Step 1: Select the Application Type

Iron Speed Designer generates these application types:

Web: A web application optimized for desktop screens.

Mobile: Native mobile applications that can be deployed to the Apple iOS and Google Android platforms either directly or via the Apple Store or Google Play as well as Web pages optimized for mobile devices such as smartphones.

RESTful API: Generates a data access layer using the RESTful API to connect to a data provider over the Internet. See Part VIII, RESTful API Aplications.

Microsoft SharePoint: Generates an application which can contain Web and Mobile pages and can be deployed to a Sharepoint 2010 or 2007 server.

Microsoft SharePoint application restrictions

Microsoft SharePoint applications have these restrictions:

Running SharePoint applications in non-SharePoint environments

To run applications built for Microsoft SharePoint in a non-Sharepoint environment, such as in Iron Speed Designer’s Live Preview, Microsoft.SharePoint.dll must be installed in your machine’s Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

You can install the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll using one of these options.

Option #1:  Copy it from an existing Microsoft SharePoint Server.

Microsoft recommends copying the Microsoft.SharePoint.DLL from a folder on the remote computer.  The DLL is typically located in:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\ISAPI

… on any Windows Server system that has either Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) installed.  First copy the SharePoint DLL to the local machine in a temporary folder, and then from command prompt, enter:

gacutil /i Microsoft.SharePoint.DLL

See: How to install an Assembly into Global Assembly Cache:

Option #2:  Download and install Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0.

WSS can be installed on any Windows Server operating system, but not on any Windows desktop operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Option #3:  Install Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS). 

MOSS can be purchased and installed on any Windows Server operating system.
