Microsoft SharePoint 2010 introduces many powerful new capabilities
for organizations and developers. However, new capabilities mean new
design challenges, new architecture considerations, and new choices
and trade-offs for developers. Should you build your application as
a farm solution, or should you target the new sandbox environment?
Should you create a full-trust proxy assembly to extend the capabilities
of your sandboxed solutions? Should you build your data store using
SharePoint lists or an external database? What are the capabilities and
performance implications of the new LINQ to SharePoint provider? How
can you maximize the efficiency of the new client-side APIs when you
Designing Solutions for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 can help you answer
many of these questions. It draws together much of the core material
produced by the Microsoft patterns & practices team for the Developing
Applications for SharePoint 2010 online guidance, a release that includes
documentation, reference implementations, and reusable code utilities.
The book tackles four core areas of architecture and development for
SharePoint applications: execution models, data models, client application
models, and application foundations.
In each area, the book focuses on providing you with the information
you need in order to make the right architecture and development decisions.
It provides detailed technical insights to help you gain a deeper
understanding of how the platform works, offers side-by-side comparisons
of different approaches to common SharePoint development tasks
and architecture decisions, and presents design patterns that improve
the flexibility and robustness of your code. In short, Designing Solutions
for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 can help you take your SharePoint design
and development skills to the next level.
