Sharepoint 2010 Third Party Forums

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Can anyone suggest any third party forum software that integrates with Sharepoint 2010? We are evaluating Lightning Tools Social Squared forum and this is a good product which probably meets 80% of my clients requirements. What else should I be looking at?

Which questions don't go to SharePoint 2010 forums

(work in progress)

This is to some extent based on a post that was necessary in the earlier SharePoint forums.

Here's a list of topic areas that have no place in the SharePoint 2010 forums

1. Questions on earlier SharePoint versions (STS; SPS 2001; WSS 2.0; SPS 2003; WSS 3.0; MOSS 2007).

These continue to go to the original SharePoint forums here:

2. Questions on Project Server 2010.

There is now (November 2009) a Project Server 2010 forum here

In time additional Project Server 2010 forums may be added in which case they will be listed here

3. Questions

Migrating 3rd Party document Libraries to SharePoint 2010



I'm looking at migrating a 3rd party document library to SharePoint 2010. After reviewing the SDK, I have some questions.

First, would it be more feasible to use the Content Migration Library or the Document Management Library to perform the migration?

Second, regrading the creation of the .CMP file. I understand the .CMP file is simply a CAB file with relevant XML files stored inside. I guess my question is, how should I procuce this .CMP file? Should I use the CAB SDK or is there an alternative SDK I should be using? And what compression should I be using etc.

I appreciate and feedback on this issue.

3rd Party Document Management Migration to SharePoint 2010



I am scoping out a document migration project to SharePoint 2010. I would like to ask a couple of questions about using the SharePoint SDK's to perform the migration to SharePoint from a 3rd party document management library. I would appreciate any comments or feedback. 

After reviewing the SDK's there are 2 I focused on. The Content Migration API and DocumentManagement API. Am I correct in assuming that the DocumentManagement API is used primarily for accessing documents and not necessarily perform a migration?

Second, the Content Migration documentation implies that it can be used to migrate 3rd party document libraries to sharepoint. From what I've seen, the method to do this would be to produce the XML files required by the Admin tool and store them in a .CMP file, which is just a CAB file. Yet, I don't see any methods outside the Run method for the SPImport and SPExport classes that can be used to produce the .CMP file.

Are there API's that i am missing or is this correct? If there are no other API's available to produce the .CMP using the SharePoint SDK, would it be feasible to use the CAB SDK to produce the .CMP file instead? If so, is there compression issues I need to be aware of and so forth?

I appreciate any insight regarding these questions.

ClientAccessPolicy file in SharePoint 2010

I am upgrading my Silverlight demo code from the old beta to beta 2 and see that there are a few new considerations for the deployment of ClientAccessPolicy.xml files. In a previous post I demonstrated how to do this for SharePoint 2007. The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues. In 2010 the virtual path provider no longer serves the files from the root of the site collection
