ADO.NET Data Services provide Web-accessible endpoints that allow you to filter, sort, shape, and page data without having to build that functionality yourself.

Web services use XML to communicate with each other. But sometimes the XML your service emits is not the same XML that another service is expecting. If you want to avoid the problems that this kind of situation can cause, you need to get good control over your XML serialization. Here author Chris Dix shows you exactly how to tackle this problem.

SQL Server 2000 Meta Data Services is a repository technology that stores and manages metadata for SQL Server. Instead of building database schemas over and over, Meta Data Services allows you to freeze an entire schema for use in other projects. You can also use these schemas for training, testing, or debugging. In this article, the authors will review the various components of Meta Data Services and show how it can be programmed using a Visual Basic client, XML, and XSLT. They will also show you how to manage and manipulate your metadata by generating a simple database schema using a SQL Server repository.

I need to change the look and feel of "NewForm.aspx" for my Sharepoint 2007 Document Library. But the constraints are
1. I cant use C# coding. No Visual Studio.
2. Not allowed change anything in the farm level. e.g. cant install features/webparts fo this.
Please help me, I dont know if this is really possible. Let me know if any alternative is possible.
Can some give me some guidance on how to create a 'Contracted Services' Dimension?
I have the following working Dimensions:
Customers and Services
And a Fact_Service_Usage. Fact_Service_Usage has a CustomerKey and a ServiceKey. This creates a proper intersection of Services_Usage, Customer and Service.
However, in our business we need to ensure we only report on 'Contracted Services'.
So I need to create a Dimension that properly enumerates only those services for which the Customer is contracted. I have a table called DimContractedServices that holds the CustomerKey and the ServiceKey for those services for which they are contracted.
In the Data Source View I create the relationships between the respective Keys and use the Dimension Building Wizard to create the Contracted Services Dimension.
This Dimension is not working correctly.
Could someone help walk me through an example of how they would approach building this ContractedServices Dimension correctly? Perhaps someone has built a similar Dimension and can give me some hints on how to structure this so that it allows the enumeration
of the .MEMBERS for only ContractedServices.
Thanks very much for the assistance.
I have a SP2007 app that adds a BDC column to a list like this:
string xml = "<Field Type=\"BusinessData\" DisplayName=\"Product\" ...>";
SPField fld = list.fields.AddFieldAsXml(xml, true, addOptions);
BusinessDataField bdcField = fld as BusinessDataField;
bdcField.SystemInstanceName = instance;
bdcField.EntityName = entity;
bdcField.BdcFieldName = bdcFldName;
bdcField.Profile = profile;
bdcField.HasActions = hasActions;
How do I do it in SP 2010? Class BusinessDataField does not exist in Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls,
and I found no samples.
Thanks in advance
I need to create a WCF web service . My service will operate on LAN hence I wish to use TCP protocol for that.
So I need to host that web service on windows service.
But I don't know how to make that web service compatible with other platforms.

I have to create sites for the departments like( IT, Admin, Payroll, HR and so on...) and these sites should be in the top link bar and according to the user's group or profile the above departments should be visible on the top link bar.
I want to use same URL but for different groups top link bar of the departments should be visible.
Example:in the top link bar HR department should be visible only for the HR. and If i create a group that can see the two departments then two department should be visible in the top link bar.
