Mixing Foundation & Enterprise Functionality

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hey all,

We currently use WSS 3.0 with PerformancePoint 2007 and are thinking about upgrading to SharePoint 2010.

We don't want to buy a SharePoint CAL for all our users as most just very basic SharePoint functionality that would be covered by the Foundation product. However we do have some users that use PerformancePoint which has now moved to the Enterprise product.

What would the best way of combining these be? Can I create a SP foundation farm for the 90% of users and add an Enterprise Server to the farm for those few that need the Enterprise functionality?

Is it possible to mix the server licenses in a single farm? Do I gain much from having them both in the same machine?

SharePoint 2010 Foundation - How To create PressRelease functionality




I need to create means to create pressreleases. In SharePoint 2010 Standard/Enterprise that isn't such a big deal. I create a pagelayout et voila. Seems that Foundation does not provide this functionality.

My Questions:

  1. Is this correct?
  2. If not how can I create this functionality?

I already found this link but...



Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

Getting Started with Windows Communication Foundation

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a unified framework for rapidly building service-oriented applications that makes it easy to build and consume secure, reliable, and transacted Web services. It unifies the capabilities in ASMX, WSE, Remoting, COM+, and MSMQ; therefore developers need to learn only one programming model.

Windows Presentation Foundation and your architecture

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a new client user interface technology that ships as part of the .NET 3.0 Framework. Architects have long faced the challenge of selecting an appropriate presentation tier technology for their applications. In recent times, if you are developing for the Windows platform, it was at least a fairly short list. You either built a web application, a smart client, a mobile device, or some combination of those depending on your target audience. Which one you picked gave you a fairly short list of practical options in the .NET space - ASP.NET, Windows Forms, and Compact Framework respectively.

MVC + Frames in an enterprise web application


Hi people

I'm designing an enterprise web application interface based on an old system, and i planned to migrate the old frames layout to master page, but i noticed that if i use masterpages, the application users will be able to see the querystring or route path, and it could be a security issue.

What is the best way to avoid this? Using frames? Masterpages with iframes as content? Masterpages with all PartialViews loaded by jquery?

MVC + Enterprise Library


Not a MVC specific question, but as that's what I'm doing I thought I'll post here.

While looking into the source code of an existing application, I stumbled upon MS Enterprise Library, and as I only heard about these "application block" stuff decided to look into it.

From the theory it sounds like a pretty usefull thing and it made me wonder if other's are using it succesfully along with MVC projects (I know they are not really related!)?

Pro's and Con's? 

I like the database block, as I did not get to any real database development the last 1.5 years, for instance. (Bad excuse I know).  Having an IoC thrown in there (Unity) sounds like I can pretty much stop using 3rd party libraries like I do now all over the place.

Using the ConsoleTraceListener with the Enterprise Library 3.1 Logging Block


I'm new to using the Logging application block.  I think I have a pretty good handle on how things work.  However, I'm running into a problem.  I'm using the RollingFlatFileListener and I have formatted the logging template to be more like the logging we are replacing.  However, in our console apps when the ConsoleTraceListener is added it still logs it out in the default text template format.  Is there any way to get around this?  Currently it looks like I will have to create a new TraceListener called FormattedConsoleListener that allows a text formatter to be associated with it.  Is this the only way?

Data Truncation issue with Enterprise Library Logging WriteLog stored Proc


Hi ,

I'm using Enterprise Library Logging  feature for logging. The issue i am facing is when the Logging message is too large(more than 65534 chars) ,complete data  is not logged in the Formatted Mesage column which is  of data Type nText .

I am able insert complete data if i try inserting from Sql insert Query from sql management studio. Do i need to add any attributes to data base listener or do i need to change the sp.

 Is there any way to increase the WriteLog stored proc param size in EnterpriseLibrary.Logging config file ? . Please let me know.


Thanks In Advance.

Using Enterprise Library for first time



I wan to use the enterprise library for the first time. Is there any samples, quick start guide or ebook is available for a quick start and learn the basics.

I have vs2008, so which version of EL should I use?

And if somebody can just brief about Enterprise Library. Because as per my understanding, is this a mixture of design patterns and some pre-made blocks of source code.
