Sample Outline for Upgrade Actions

Windows SharePoint Services 3

This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies. This page may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

The following sample outline shows a possible structure for the kinds of actions that you may need to implement when upgrading to the new version of Windows SharePoint Services.

The outline illustrates the kind of object model that may be required in the case of upgrading a portal application. Each module (.cs or .vb file) in the upgrade application can define actions that must be performed with respect to a specific part of the SharePoint installation. Each module can define a base action class, as well as any number of other classes that inherit from the base class to complete specific actions.
