SharePoint 2010: Sandboxed Solutions

One of the biggest problems with SharePoint 2007 development is that all of its solutions run as full trust… SharePoint Pro Connections just published an article I wrote which discusses one of the new features in SharePoint 2010, Sandboxed Solutions. Sandboxed solutions enable you to run solutions in SharePoint in a security sandbox. This allows administrators to trust the code that developers write. And it allows developers to more rapidly develop and deploy solutions without fear of taking down the entire farm. Sandboxed solutions are the default way to create SharePoint business applications for SharePoint on premise and SharePoint Online.

    Hi Paul,

    Just read your article at…/ee335711.aspx regarding monitoring sandboxed infopath solutions.

    You mention you can break out of the sandbox by reading/writing an external list.  An example would be really useful.

    Searching for this sort of thing brings up alot of other stuff due to using infopath as the forms technology for external lists.

    I am interested in having an external list as a secondary data source of a non-external list infopath form template where that template is deployed as a sandboxed solution.
