SharePoint help

I was advised by a Microsoft speaker at a local .Net conference that
"SharePoint" had a lot to offer for asp.net developers. I've spent a few
hours hunting down links on Sharepoint Services in Server2003 and also
SharePoint Portal Server Product. Whenever I try to learn the details of
what the SharePoint services have to offer for asp.net developers all roads
lead to a video, recorded in 2003 that has to do with "asp.net" and
sharepoint.

One slide is given with some vague points on sharepoint and the rest of the
90 minute video is about developing web parts in VS 2003.

Is they any useful information on what we can use these services for? Any
docs? Anywhere?

Sharepoint 2003 is old news.
It has been replaced by Sharepoint 2007.

Take a look at the Sharepoint info here :

http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint/overview.mspx

There's 2 different Sharepoint products :
Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services.

There's a specialized IDE to help create apps for Sharepoint : SharePoint Designer 2007

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sh...487631033.aspx

You can download a free trial at that page.

SharePoint meet business needs like managing content, mainly documents,
and business workflow processes, simplifying how people find and share information.

Hi Gary,

I would suggest starting your looking at WSS books
http://www.asaris.de/sites/walsh/Lis...V%20Books.aspx

There are a number of newsgroups dedicated to SharePoint
microsoft.*public.*sharepoint.*

Hope it helps

It looks like an Office product that would compete with asp.net and I'm
guessing that SharePoint Server 2007 would be a relatively expensive product
to license for a small company. I see there are add-ins for Visual Studio
2005 for SharePoint. I am wondering if using the SharePoint Services in
asp.net applications could be useful without licensing the Server.

re:

Hi, GaryDean.

I don't see ASP.NET and Office SharePoint Server as competitors.

Office SharePoint Server builds on ASP.NET's capabilities to provide valued-added features.

Office SharePoint Server has nothing to offer a developer who's working on a web front end
to a company database, like for building an online catalog/ecommerce web application.

Office SharePoint Server, basically, enables document-sharing.
It could also provide a web app which lets employees access vital statistics about their company.

As Masudur explained : don't forget to learn about "Business data catalog".

re:
!I am wondering if using the SharePoint Services in
!asp.net applications could be useful without licensing the Server

There's a lot of "Web Part" functionality which you can use
in ASP.NET without licensing the Office SharePoint Server.

You'll have to weigh what the development cost for those would be, compared to
Office SharePoint Server's cost, which has a lot of business funcionality built-in.
