Comparing Data Accessing Techonlogies In SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 allows 4 ways of accessing SharePoint Data. They are:
2. Server OM
3. Client OM

The table below summarizes pros and cons of these 4 methods:
  • Entity-based programming
  • Strongly typed
  • Supports joins and projections
  • Good tools support and IntelliSense
  • Server-side only
  • New API, so new skills required
  • Pre-processing of list structure required, so changing list could break application
Server OM
  • Familiar API
  • Works with more than just list data
  • Strongly Typed
  • Server Side Only
Client OM
  • Works off the server
  • Easier than web services API
  • Works in Silverlight, JavaScript and .NET
  • More than just list data
  • New API
  • Weakly Typed
  • Standards-based
  • URL-based commands
  • Strongly typed
  • Only works with lists and Excel

Start SharePoint Workflows with Intiation Parameters Programatically

To start the SharePoint workflows programatically by passing the initiation parameters following code can be used:
static void Main(string[] args) 
    using (SPSite spSite = new SPSite("http://localhost")) 
        using (SPWeb spWeb = spSite.RootWeb) 
            SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssociation = spWeb.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName("WorkflowDemo",CultureInfo.InvariantCulture); 
            if (workflowAssociation != null) 
                SPWorkflow siteWorkflow = spSite.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(spSite, workflowAssociation, "<Data><CompanyID>zzz</CompanyID></Data>", SPWorkflowRunOptions.Asynchronous);

Uploading a Document using Power Shell Script

To upload a single document to a document library use the following PowerShell script. This is very helpful if we want to automate deployment of files during deployment of code.
The function accepts three parameters:
1. url points to url of the sharepoint site.
2. folder points to Document Library Name
3. Document points to the Path of the file.

function Upload-SPDocument([string]$url, [string]$Folder, [string]$Document) 
        $SPSite = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($url) 
        $OpenWeb = $SPSite.OpenWeb() 
        $DocumentName = Split-Path $Document -Leaf 
        $GetFolder = $OpenWeb.GetFolder($Folder) 
        [void]$GetFolder.Files.Add("$Folder/$DocumentName",$((gci $Document).OpenRead()),"")

Deleting Multiple Document Sets with PowerShell Script in SharePoint 2010

We have a test document library containing around 30000 Document Sets. We wanted to delete all the docsets but it is very time consuming to delete from UI or using the Object Model. This can be achieved using the following Power Shell Script. If you want to use this Script just change the first three parameters in the script:
$webUrl = "http://testsite"
$libraryName = "DemoDocSets"
$queryLimit = 100
$docsetContentTypeName = "Document Set"
Write-Host -f Yellow "Opening Site and Document Library"
$web = Get-SPWeb $webUrl
$documentsLib = $web.Lists[$libraryName]
Write-Host -f Yellow "Done"
### Load SharePoint assemblies
Write-Host -f Yellow  "Loading SharePoint assemblies"
Add-PSSnapIn Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell

# get 1000 document sets at a time
$query = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPQuery
$query.RowLimit = $queryLimit
$query.ViewAttributes = "Scope=`"Recursive`"";
$query.Query = "<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='ContentType'/><Value Type='Text'>" + $docsetContentTypeName + "</Value></Eq></Where>"

$queryResults = $documentsLib.GetItems($query)
$numDocsets = $queryResults.Count

while($numDocsets -gt 0)
    Write-Host -f Yellow "Deleting $numDocsets docsets"
    for($i=0; $i -lt $numDocsets; $i++)
    $queryResults = $documentsLib.GetItems($query)
    $numDocsets = $queryResults.Count
Write-Host -f Green "Done deleting all docsets"
