Resources for soup-to-nuts of website development lifecycle



 I'm looking for a website, or book, or some resource that can lead me down the path from website design to implementation/deployment. I know that covers a ton of material, but I am really looking for the bullet points, or high-lights, to make sure that I think of everything. I am mostly fuzzy on security measures and deployment since I haven't been involved in those aspects before.

Background:  I have been a programmer for many years, and with a little over 3 years' experience coding websites in vb.net/asp.net with sql server. Due to recent restructuring/layoffs at our firm, I find myself in the position of lead IT person - I'm feeling a bit underqualified but I feel this is my chance to work hard and step up to it. I'm very good at vb.net, master pages, css, asp.net, sql server. I'm worried that the person who was the lead before was doing a bunch of stuff that I'm not aware of...so I need to start learning more than just the code. I don't need lessons on how to code anything...I need to learn how it all gets put together - the next step up.

thanks for any suggestions!

SOAP Toolkit 2.0: New Definition Languages Expose Your COM Objects to SOAP Clients


In SOAP Toolkit 2.0, the Services Description Language (SDL) has been replaced with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and the Web Services Meta Language (WSML). WSDL and WSML files describe the interfaces to a service and expose COM objects to SOAP clients. This article describes a custom tool, IDL2SDL, which takes an IDL file and produces WSDL and WSML files without waiting for a DLL or TLB file to be generated. Also shown is a customized development environment in which WSDL and WSML files automatically reflect the changes to IDL files.

Progress Bar with Survey


I got the below lireature from http://doc.essentialobjects.com/library/1/eo.web.progressbar.aspx. The only thing I have found this good for is if there is a task or process that you want to show the user the status of how much is completed. In my case I just want to show the user how far along they are in a survey. I am having trouble understanding this so that I can write client side JavaScript API to get this to work and do  what I need to do, which is increase the progress meter and show how far along in the survey the user is. It says to use ProgressBar.setValue(value), but I dont know where to place it in my application, nor what value to pass, to where?  Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

ProgressBar Class

A ProgressBar is a graphical component that provides information about the status of a given task.

For a list of all members of this type, see ProgressBar Members.


Add Release-Only try-catch to CLR languages

Deploying a software, it's a common practice to encapsulate top-most function calls and/or event handlers with general try-catch blocks to deliver an error description to the user instead of just having him/her see the software exiting unexpectedly when unexpected exceptions occur. Unfortunately, during debugging it is most annoying to reach these log entries or message boxes instead of having Visual Studio halt where the exception occured. At the time of writing it is possible to designate particular exception types to halt the debugger when they are actually thrown. But it becomes a nuisance when there are many exception types to be marked this way. Plus, it becomes contra-productive if there is a scenario when expected exceptions of the marked types occur regularly and "Continue" has to be selected again and again in the debugger. Thus, I'd like to suggest to add a new, Microsoft specific, "try" keyword to all of the CLR languages (plus C++), perhaps something like "__try". This new kind of try should create a try-catch block only when compiling in Release mode. (This behaviour might apply to other configurations as well. I suppose the Configuration Settings dialog to provide an additional checkbox column to provide an option to select whether a particular configuration will create a try-catch block or not.)   See here for

Search content of different languages in one language of MOSS

Hi, Hope you guys can help to answer this Search question. E.g. English MOSS is installed, content in English, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Japanese are input to the system (either in Word/Excel file, ASPX page, Blog entry or Wikis page). In this case, how can the user search content by entering search keywords in languages other than English? The reason I ask this question is that: MOSS Search Engine uses English work-breaker/stemmer in the crawling and query process in MOSS English Version. Then, it cannot distinguish which languages are being crawled, e.g. pretending Japanese and Chinese as English when crawling the content. Is there any advanced way to solve this issue in MOSS 2007, besides installing various languages of MOSS in different servers? This problem exists in SharePoint 2003, so now I wonder if there is any improvement in 2007. As you know this is especially important in HK environment. Every customer ask the same question in Pre-Sales demo. Thanks in advance. Paul

Is there any possibility to define a search scope for a Survey

Hi All, I have a survey list in SharePoint. I need to define a search scope such that the search results are pulled only from this Survey list. I have created many scopes for lists and was always working fine without any issues. But now, i created a scope for the Survey list, with the rule to include items from the folder https://server/lists/Survey%20list.spx. Though there are around of 1000's of items in the list, after the crawl the number of items returned is zero. So, is there any way for defining a scope for a Survey? Thanks in Advance... Regards, Sivai... :)

Link Access 2007 to SharePoint 2007 Survey

So here is my problemo. I am trying to organize site requests into a system that will let us easially see what requests have come in and who are the particular owners or users associated with the requests. Currently we use a SharePoint 2007 Survey to collect all the requests. I was hoping to upgrade things by linking the Survey list to an Access 2007 db so we can manage the data better. However, whenever I attempt to link the Access DB to a SharePoint list, none of the survey lists show up. I was wondering if there was a way to make it so whenever someone completes a survey, it updates the Access DB. I have figured out a way to get this to work with InfoPath but I would rather use the surveys that already exist. Thank you, Jeb G.

Odd SharePoint Survey behavior

I created two survey's. Let's call them A and B. Created both from the same template. Have created over 100 other surveys from the same template in the past and have never seen this phenomenon before. Created survey A. Everything looks fine. Had a coworker put in a fake response and it was shown normally. Created survey B. Same result; everything is fine. Then I went back to survey A and I see the responses for B. The A responses are no longer showing. When I go to 'survey settings' for A, I get the page for survey B settings. I can hover over the response links in A and see they are pointing to B. However, if I go to 'all site content' I see both A and B listed. If I hover over A, it show the link going to A (as it should). If I click the link, I am taken to survey A....but it's still showing responses from B! The only way to get to the actual A responses is to use 'manage content and structure' to manually get there. Everything appears checked in and up to date. I have never seem this before and really have no idea what to try....
