הכוח הזה שלרוב הוא לא מנוצל. Aero של Windows Vista וגם Windows 7 עושה שימוש בהרבה אלמנטים עיצוביים שדורשים כוח עיבוד רב כמו לדוגמא: שקיפות למחצה, אפקטים (לדוגמא, אפקט...

BDC -> BCS?

15 במאי 2012

MOSS 2007 had a feature called Business Data Catalog. When SharePoint 2010 came out, this feature was introduced as Business Connectivity Services. The common belief is that BCS is the new version of BDC, and that in the new version the name was changed from BDC to BCS. According to this, there is no reason to use the term BDC in the context of SharePoint 2010. This is not exactly correct. BDC was and still the infrastructure that allows SharePoint to connect to other systems. It has the concept of metadata...

Xml Serialize Interface Typed Members

30 באפריל 2012

If you try to serialize a class that has a public member of an interface type to xml file using the regular .net XmlSerializer, you will get an error: “Cannot serialize member {m} of type {t} because it is an interface.” ({m} and {t} are placeholders). In this post I suggest a workaround to this issue. Consider the following scenario: You have an object model like this: 1: public class Car 2: { ...

Enterprise Wiki site template vs. Wiki Library template

15 באפריל 2012

We all know wikis and how they work. It's a quick way to create inter-connected items of unstructured data. SharePoint 2010 Introduces two wiki solutions that appear similar on first sight, but are actually different. In this post I will cover technical differences between the two. First is the "Enterprise Wiki" site template. It's a template that can be used to create site collections, or sub-sites. The Enterprise Wiki site template creates a site that is dedicated to wiki content. The main component in the site is the "Pages" Library. We will explorer it later....

SharePoint 15 “Apps” (as documented in the CTP SDK)

26 במרץ 2012

A while ago, Microsoft has released a CTP (Community Tech Preview) version for the SDK (Software Development Kit) of the next version of SharePoint (aka SharePoint 15). Browsing through it I have learned about the new concept of Apps in SharePoint 15 (codename). In this post I will share my findings and conclusions. Disclaimer: This post is my personal take from browsing through the CTP SDK. This is not an official announcement. All the info this post is based upon is publicly available here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/confirmation.aspx?id=28768. I start by noticing the SPApp object, that...

Storing Configuration Settings For Timer Jobs

23 במרץ 2012

When you develop a custom timer job, there is often a need to store configuration settings. The best way to do this is using the Hierarchical Object Store in SharePoint, by creating an SPPerststedObject. There are plenty of articles out there that tell you to how to do this. For more info on this subject, see this: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc406686(office.12).aspx http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh528519.aspx So it’s called "hierarchical” object store, because you have to attach the settings to a certain object in the SharePoint object model, and that object...

Follow Up on My SharePoint Extreme Session on Claims Based Authentication

22 במרץ 2012

בכנס SharePoint Extreme האחרון העברתי מצגת על Claims Based Authentication עם SharePoint 2010. מכיוון שזהו נושא חדש יחסית, המצגת התמקדה בעיקר בהיכרות עם מה זה בכלל Claims Based Authenticatoin, ואיך זה עובד. לאחר המצגת קיבלתי שאלות בנוגע לתהליך הטכני. פוסט זה בא להבהיר את התהליך. התהליך שהצגתי הוא כזה: משתמש ניגש לשרת SP המשתמש מופנה ל STS STS מאמת את...
