Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Raleigh on Nov. 7th

There are quite a few SharePoint heavy-hitters attending (Michael Gannotti, Dan Lewis, and Joshua Carlisle to name a few), so go register today - seats are filling fast! Cheers, Adam ......

Migrating SharePoint Content to Oracle UCM #2
So we landed on a solution. It's not ideal by any stretch, but it does accomplish the purposes we set out to meet, and it does give us a (small) step in the right direction in terms of moving the client to using Oracle UCM as the sole company-wide content repository. To recap, here's the skinny on what we're facing: There is a mandate in the company to move all "content" to Oracle UCM (a content unification measure) There is a significant amount of content in SharePoint (in the form of lists) that ......

wsdl.exe - Unable to import binding from namespace
When trying to generate an ASP.NET proxy class from a physical wsdl on your local file system, you're probably doing something like this: wsdl.exe MySevice.wsdl /o:Proxy.cs /l:CS You'd expect a file named Proxy.cs to get created in C# for you. You'd be right, except if you're attempting to generate proxy for a service that uses complex types. If that is the case, you'll get an error that looks a lot like this: Error: Unable to import binding 'MyBinding' from namespace ' ......

Oh Where, Oh Where Did My Team Collaboration List Templates Go?
I stood up a standard publishing site on a vanilla MOSS instance for some custom workflow development I'm doing. I went to make a list from the Announcement List template (the one that comes OOB), and found that most of the list and library templates that I was accustomed to seeing weren't there at all. It turns out that by default, the OOB Publishing site definition does not activate the Team Collaboration Lists feature. Go to Site Features and activate it for your publishing site, and they will ......

Woohoo! Just got my Google Wave Account!

Sorry, already promised out all of my 8 invites, so no begging :)

I agree with my buddy Rob when he says, "I hope that my dreams are not crushed when I actually start to get to use it."

I can't wait to see what kinds of neat things I can do with it!  More to come, as I crash into Google Wave...

Migrating SharePoint Content to Oracle UCM
I’ve got an interesting challenge a client has asked me help with. We are attempting to move items from multiple custom SharePoint lists to Oracle UCM and continue to manage/review/approve the data through the SharePoint interface. Moving this list content to OUCM is part of a bigger strategy to centralize all of the “business truth” (content) to OUCM, while keeping SharePoint for collaboration. There are a lot of things to consider, and lots of risks to document. I'm just now getting to documenting ......

Design Patterns That Get Implemented in Real Life
I think that the Gang of Four should consider my design pattern recommendations for inclusion in their codified list. And while I have seen ALL of these patterns shipped to production in real life, it doesn't mean that these are by any means the only ones that scream for inclusion. Anyone got any others? The Duct Tape Pattern Its versatility is unmatched – any two bits of code from any two systems can co-operate with the use of this simple pattern. Need a piece of data from an XML document to display ......
