Organizing Sharepoint Solution

  Asked By: Guy    Date: Apr 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 806

I am trying to set up a Sharepoint project where different functionalities are
developerd by team members. We will be using Visual Studio for most of the
development and maybe sharepoint designer. So the project needs to be in Team
foundation. The application has all the different components site pages,
webparts, appllication pages, lists etc in this project.

So I would need to create the structure of this project. What is the best
practice to do this ? Is it bettetr to break it in to different solution(wsp)
or have it as one solution.

What has been your experience with this ? What tool to use to create this
different projects ? With Stsdev it allows you to create specific type of
projects like webpart project, application page project but if you have to do
all what tool and what type of project will be the best to create the projects,
what stucture etc. I would like to hear your suggestion.

Normally when I have worked on a SharePoint development project  with a team
we've divided the project up into manageable components  (individual webparts,
features, site  definitions, etc.) and used a centralized source code repository.
I have rarely created full application  pages for a project, instead functioning
on building components that can be assembled into the finished product. The
team usually doesn't assemble all the components into Solution packages until we
are in the QA testing phase at the end of the project. As far as tools are
concerned, I tend to build almost everything out from a class library project.
Tools like STSDEV and WSP builder are excellent, but I usually prefer to start
from scratch and build my own. I do have a set  of code snips and batch files
that I use regularly, but that's about all.
