Building and Deploying Projects

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
One of my biggest obstacles to development is that whenever I want to deploy a change I have to run a series of powershell scripts to destroy the site, retract the solution, install the solution and create the site. With the current small to medium size of my project they take about 6 to 8 minutes to run, that's a lot of downtime/time when i'm not coding during a day! I'd be keen to hear about how anyone else builds, we've used VS2010 deployment in the past but we occasionally ran into strange issues, so hence the powershell - i think VS largely does the same thing anyway? My second question is can i parallelise any of these tasks? For instance, should it be safe to destroy the site and retract the solution at the same time rather than one after the other? Thanks, HC

ASP.NET Security: An Introductory Guide to Building and Deploying More Secure Sites with ASP.NET and


Forms authentication is one of the most compelling and useful new features of ASP.NET. It enables developers to declaratively specify which files on their site can be accessed and by whom, and allows identification of a login page. When an unauthenticated user attempts to retrieve a page protected by forms authentication, ASP.NET automatically redirects them to the login page and asks them to identify themselves. Included here is an overview of forms authentication and what you need to know to put it to work. Also included is hard-to-find information on the security of cookie authentication and on combining forms authentication with role-based URL authorizations.

ASP.NET Security: An Introductory Guide to Building and Deploying More Secure Sites with ASP.NET and


ASP.NET and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) work together to make building secure Web sites a breeze. But to do it right, you have to know how the two interrelate and what options they provide for securing access to a Web site's resources. This article, the first in a two-part series, explains the ABCs of Web security as seen through the eyes of ASP.NET and includes a hands-on tutorial demonstrating Windows authentication and ACL authorizations. A range of security measures and authentication methods are discussed, including basic authentication, digest authentication, and role-based security.

.NET Framework: Building, Packaging, Deploying, and Administering Applications and Types-Part 2


Part 1 of this series discussed how types built for the common language runtime can be shared among applications in the Microsoft .NET Framework regardless of the .NET languages used to build them. This second part continues with building assemblies by first covering security, sharing assemblies, versioning, localization, and side-by-side execution. Because in .NET two DLLs with the same name can be loaded as long as another attribute-which can include the localization language-differs, versioning is much easier than it used to be, so DLL Hell may become a thing of the past.

.NET Framework: Building, Packaging, Deploying, and Administering Applications and Types


Types that are built for the Common Language Runtime can be shared among applications in the Microsoft .NET Framework no matter which of the .NET languages they were built in, an obvious benefit to developers. This article describes the building, packaging, and deploying of applications and types for the .NET Framework, including the role and significance of assemblies, private and otherwise. The way metadata and assemblies help to solve some historical problems like versioning conflicts and DLL Hell, and how they improve system stability are also discussed.

Error When Deploying Multiple Projects in a Solution

We have a solution with 16 projects, where all but 3 are Sharepoint 2010 projects. When we deploy the projects in VS2010 individually, everything is fine, but when we deploy the solution (right-click, deploy), we experience one of two problems: 1. Not all projects get deployed, some just give the following message: "Deployment was not performed for this project because it is a dependent project." 2. Some of the projects (currently always the same three Sharepoint2010 projects) give the following error during the "Recycle IIS Application Pool" step: "Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': The open operation did not complete within the allotted timeout of 00:01:00. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout." We don't have any dependencies set up in the projects except for the ones which are automatically created when we add project references. If we do two subsequent solution deployments, the first one will suffer from issue 1 and the second from issue 2 as well. When issue 2 happens, the faulty projects can't even be deployed individually until VS2010 has been restarted.   A Google search has revealed nothing at all. We're at a loss and it's getting to be very frustrating for the entire team. Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks, Bjoern

Problem building with InternalsVisibleTo with projects having workflows with default value set to ar

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Building a grouping Grid with GridView and ASP.NET AJAX toolkit CollapsiblePanel

I've posted an update to this post to apply on demand loading of Details data using ASP.NET AJAX PageMethods. I'm demonstrating the usage if CollapsiblePanelExtender client events on the new post. Check it out.

I admit, Matt Berseth is really inspiring me! Few days ago I pass through 2 of his great posts:

.Surrounding your Data Table and Dialog Controls with ComponentArt Styled Panels
.Building a Grouping Grid with the ASP.NET 3.5 LinqDataSource and ListView Controls
The first one is pure design tips one which I used for making good presentation of my demo here. The 2nd post is actually the idea.

Building Layered Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 - Part 1

"Building Layered Web Applications" that shows you how to build N-Layer applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. These articles teach you how to design, build and use custom business objects in your web application. The target audience for this series are developers that are ready to make the switch from using SqlDataSource controls to ObjectDataSource controls with custom business objects. Experience with ASP.NET 2 and C# is necessary while some knowledge about object oriented design certainly helps. The design I am going to show you in these articles is a simplified version of a design you would use in a real world application. It doesn't feature all the necessary functionality your application needs, but instead focuses on the underlying concepts.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

How to get more information about the exceptions that can happen in SharePoint 2010 projects?

In case there is an exception anywhere in the SharePoint 2010 project (most common place an exception would happen is during deployment of your SharePoint project, custom deployment configuration or custom deployment steps), there's a registry key EnableDiagnostics available for you to use.

deploying to msdeploy does not support a proxy server
