Last week one of my colleague took a session for all of us to explain the Client Object Model in SharePoint 2010, so i thought to share the knowledge via this blog article.
What is Client Object Model (COM):
Key Points one should know about the COM:
There are limitations to what can be done client side compared to server side, say for example you cannot access the FARM level properties, you can get/set only the properties at the web application level.
We cannot elevate the privilege in COM as we can do in server object model.
No SharePoint installation is required in the development machine.Only the Client DLL’s are required.
No Compilation required as required on the server side, NO IISRESET required.
Path to get DLL’s: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\ISAPI
