Release Notes

  • This release is simply a code sample with before/after versions which may help developers beginning to work with AJAX in their SharePoint apps. To use the Feature Upgrade Kit, please download the current recommended release **

From the readme:

These files accompany a blog article of mine called 'Migrating existing applications to jQuery/AJAX', and provide a guide on the types of changes required when moving an app to AJAX. Some notes you might want to be aware of:

- The 'live' version of the SPFeatureUpgradeKit on Codeplex does not use AJAX. This is because the whole AJAX-ifying process was really just a learning exercise for me, and for this particular app AJAX doesn't actually add tons of value (but was a great sample to AJAX-ify nonetheless).
- Consequently the AJAX code isn't really production-ready. Some examples of things I'd change include:
- use of jQuery templates rather than HTML hardcoded in C# (N.B. jQuery templates were not released at time of work)
- some refactoring of HTTP handler/jQuery would be nice

If you have any questions on the sample, please leave a comment on my blog and I'll try to help.
