Integration of ASP.NET MVC with Sharepoint 2013. Part 2: Interaction with SharePoint

1 year, 10 months ago
In the previous article Integration of ASP.NET MVC with Sharepoint 2013. Part 1: High-Trusted provider-hosted APP was sorted how to configure SharePoint 2013 for SharePoint Apps (now Microsoft calls this SharePoint Add-in) and to make basic integration of the ASP.NET MVC application with provider-hosted APP. I will show in this article how we implemented: search of the SharePoint Site elements in the MVC application, transfer of elements from SharePoint Site, App-parts and localization of the SharePoint elements.

Unfinished construction in software development: about problems of management of requirements

2 years ago
Than unfinished construction in development threatens and what difficulties it is necessary to face on this way? As the business analyst of the company who 15 years are engaged in development and support of one product (EDMS), I has decided to share the thoughts and examples from practice. Perspective of management of requirements in any software products with the long period of implementation – topical issue for analysts, project managers and owners of products. And, perhaps, for direct partners and customers of Docsvision expecting output of the new versions and interested in emergence of new functionality.

Rake on which you would not like to step in the project

2 years, 1 month ago
Good afternoon, my name is Sergey and I am the head of the product direction in the Doksvizhn company. During operating time in the field of automation of electronic document management I happened to participate in tens of projects of implementation, and in different roles (from the engineer to the head of project office), from the different parties (the customer, the representative of the company implementer, vendor) and with different systems (Docsvision and Directum). I want to share the project experience with you.

Knowing process and having typed a lot of cones, I make in article several recommendations which will allow to approach the project of implementation of EDMS (as well as any IT system) prepared and more smoothly to implement it. My colleague already gave advice to the customer's IT specialists responsible for implementation. I will look at a question from a different angle and I will share a number of nuances which it should be taken into account the companies integrators. Especially, if the first project of implementation is necessary to you. I hope, article will be useful though it is all the same necessary to step on many "rake" sometimes independently, and ideal recipes in project practice do not exist.

10 rules of good form at the description of bugs

2 years, 1 month ago
Hello, my name is Natalya, I am the test engineer of the Docsvision company.
Sometimes, when I view the errors written by newcomers (and sometimes and old) testers, the hand mechanically reaches for the person. Only one thought arises in the head:



"What? What have I now read?"

On the Internet there is a lot of information THAT shall be present in bug contango. And I have decided to share with you the thoughts HOW it is necessary to write bug contango that it was clear about what you write.
First of all, I wrote it for test engineers and technical support engineers who report us the bugs sent by customers. Also my article can help to create the description of the arisen problem at the address of the user to technical support: the correct description allows to process quicker without additional questions incident.
In general it can be useful for all members of team of software development who fix the communication in bagtrekingovy system to esteem her.

Applications in electronic document management system. Part 2: Application components – the Document. Logical structure

2 years, 2 months ago
Despite the seeming evidence of the statement "the main application component on the basis of EDMS — the document, and that it automates – its "turn", in practice appears that under the document in applications the most different entities can mean. It depends on document type and character of its "turn", i.e. life cycle of processing. Docsvision provides mechanisms for implementation of such objects. It is connected by what even for the EDMS most standard applications (for example, for automation of problems of classical office-work) we needed to model the document which is described by very difficult data structure and difficult life cycle in system. Opportunity to model such difficult entities as the document in office-work also has allowed us to gain sufficient universality in implementation of applications for document handling of the different nature. Holding the observations made in the previous article in the head, we will try to describe model of entity which we call the word "document".

Clients of EDMS: web vs native vs hybrid

2 years, 2 months ago
Among developers of the B2C and B2B mobile applications of segments merits and demerits of alternative approaches to architecture of the client application are widely discussed – to do it on HTML, native or hybrid (the simple native client opening the built-in browser for data exchange with the server).
One of the first articles of Microsoft on this subject has been published on MSDN in 2012 and has not lost the relevance still (Choosing between a web and native experience). In this article we will consider use of hybrid option of mobile application for EDMS.

Setting of tasks and calculation of labor costs on development of documentation in the IT company

2 years, 2 months ago
The question of how to set tasks and to evaluate labor costs of technical writers, rises almost at each webinar, the conference and meeting devoted to documentation. In what complexity? Why, unlike assessment of time spent by programmers, testers and other staff of department of development, labor costs of documentors constantly cause discussions?
I will try to explain and show how it is possible to avoid problems in this question, using task management system (as it works — I will show on the example of the Actionspace system used by us). Technical writer, Lena Tolmacheva.

Applications in electronic document management system. Part 1: key principles, components and opportunities

2 years, 6 months ago
I will begin with this post small cycle of articles devoted different to aspects of applications programming in electronic document management system. Today more and more or less powerful and modern the set of components and tools for their implementation contain SED/ESM platform, and the applications created on the basis of platform allow to automate all variety of worker processes of the client. I will tell about Docsvision platform application model, about components and development tools (setup) of these applications, about what problems arose at us at implementation of tools for their development, and about for what we wait further. It will be interesting not only that who densely works with Docsvision, but also will allow to gather experience by that who should implement or develop the corporate EDMS.

Implementation of technology of uniform source of DITA in the company software developer

2 years, 7 months ago
Hello! My name is Elena Tolmacheva. In the Doksvizhn company I am engaged in development of the user documentation.

Recently for any creation of operation manuals on complex program systems more and more popular is use of the technology of uniform source assuming reuse in the developed set of documents of any texts or images. Not so long ago we began to apply this technology to development of helps and the printing documents "Doksvizhn", and I want to share in this article the got experience.
