4 Why do we need a new app model

5 Challenges with WSP solutions
Full-trust solutions Performance and stability concerns Incompatible with SPOL Sandboxed solutions Clunky architecture, too limiting Requires administrative deployment and support Lifecycle management Upgrade, decommission Steep learning curve Not cloud ready

6 Benefits of the new app model
Info Workers Based on a proven and familiar app model Apps can be found in SharePoint Store or a corporate app catalog Can provision, upgrade and delete Lower learning curve – re-use your existing web technology background SharePoint Store opens up new revenue potential Developers IT Managers Apps decoupled from SharePoint – simplifies upgrades Virtually no risk to farm Corporate catalog facilitates governance controls

7 What is a SharePoint 2013 App?
Self-contained pieces of functionality that extend the capabilities of a SharePoint website Microsoft - bit.ly/MFDnI9

8 A quick look at what’s built in
Demo Built-in Apps A quick look at what’s built in

9 So, as a dev - what exactly is an app?
Can contain some declarative SharePoint artifacts External app provides SharePoint UI through IFrame External app uses CSOM or REST (OData) calls to call back No custom server-side code running on SharePoint An application whose interface is surfaced through SharePoint but code is executed elsewhere

10 How apps run CSOM/OData OAuth Other Platform SP Farm

11 What SharePoint artifacts are supported? *
Modules: pages, js libraries, images, other file-based resources Custom actions: ribbon or ECB Client web part (“app part”) List instances, columns, content types Remote event receivers * SPWeb-scoped features only When adding an app, a sub-web is created to hold these artifacts; when removing an app, sub-web is deleted

12 Creating our first SharePoint Hosted App
Demo Apps Creating our first SharePoint Hosted App

13 Apps vs solution packages
Sandboxed WSP Full trust WSP Where does server-side code run? Anywhere but farm Farm (User Code Service) Farm (w3wp.exe) Scalable Highly Limited Based on farm Who installs and removes Users Site collection admin Farm admin Supported in SP2013 Yes SharePoint Online compatible No Azure-hosting compatible Requires local farm for developers Remote deployment and debugging from Visual Studio

14 Three hosting options

15 Three hosting options

16 Three hosting options

17 Three hosting options

18 Host web and app web The host web is where app is added, removed, upgraded If app has SharePoint artifacts, a sub-web is created underneath the host web This sub-web is called the app web App web is only accessible using isolated domain name https://apps-af48d482118ab1.apps.contoso.com/{appName} Host Web App Web

19 App web Provisioned by host web Contains only web-scoped features
Initial UI is immersive, full page Set in appmanifest.xml Custom master page is assigned (app.master) Quick launch and common layout pages are unavailable Settings.aspx, viewlsts.aspx, etc. Only declarative code allowed

20 Let’s take a look inside
Demo .app package Let’s take a look inside

21 API Support (_api) Remote APIs are now a first-class citizen
Search, MMS, User Profile, BCS, et al User-centric capabilities (no Central Admin-like support) Client-side object model (CSOM) REST-based (OData) OAuth

22 CSOM

23 CSOM Same object models as before Much richer API compared to 2010
.NET Managed code JavaScript Silverlight Much richer API compared to 2010

24 OData

25 OData REST-ful API Virtually same coverage as CSOM

26 Demo Using OData

27 Bonus Demo (if time permits)
Apps Creating a Provider Hosted app
