Visual Studio 2010 Tools for SharePoint Announced at TechEd EMEA Developers 2008


I’m here at TechEd EMEA in Barcelona, Spain and Jason Zander (General Manager for Visual Studio) has just finished presenting the keynote. In the keynote he announced and did a demo of the Visual Studio 2010 tools for SharePoint. Here’s a quick summary of the new tooling for SharePoint that he showed:




  • Server Explorer for SharePoint viewing Lists and other artifacts in SharePoint directly inside of Visual Studio


  • Windows SharePoint Services Project (WSP file) Import to create a new solution


  • Added a new web part project item and showed the Visual web part designer which loads a user control as a web part for SharePoint


  • Showed adding an event receiver for SharePoint and using the wizard to choose the event receiver and to just create a source file with that event receiver.


  • Added an ASPX workflow initiation form to a workflow project and showed how this workflow initiation form has designer capability


  • Showed the packaging explorer and the packaging editor which lets you structure the SharePoint features and WSP file that is created

    Hello Dragon,

    No, the current CTP unfortunately does not include the SharePoint tools that were just announced today. We’ll be sure to keep working on this.

    Cheers,

    I’ve made some comments based on your previous posts around feedback on VSeWSS which I thought are relevant to this.

    Cheers,
