Sharepoint Service Applications question, architecture

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I read an article in documentation:

When for example u want to use service applications you need to connect your service
applications to the WFE’s. This is done using a proxy (don’t think WCF/ASMX proxy… think of it
in the more generic term for now (as compared to 2007)).

I donnt exactly undestand this - so what is this proxy and what is communication Protocol between WFE and the application server?

Second question is if it is truth, then if there are two farms or more then could you search content through all of them using one Search Service Application? And would it be enough to have ONE search server in total and on the other farm there would be only some proxy to search sevice?

Service Applications missing from SharePoint Server 2010 Installation


Hi Guys, 

I recently completed an in-place upgrade from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 to SharePoint Server 2010. While the first half of this migration process seems to have worked from WSS 3.0 to Foundation 2010 the upgrade from Foundation 2010 to Server 2010 has left the installation with only the Foundation level service applications.

If I go to add a new service application the only ones listed are the foundation service applications but if I go to check the current license it confirms the enterprise server edition is installed. I have re-ran the product configuration wizard and if I check the patch status in central administration it confirms that all the enterprise components are installed they just aren't showing up in the service applications listing! 

Any ideas on how I can add these missing services to central administration?

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

SharePoint Tutorial - SharePoint Logical Architecture

The SharePoint logical architecure consists of nested and isolated levels. These levels provide benefits for security, navigation, search, branding and ect. depending on the level

SharePoint Farm
The base level for any SharePoint implementation is the SharePoint farm. Physically a farm can consist of one server or many servers. An organization may implement one or more farms. This usually depends on security and performance needs.

SharePoint Tutorial -SharePoint Physical Architecture

The SharePoint physical architecture consists of services running on one or more servers.

There are three types of services that together run the SharePoint farm: web, application and database services. Web services through Internet Information Server is what processes the ASP.Net and sends back the html to a user's browser. Application services is where the "brains" of SharePoint are located. All of the SharePoint specific logic and services are processed there. Database services are run by SQL Server and it's where all the data/content for SharePoint is stored.

Realizing a Service-Oriented Architecture with .NET

This article is meant to be a practical discussion guide to building a .NET application in a service-oriented architecture. We will consider real-world goals, real-world obstacles, and experience-based solutions. I quickly concede the approaches discussed here are not exhaustive or infallible. This paper is focused on application development, not application integration. We will specifically consider architectural issues and component design issues.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Best Coding Techniques To Improve Performance for SharePoint Applications

As more developers write custom code by using the SharePoint Object Model, they encounter common issues that can affect application performance.

The following areas reflect the main issues encountered by developers as they write custom code by using the SharePoint object model:

§ Disposing of SharePoint objects

§ Caching data and objects

§ Writing code that is scalable

Web Service for uploading documents into SharePoint

WS UploadService is a web service written for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and is meant for uploading documents into SharePoint.
