Kevin Hoffman wrote his first line of code more than 21 years ago. When he received his first computer, a Commodore VIC-20, he became addicted immediately and has been writing code and learning as much about programming and the art of software development ever since. He has worked in many industries writing applications for the .NET Framework since the original 1.0 release, and, more recently, has been involved in development for the .NET Framework 3.0 and SharePoint 2007. He is currently a Research Developer for Liquidnet Holdings, one of the largest global institutional equities brokers, working on many varied technologies, including the .NET Framework and SharePoint 2007.


Rob Foster is an enterprise architect in Nashville, Tennessee. He began writing code at the age of 10 when he purchased his first computer, a Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer 2, with money that he received for his birthday. He graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a BBA in Computer Information Systems and holds several certifications, including MCSD, MCSE, MCDBA, and MCT. In 2000 with the PDC bits in hand, Rob founded the Nashville .NET Users Group (http://www.nashdotnet.org), which is a charter member of INETA. He has been writing and designing .NET applications since version 1.0, as well as has been implementing SharePoint solutions since SharePoint 2001. In his spare time, Rob enjoys writing books and articles relating to SharePoint and .NET. Rob lives in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, with his wife, Leigh, and two sons, Andrew and Will.

Introduction Introduction When many people first encounter Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS), they are often confused. Out of the box, a lot of people have trouble figuring out what it does and what it's for. The most important thing to realize about SharePoint is that it isn't intended to be a complete, off-the-shelf, shrink-wrapped product. Rather, MOSS is adevelopment platform, upon which powerful and compelling portal applications can be built. This book provides developers with a thorough, in-depth guide to the internals of writing code for the SharePointplatform. SharePoint programming can be divided into four main categories: programming the object model, programming the web services, programming the Web Parts, and programming the enterprise content. Programming the SharePoint object model involves writing code that physically resides on one of the front-end servers in a SharePoint web farm. Web services expose powerful SharePoint functionality to applications that donotreside on the same server as SharePoint, such as smart clients and other remote servers. Web Parts are components that can be dropped onto Web Part pages within a SharePoint site, which provide valuable displays for various types of data and functionality. Finally, enterprise content programming involves working with the Business Data Catalog. The following is a description of the chapters included in this book: Chapter 1: CAML Primer--This chapter provides an introduction to the Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML), an Extensible Markup Language (XML) dialect used throughout SharePoint for defining content, manipulating searches and search results, and much more. Part I: Programming with the SharePoint Object Model Chapter 2: Introduction to the SharePoint Object Model--This chapter provides an introduction to writing server-side code that interfaces directly with the SharePoint application programming interface (API). Chapter 3: Programming with Features and Solutions--Features and Solutions are powerful new concepts in this version of SharePoint that allow developers to create reusable packages that can be easily installed and deployed throughout a farm. This chapter shows you how to write code to manipulate and query Features and Solutions. Chapter 4: Working with Sites and Webs--This chapter provides an introduction to programming with the main units of hierarchy within SharePoint--webs and sites. Chapter 5: Managing SharePoint Lists--Virtually every piece of data contained within SharePoint is contained as a list item in a list. As a result, knowing how to program against lists is a vital developer skill and this chapter provides a thorough introduction to managing lists and list items. Chapter 6: Advanced List Management--This chapter builds on the previous chapter and provides additional information and samples on working with lists and list items. Chapter 7: Handling List Events--This chapter illustrates how to write code that will respond to events that take place on lists and list items. Previous versions of SharePoint limited this functionality to only document libraries, and this chapter shows you how to harness the new power of list events. Chapter 8: Working with Document Libraries and Files--Document libraries provide a powerful way to store documents, photos, slide shows, and any other type of file. This chapter shows you how to write code to query and manipulate document libraries, folders, and the files contained within them. Chapter 9: Working with Meetings--Meetings are a powerful aspect of the collaboration functionality provided by SharePoint. This chapter gives you thorough cove
