Migrate an ASP.NET application to SharePoint

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We have a requirement where we need to migrate an existing ASP.NET application to SharePoint(MOSS 2007). The current ASP.NET application uses different BAL and DAL layers to talk to backend systems, there around 300 dynamic pages for different kind of forms and to display data from backend, 100 static aspx pages, around 20 user contorls. It also uses the a custom build javascript library for AJAX functioanlity.

Whats should be startgies to migrate a typical ASP.NET 2.0 application to MOSS 2007 portal?

This is what I thought of:
  1. Convert all the dynamic ASPX pages to Web Parts(WPs). Should I do this or use the existing aspx pages in sharepoint, i.e. copying the exising aspx pages in _layout folder
  2. Use the same BAL and DAL components without any change. Should I write wrapper components for exisitng BAL & DAL components and use the wrapper components in SharePoint application?

Script to migrate content from one sharepoint We application to another sharepoint Web Application


Hello Everybody,


I have a requirement where in I will have to move content from one web app to another web app in the same far. Well this migration process has to be automated and scheduled at midnight everyday.


My thoughts for this requirement are:

1. Have a batch script scheduled. And basically this script is gary lapointe extensions where in it will copy the content from one list to another list.


2. have a Workflow running at background (this is tedious and I am convinced by this approach)




3. Content Deployment path in central admin


Can somebody suggest me a better approach for this or if any of the above approaches are correct then let me know pros and cons of that method.


thanks in advance



Migrate Sharepoint 2007 DB to 64-bit Windows Application Error


Hi All,

I am in the process of migrating my companies MOSS environment to 64bit.

I am following the directions on the technet article here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd622865(office.12).aspx

Phase 1 of the plan is to migrate the databases to their new server first.

I have followed the given instructions, and all databases are on the new server (and deleted off the old) but something in Sharepoint is still pointing to the old SQL server. On the application servers, I am getting the following windows event every few seconds:

Cannot connect to SQL Server. SOMSQL01\MOSSTEST not found. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

Central Admin also says that the SQL server is the old one. I know that it is actually using the new server because the old server has been switched off and all the sites are still functioning correctly.

Central Admin also shows that the main database server is still the old one, but has the new one listed under Operations - Servers in Farm.

Trying to remove the old server using the 'Remove Server' link under Operations - Servers in Farm simply reloa

Integrating a Legacy Web Application in SharePoint

This month we will continue with the theme of deploying Microsoft's SharePoint as a company intranet by describing a method for integrating a legacy Web application inside a SharePoint site.

In many companies the intranet site is not just a home page with announcements. It houses Web applications used by many different departments. In last month's article, I built a page to search the employee table in Northwind (the sample database included in Microsoft's SQL Server). This month, I will move the Web pages used to add/remove records from the table into the SharePoint intranet.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.

Migrate DB + files outside DB into SharePoint using SSIS and scripts


Hello, just wanted to ask a question about SSIS and SharePoint, any input will be greatly appreciated.... did search the forum but could not find anything....

So basically we have a SQL Server DB with the metadata ONLY, WITHOUT the related files(doc/ppt/pdf..etc) which should've been in the DB and they are on a separate web server inside folders. Each row in the DB has a key (column) which matches the related folder's name, so for row with ID #112, there's a folder named ID112 on the web server with the relevant files inside. There could be more than 8+ files for one folder.  

Now, I think it is possible but just wanted to double check, would it be possible to use SSIS and some kind of a script to get the metadata inside the SQL DB AND the related files inside those folders, combine & relate them and upload them into SharePoint as a custom list with file attachments? would they display the attachment normally (like the paperclip icon in a sharepoint list...etc) I wonder if anyone has tried this...

Any guidance, thoughts, suggestions for other solutions, inputs will be great!!! Thank you!!
