SPBP – My presentation (Part 1)

Reinvigorate the Business Client – Extend your OBA over your Imagination As I've promised, I'm starting to give a short description about my presentation, and will upload the demos. Let's start with the presentation. On Tuesday afternoon I was showing to my audience, what does OBA mean, how can Office System and several LOB Systems be integrated in a transparent way, and what are best practices during OBA building. Yes, this process is a building process, because you can play with the OBA components as they would be LEGO blocks… First of all, let's see the Line-of-Business (LOB) Systems. A … Continue reading SPBP – My presentation (Part 1)

SPBP Conference – Sessions

Well, let's see the sessions I've attended on the SPBP Conference. You have to know that it was a really big and well-organized conference: with more than 350 participants (IT Pros, developers, CIOs, project managers, architects, information workers), 35 speakers with almost 80 sessions, and a lot of sponsors/exhibitors.

OBACT Appsettings

When you install the OBA Composition Toolkit, maybe you have to face the provisioning problem described a few days ago. One more detail about this issue: during OBACT installation these tags will be inserted into the web.config file of SharePoint Server Central Administration's web application: <add key="OBAAdministration" value="http://spsdemo:21212/CompositionServer/Administration.asmx" /> <add key="OBACompositionInstallerPath" value="C:\Program Files\CompOBARefToolkit\" /> If the last one is missing, the proper database field will be empty, so the provisioning is failed.

Patrick Tisseghem

I don't know what to say. Patrick Tisseghem, SharePoint MVP passed suddenly away on Wednesday. He was one of the greatest masters in the SharePoint world. I can't hardly believe he's no more with us. All my sympathy for his family and friends.

OBA Composition Toolkit – Provisioning error in your custom components

OK, you've decided to use OBA Composition Toolkit v2 – but how to start? First of all, you can download it with several documents. One of them is the Setup Guide, which describes the system requirements both of server and client side. If you follow these steps, and install the component samples (reference components) as well, you can start your OBA Composition Toolkit (OBACT) immediately. Ok, this is pretty good, but what to do if you want to create your own components? Of course, you can do that as well, but be aware, because you have to pay attention to … Continue reading OBA Composition Toolkit – Provisioning error in your custom components
