SharePoint Solution Development

Developing SharePoint solution files (WSP files) is a tedious task. Fortunately, many tools can help you a long way towards automating SharePoint solution file creation.

In Beginning SharePoint Development, I’ll show you how to build these solution files from scratch. This is important because your automatic tools may not fulfill your requirements in some cases.

I’ll show you how to build the DDF file used in WSP file creation, how to use makecab.exe to create the WSP file, how to build the solution manifest file (manifest.xml), and of course, how to install and deploy your solution to your SharePoint farm.

Finally, I’ll show you how you can use WSPBuilder to automate these tasks so that your every day SharePoint solution development is as simple as a few clicks of the mouse.

You can read the entire Beginning SharePoint Development issue, including more than three hours of video tutorials and demonstrations for just $14.95.
