I am scoping out a document migration project to SharePoint 2010. I would like to ask a couple of questions about using the SharePoint SDK's to perform the migration to SharePoint from a 3rd party document management library. I would appreciate any comments or
After reviewing the SDK's there are 2 I focused on. The Content Migration API and DocumentManagement API. Am I correct in assuming that the DocumentManagement API is used primarily for accessing documents and not necessarily perform a migration?
Second, the Content Migration documentation implies that it can be used to migrate 3rd party document libraries to sharepoint. From what I've seen, the method to do this would be to produce the XML files required by the Admin tool and store them in a .CMP file,
which is just a CAB file. Yet, I don't see any methods outside the Run method for the SPImport and SPExport classes that can be used to produce the .CMP file.
Are there API's that i am missing or is this correct? If there are no other API's available to produce the .CMP using the SharePoint SDK, would it be feasible to use the CAB SDK to produce the .CMP file instead? If so, is there compression issues I need to
be aware of and so forth?
I appreciate any insight regarding these questions.
