SharePoint Portal Server 2003 APIs Deprecated in Office SharePoint Server 2007

SharePoint 2007

All object model changes in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 have been made with an emphasis on a high level of backward-compatibility with Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003. So even though you may encounter a completely refactored area of the object model, such as Areas, your code should still continue to work. You should be aware, however, that your earlier code, although functional, may not perform in the way you expect in the new object-model hierarchy.

This topic lists the APIs that are deprecated in Office SharePoint Server 2007 either because of the introduction of a new feature or enhancements in an existing feature.

When you upgrade or write new applications that use the deprecated classes or members, use the new classes or members instead.

NoteNote:

This list is not complete and is a work in progress.

Portal Site creation APIs

  • PortalSiteCollection.Create()

  • PortalSiteCollection.Delete()

The SharePoint Portal Server 2003 portal creation object model is deprecated in Office SharePoint Server 2007. In Office SharePoint Server 2007, portal sites use the same provisioning process as Windows SharePoint Services sites. Therefore, you must update any scripts that create portals sites to use the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site creation APIs. If you require a new vServer (Web application), use the Windows SharePoint Services CreateWebApplication API before creating the site.

Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.Topology.Server.IsJobServer

This Boolean property is deprecated in Office SharePoint Server 2007 because job server is not a valid role in Office SharePoint Server 2007.
