Question on config file modifications

Nov 4, 2008 at 10:38 PM
Great project!
I just have some questions on how it works in compared to SharPoint config files. I noticed that the only config modification you made is to the ScriptResource. However, when preparing SharePoint for ASP.Net ajax extentions 1.0 Microsoft recommended to make a bunch of changes to the web.config file per this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb861898.aspx . Now, I know that was for the 1.0 extensions and they are incorporated into the 3.5 framework. So, my question is do you know if you need to make similar config changes for 3.5 and SharePoint? According to some other blogs people make it seem necessary: http://www.zimmergren.net/archive/2008/09/22/how-to-get-up-and-running-with-net-3-5-in-your-sharepoint-environment.aspx . But, since I didn't see these changes in this framework I was wondering if you know if they are needed or not? Or, maybe you just weren't using all the parts from the config, thus you didn't add them all in. I am just curious of your thoughts on making all these config changes based on your knowledge from building this toolkit.
Thanks,

Hi Greg

Since I use a purist AJAX approach, there's no need to register any other changes in web.config-- only the script resource handler is needed. 

I don't use the update panel or any funny business like that-- only the Microsoft AJAX script library. 

For web services, you can include a custom web.config for your service directory. 

How are you using the toolkit? I'd love to hear your use cases.

Hey Daniel,
I am not using the toolkit yet for a client, so I don't have any real use cases for you. I am preparing for a presentation at my local Code Camp on ajax and SharePoint so I am definetly going to bring up this project. Plus, I am going to use it in the future now that I have had a chance to play around with it a little.
Thanks,
Greg
