SharePoint tricks and tips for end-users, power-users, and other non-IT professionals who utilize SharePoint whether they like it or not Wednesday, May 29, Access Apps in SharePoint - Part 2 I initially became interested in Access apps and Access Services because I heard it was the replacement for electronic forms formerly created in InfoPath for SharePoint. This is part 2 of my blog series on Access Apps in SharePoint
Musings Earlier this week I watched a dialog progress between a few people on a email distribution list that I'm on where they mused about which client-side friendly API they prefer in SharePoint It got me thinking that I had never posted my thoughts although I get this question quite a bit.
I'll start with quick overview of the two: The CSOM is not a complete replacement for the server side object model. In SharePoint it was greatly improved as it got additions for working with search, BCS, taxonomies, workflows and user profiles to name just a few. The CSOM is available in managed form for.
For those of you keeping score, this is also an OData interface to SharePoint Unfortunately companies created very different implementation of RESTful services so a bunch got together to define an agreed upon protocol called the Open Data Protocolalso known as OData.
The OData spec defines the data formats returned as well as the specific vocabularies used to interact with OData services.
Each vendor then implemented it on their own technology stack. Unfortunately the SharePoint implementation does not include everything the spec states, but it's pretty close.
By the way, if you're looking for some great training on this subject, check out Rob Windsor's epic 6. For instance, if I wanted to create a list with a few custom fields, I could do that in one round trip to the server if using CSOM, but with REST it would be 1 call for the creation of the list and n calls for each field I want to create.
So there is a bit more work to working with REST.
Now, keep in mind that before I pitch my preference in the rest of this post, I strongly believe there is no right or wrong answer. I guess there is one wrong answer: Fact is just like everything else in SharePoint, we've got multiple ways to do the same thing and we can choose what we like best for our situation.
Two big cases come to mind here but there are others: Let me enumerate a few things: Client side my favorites:Groove Music (formerly Xbox Music and Zune Music, and also known as Microsoft Groove and Groove Music Pass) was a music player software application and digital music streaming service developed by Microsoft that allowed music to be played back from OneDrive and from storage media, and allowed music streaming through subscription or purchase through the Windows Store.
