Speed up development and testing

Following tips & tricks can be useful in speeding up the development process when customizing SharePoint 2007:

  • Recycle the application pool instead of making an iisreset. Works in most cases. Download tool/application.
  • Adding the right schema definitions when working with the different xml-files. They are located under [12]\template\xml and are added to the xml-file by setting the Schema attribute of the xml-file which you are editing, and thereafter selecting the same schema in th xmlns attribute.

If you just want to test ot some simple code - maybe on a server without Visual Studio installed - try the Snippet Compiler tool. A "mini visual studio" to write and test code snippets "on the fly".
