Development Steps

Test on VM

  • 1- Create the site
  • 2- Deploy the existing Sharepoint solution to the new site.
  • 3- 'Get' the project from the PVCS
  • 4- Do the changes, build
  • 5- Copy the new .aspx page (if there is any change in this page) to the existing .aspx page of the solution package in Sharepoint -> e.g. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\CanTire.ContinuingEducation
  • 6- Drag and drop the created .dll file from the /bin to the GAC -> (C:\Windows\Assembly)
  • 7- Restart IIS from local admin account
  • 8- In order to Debug, click on Debug -> Attach to process -> w3wp.exe -> Run the application on IE -> the breakpoints will be hi
  • 9- After making sure the result is successful, Change the Solution Package (wsp):
Note that not all of these steps might be necessary, it depends on the case and errors.
1. Deactive the feature
Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\
Stsadm.exe -o deactivatefeature -filename CanTire.ContinuingEducation\feature.xml -force -ur http://servername/
2.Uninstall the feature
stsadm -o uninstallfeature -filename
3.Retract Solution
stsadm -o retractsolution
4. Add the solution
stsadm -o addsolution -filename {WSPFILENAME}
5. Deploy the solution
First, try deploying through Central Admin
stsadm -o deploysolution -name {WSPFILENAME} -url {SITEURL}
6. Install the feature
stsadm -o installfeature -filename {FeatureFolder}\feature.xml
7. Activate the feature
stsadm -o activatefeature -id {FEATUREID} -url {SITEURL} -force

Apply the Solution Package to the Dev environment

  • Log in to the dev server -> ajcpd-mossweb01
This is where we need to delete the existing solution if any and then through the command line, we can add the solution again, redeploy, install the feature....
  1. Retract the existing solution through Central Admin.
  2. Remove the solution.
  3. Make sure the feature is uninstalled as well (just running the stsadm - o uninstallfeature CanTire.ContinuingEducation\feature.xml will do the job)
  4. Copy the new .wsp file and add the solution again (-o addsolution)
  5. Run the application on http://apps-devcantire.ctc/ContinuingEducation/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx
  6. To check the email body, go to Application Configuration and change all the email field to yours, also enter your name as the manager in the application form; the result would be sent to you.
