Using the Microsoft Sync Framework with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi LeonM,

     

    Unfortunately we do not have such a sample at the moment, however I can describe how you would build such a scenario:

     

    To construct such a scenario you would need to build two providers -

     

    One provider would communicate with SharePoint (i.e. via SharePoint's web service API) and would work with lists. The other would communicate with your database (perhaps via ADO.NET) in terms of tables / rows. Each provider would be responsible for transforming between the data format of their store and some common in-memory format you use for data interchange between the providers.

     

    Hope that helps,

    Neil

  • Hi Joshua,

     

    It is possible to build sync provider for share point. The sync framework helps you to do that. One way to start is to check the NTFS Sample provider that ships with the framework SDK.

     

    It would be helpful if you can give us more details on the scenario.

     

    Thanks

    I would like to see an example of a Sync provider for a SharePoint list. For example for syncing a SharePoint list with a database table.

  • hi,

    @Denis one way sync between file system and Sharepoint doc library can be done. using the way files are synced between two folders, u can use file system as source and document library as destination. Then u alter the create, update, delete operations on the destination to do respective operation in the document library. when doing one way sync you dont need to check the changes in the document library.

  • Denis,

    I'm currently using SyncToy 2.1 and syncing with Sharepoint through DavWWWRoot capability... so basically you put your source file system on the left in SyncToy and the UNC path to the sharepoint document list in the right and specify contibute as the sync operation... Then you can just run the sync whenever you want and have the changes pushed to sharepoint..  Not sure how well it would scale... thats what I'm working out now.
