Microsoft MultiPoint Software Development Kit (SDK)

Brief Description

Microsoft MultiPoint Software Development Kit (SDK) is a development framework that allows developers to build applications that enable up to 250 individual mouse devices to work simultaneously on one computer.

Overview

The Microsoft® MultiPoint™ SDK version 1.1 is a development framework that allows developers to build applications that enable up to 250 individual mouse devices to work simultaneously on one computer. As a developer, you can use the MultiPoint SDK to create educational applications that take advantage of collaborative learning methodologies. In schools with minimum infrastructure, MultiPoint greatly enhances the shared computing experience. Initial pilot programs conducted in India by Microsoft Research show that for certain subjects, MultiPoint can enhance learning when compared to a 1:1 computing scenario.
MultiPoint should not be confused with applications that allow multiple people to control multiple mouse devices to perform standard operations. In those cases, the system traditionally cannot identify which mouse has made which changes, and there is normally no option for controlling the permissions of the various devices. MultiPoint is a development framework that enables developers to build applications to take advantage of multiple mouse devices, including the ability to handle mouse clicks from different users independently and to assign different permissions to each mouse. For example, the mouse belonging to a teacher in a learning application might need additional permissions to control the activity).

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: Software Development Kit (SDK)

Brief Description

The Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 software development kit (SDK) contains conceptual overviews, programming tasks, samples, and references to guide you in developing solutions based on Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

Overview

The Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK contains conceptual overviews, programming tasks, and references to guide you in developing solutions based on Windows SharePoint Services as a platform. The SDK includes information about the following technologies:

  • Web Part Framework   Create, package, and deploy Web Parts on SharePoint sites.
  • Server-side object model   Work with individual lists and sites or manage an entire Windows SharePoint Services deployment.
  • Web services   Use default Web services, or create custom Web services, to interact with Windows SharePoint Services from external applications.
  • Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML)   Customize the schemas that define lists and sites, define queries for use with members of the object model or Web services, and specify parameters for use with methods in Remote Procedure Call (RPC) protocol.
  • Master Pages   Specify all of the shared elements of your site in the master page or pages, and add content page-specific elements to content pages.
  • Workflows   Create workflows that encapsulate business processes to be performed on items in Windows SharePoint Services, and attach those workflows to items in Windows SharePoint Services.
  • Custom Field Types   Create custom field types that conform to your business data. These custom field types can be based on the base field types already included in Windows SharePoint Services, and can include custom data validation, field rendering, and field property rendering and processing.
  • Information Rights Management (IRM)   Specify IRM for files located in document libraries and stored as attachments to list items. Create IRM protectors for your own custom file types.
  • Document Property Promotion and Demotion   Use the built-in XML parser to synchronize the document properties and list column data for XML documents. Create document parsers to do the same for your custom file types.
  • Search   Use the new Query object model and Query Web service to retrieve search results. Search in Windows SharePoint Services now shares the same SharePoint search technology used by Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

What's New in this SDK
Each update of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK contains significant new conceptual, procedural, and reference material to help developers create customizations and applications for Windows SharePoint Services. In this release, you can find the following new and updated content:

  • Expanded documentation of backup and restore features   This release contains greatly expanded documentation of backup and restore features, including a new top-level node, "Backing Up and Restoring." The node includes twelve articles, including "Overview of Backing Up and Restoring Data in Windows SharePoint Services," and four new How To topics.
  • Complete documentation of Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Backup   Object model reference documentation in the Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Backup namespace is complete, and code samples are provided for all critical types and members.
  • New documentation of the administrative object model   A new section, "The Administrative Object Model of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0," contains six new articles, and the "Administration" section has a new, extended code sample.
  • Revised Web Part documentation   The section that provides conceptual documentation of Web Parts has been completely restructured, and two walkthrough topics have been significantly revised and rewritten.
  • More migration support   A new section, "Selective Content Migration," contains three articles to support selective migration strategies. Additionally, additions and revisions have been made to existing topics in the "Content Migration Overview" section, and a large number of API reference topics that support migration and deployment scenarios have been completed in the SharePoint.Deployment namespace.
  • Expanded and updated reference documentation   You can find enhanced documentation of types and members in the SharePoint.Workflow and SharePoint.WorkflowActions namespaces, the People Web service, and three ActiveX controls.

Note: You can also view the latest release of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK online in the MSDN Library.
Also included in this package is the IRM Document Protector, which is a sample custom document protector for the IRM feature; an ASPX Collect Feedback workflow sample; and a compiled Help file that contains technical articles and Visual How Tos.

Overview

In addition to providing support for SQL Server 2008 database projects, this release incorporates many previously released Power Tools as well as several new features. The new features include distinct Build and Deploy phases, Static Code Analysis and improved integration with SQL CLR projects.
Database Edition no longer requires a Design Database. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to install an instance of SQL Express or SQL Server prior to using Database Edition.
SQL Server Support

  • SQL Server 2008
    • All new data types:
      • Intrinsic (date, datetime2, datetimeoffset, time)
      • Built-in SQL CLR types (geography, geometry, hierarchyid)
    • New DML
      • Merge, table parameters, …
  • SQL Server Configuration Options
    • Server option settings will be verified prior to deployment or set during deployment
      Additional 1st Class Object Type Support
    • Rules, defaults, Asymmetric keys, symmetric keys, certificates, …

Projects

  • Server Projects
    • Server objects and option settings may be implemented in a separate Server Project
    • This enables a team to define a standard a configuration for their SQL servers and reference it from their Database Projects
  • Partial projects
    • Allowing code sharing between projects by including files from a different project, where the code is included as-is from the originating project and the source code control ownership remains with the originating project
    • This enables code reuse and single sourcing while having a single deployment unit
  • Composite projects
    • References to other database projects or .dbschema files that contribute to the same deployment unit.
    • This enables the separation of development roles and responsibilities and composition of Databases using multiple projects.

Single sourcing of external artifacts

  • SQL-CLR references allow the user to create a reference to a SQL-CLR project or SQL-CLR assembly. This automatically becomes an ASSEMBLY type in the Database Project

Build and Deploy

  • The Build process now produces a separate portable schema output that is fed in to a redistributable deployment engine
  • A redistributable deployment engine. For example, to implement a setup application that deploys the Database Project.

Refactoring

  • Preservation of Intent
    • Enables the deployment of refactoring changes as intended by the user (renames are deployed as renames not as drop/add statements for example)

New Refactoring Operations

  • Wildcard Expansion
  • Move Schema
  • Fully Qualify
  • Extensibility point which enables the ability to develop and deploy custom refactoring types and targets

Schema Compare

  • Now supports comparing Projects, Databases or dbschema files in any combination. For example, Project to Project, which has not been possible until now.
  • Object Type Filtering
  • Additional ignore filtering options

T-SQL Static Code Analysis

  • Including the ability to develop and deploy custom rules

Dependency Viewer

  • View the dependency relationship between objects in your schema

Unit testing

  • Supports execution with other ADO.NET providers

Data Generation

  • Design-time enhancements
    • Smaller .dgen file
    • Support for undo/redo
    • Foreign key replacement
    • Separation of population status into new display window
  • Runtime enhancements
    • By default uses SqlBulkCopy to populate target tables
    • Capability to register different outputs for generated data – i.e. generate to Excel or to file so you can use BCP to load
    • By registering a custom output we have the capability to execute scripts at different points during data generation (i.e. before start/after completion or before/after a table

Extensibility

  • Data Generators
  • Statistical Data Distribution
  • Test Conditions
  • Static Code Analysis Rules
  • Refactoring Types
  • Refactoring Target

WCF LOB Adapter SDK SP2

Brief Description

Service Pack 2
The Microsoft© Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Line-of-Business (LOB) Adapter SDK provides for a simplified programming model on top of the WCF Channel Model by adding metadata browsing, searching and retrieving functionality, and development tools for generating and testing adapter code.

Overview

Many large enterprises have disparate systems including legacy mainframe, databases, packaged and homegrown applications that need to be integrated with each other to provide end user solutions. The technology integration becomes more complex after companies go through Mergers and Acquisitions, which are more prevalent in case of Financial and Telecom Industry verticals. Back-end systems such as SAP, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Oracle, IBM CICS, IMS, VSAM and Relational Databases are collectively known as Line-of-Business (LOB) applications. The line-of-business adapters provide legacy modernization by bridging existing back-end applications with the modern interfaces. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a unified framework for building distributed applications, including creating adapters to existing applications.
The WCF LOB Adapter SDK provides for a simplified programming model on top of WCF Channel Model to enable adapter developers in creating service-oriented interfaces to existing systems and applications. The Adapter SDK surfaces a target system adapter as a WCF Binding. The goal of the WCF LOB Adapter SDK is to facilitate uniform development of reusable metadata-oriented WCF-based adapters that enable enterprise applications, databases and messaging platforms to integrate with each other. The same adapter binding developed using Adapter SDK can be reused in multiple .NET applications including Custom .NET Applications, BizTalk Server 2006 R2/2009 , Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services. In addition, Adapter SDK provides a common metadata object model to expose target system metadata, for adapter consumers to browse, search and retrieve WCF contracts from the adapter.
The Adapter Consumer can use the adapter in an integration application similar to a typical WCF Service without having to learn a new programming model.
Some of the high-level features provided by this SDK are as follows:

  • Connection pooling for connections to the target system
  • Operation/Type metadata API and WCF contract generator
  • In-memory metadata cache
  • Adapter Code Generation Wizard
  • Tools for adapter consumers to browse/search available operations and generate WCF contract(s) with selected operations

It is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Microsoft Project Code Named “Velocity” Community Technology Preview 3 (CTP3) Documentation

Brief Description

"Velocity" is a distributed in-memory application cache platform for developing scalable, high-performance applications. "Velocity" can be used to cache any common language runtime (CLR) object and provides access through simple APIs. The key aspects of "Velocity" are distributed cache performance, scalability, and availability.

Overview

Microsoft project code named "Velocity" provides a highly scalable in-memory application cache for all kinds of data. By using cache, you can significantly improve application performance by avoiding unnecessary calls to the data source. Distributed cache enables your application to match increasing demand with increasing throughput by using a cache cluster that automatically manages the complexities of load balancing. When you use "Velocity," you can retrieve data by using keys or other identifiers, named "tags." "Velocity" supports optimistic and pessimistic concurrency models, high availability, and a variety of cache configurations. “Velocity” includes an ASP.NET session provider object that enables you to store ASP.NET session objects in the distributed cache without having to write to databases, which increases the performance and scalability of ASP.NET applications.
For community technology preview 3 (CTP3), Microsoft project code named "Velocity" offers several enhancements and a new API. The enhancements include a cache notifications feature, performance improvements, security enhancements, and new cluster management options. There are also updates to the installation program. Perhaps the most material change for the "Velocity" administrator is that your options for editing the cluster configuration settings have been decoupled from your options for storing the cluster configuration settings. For more information, see the What’s New for CTP3 topic in the product documentation.

Windows XP Security Guide

Brief Description

This guide provides detailed technical information for customers who are interested in hardening deployments of Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) on desktop and laptop client computers in different types of environments.

Overview

The Windows XP Security Guide has been updated to provide specific recommendations about how to harden computers that run Windows XP with SP2 in three distinct environments:

  • Enterprise Client (EC). Client computers in this environment are located in an Active Directory directory service domain.
  • Stand-Alone (SA). Client computers in this environment are not members of an Active Directory domain.
  • Specialized Security - Limited Functionality (SSLF). Client computers in this environment are subject to extraordinary security concerns. These concerns are so great that a significant loss of functionality and manageability is acceptable.

Information about the security features in SP2 was included as an appendix to the previous version of this guide. This information has now been integrated throughout the guide, and thoroughly tested templates for Windows Firewall security settings (Windows Firewall replaced the Internet Connection Firewall in SP2) are provided. This guide also includes information about closing ports, Remote Procedure Call (RPC) communications, memory protection, e-mail handling, Web download controls, spyware controls, and much more.
This guide is primarily intended for consultants, security specialists, systems architects, and IT planners who plan application or infrastructure development and the deployment of Windows XP workstations in an enterprise environment. It is not intended for home users, but for individuals whose job roles include the following:

  • Systems architects and planners who are responsible for driving the architecture efforts for the workstations in their organizations.
  • IT security specialists who are focused on providing security across platforms within an organization.
  • Business analysts and business decision makers (BDMs) who have critical business objectives and requirements that need IT desktop or laptop support.
  • Consultants from both Microsoft Services and partners who need knowledge-transfer tools for enterprise customers and partners.

Note: On February 18, 2009, an updated version of the Windows XP Security Compliance Management Toolkit was released as part of the Security Compliance Management Toolkit Series. Please go to the Security Compliance Management Toolkit Series location on the Microsoft Download Center to get the Windows XP Security Compliance Management Toolkit.

Windows Vista Security Guide

Brief Description

The Windows Vista Security Guide provides recommendations and tools to further harden Windows Vista. Use the GPOAccelerator tool in this Solution Accelerator to efficiently establish the Enterprise Client (EC) environment or the Specialized Security – Limited Functionality (SSLF) environment.

Overview

The Windows Vista Security Guide provides guidance and tools to further protect Windows Vista against real-live threats such as malware and information theft. This solution accelerator recommends the Enterprise Client (EC) configuration for organizations of all types. Only in extreme security situations does the guide recommend the Specialized Security – Limited Functionality (SSLF) configuration, which considerably limits client computer functionality.
Note: On February 18, 2009, an updated version of the Windows Vista Security Guide was released as part of the Security Compliance Management Toolkit Series. Please go to the Security Compliance Management Toolkit Series location on the Microsoft Download Center to get the Windows Vista Security Compliance Management Toolkit.
