Can sharepoint desinger consume wcf data service?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I am thinking to change my wcf data service based on ado.net data service because It seems that sharepoint designer does not understand.

I can use VS 2010 to develop it external list but I just want my clients to use sharepoint designer to do themself so I can only take care of the service

However If I do not use wcf data service, it look like that I have to do a lot of coding for the service itself

Could anyone please tell me how to use sharepoint designer to talk to the wcf data service, or other alternative approach?

Thank you in advance

User Profiles Service Application and Import of SharePoint 2007 SSP data

  
I have setup a test SharePoint 2010 Farm. I will be using this as a test upgrade of a current live SharePoint 2007 Farm. The database attach method will be used. I have replicated the web application and AAM settings of the SharePoint 2007 Farm to the SharePoint 2010 Farm and have made the 2010 Farm a DC in a new Forest. I don't want to join this to the current domain at the moment. It also has SQL server 2005 with SP3 and cumulative update 3 installed. I have just setup the User Profiles Serice Application and when I go to Manage it, I get this. Error An unexpected error has occurred.   Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: a1760e87-372f-4711-afac-3ceba34bc599 Date and Time: 8/31/2010 4:22:56 PM I have verified and configured the following. Created the Managed Metadata Service.

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

  
Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

WCF Data Service to Sharepoint returns items on my machine but not on server

  

In my ASP.NET 4.0 webapplication I have added a reference to our Sharepoint server. 

I then present some items using

      Dim Context As New Data.SharePoint.DataITDataContext(New Uri("http://sp01/data/_vti_bin/listdata.svc"))
        Context.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials
        ASPxGridView1.DataSource = Context.Dokumentation.Where(Function(Item) Item.KundNr = customer.CustomerID).ToList
        ASPxGridView1.DataBind()


While running it locally on my development machine (Using Visual Studio 2010) everything works. But as soon as I publish it to the IIS, which happens to be the SharePoint server, I no longer see any records. No exception is thrown or anything, I just do'nt get any data.

Any ideas on why?

      Dim Context As New Data.SharePoint.DataITDataContext(New Uri("http://sp01/data/_vti_bin/listdata.svc"))
        Context.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials

Cannot consume WCF Data Service from Visual Studio 2008

  

Hi all

I created  two similar oData services:

1. ADO.NET Data Service with Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET 3.5 SP

2. WCF Data Service using Visual Studio 2010

and they both work in IE.

I can make a Service Reference to the first one with VS2008.

The problem is when I try to use Visual Studio 2008 as a client and I try to add a Service Reference for the WCF Data Service made with Visual Studio 2010:
an Error (Details) occurred while attempting to find services at 'http://.............Myservice.svc'

and the Detail is:

DS_InvalidMetadataFile
Parameter name: edmxDocument

the xml of the 2 services is perfectly the same (with the exception of the url in the "base" attribute in the service node)

Any tip?

 

thx
