If you've ever been involved with MCMS 2002, you will know the authors of this title, and the great work they do for the Content Management Server community. They are either Microsoft employees or MVPs and are recognised experts in CMS development.

This book is next in line after the title, "Building Websites with Microsoft Content Management Server". It delves deep into the more advanced development topics on the MCMS platform. To help you understand the topics and areas presented, there is an abundance of code which is essential. The best thing about the code examples is that they are not throw away HelloWorld demonstrations, but real life applications and uses of functionality that you will more than likely adapt to use in your own implementation. That's where the experience of the authors shines through.

As well as pure MCMS content, there are also a number of chapters dedicated to explaining and demonstrating Sharepoint integration points and searching (a major feature lacking from MCMS). For many company intranets, MCMS or Sharepoint are not enough on their own and must be combined to provide a complete solution. This book goes some way towards making the combination less painful.

My only (selfish) criticism of this book is the timing of its release. It would have been an awesome training tool when I was getting into MCMS development!! That aside, the examples given are still very relevant for development today and will offer even the seasoned developer new tricks, give them a deeper understanding of the APIs, and provoke new ideas and thoughts on what can be achieved. Chapters on RSS enabling your sites and integrating Infopath forms to web services in MCMS are two areas that probably wouldn't have been covered a few years ago, but are now hot topics.

Format: Paperback
This book offers a hands-on approach to learning MCMS topics that mimic real world problems. While most books and manuals focus on the ideal or typical scenario, this book explores how to deal with the tough scenarios where the product shortcomings need to be overcome by creative and innovative solutions. Definitive answers are provided to many of the tough questions that every developer asks when delving deep into MCMS. Working code samples make up a significant portion of the book and are extremely valuable in understanding the topics being explained.

A few chapters of the book focus on the integration of MCMS and SharePoint technologies which while being a failry popular topic in industry is not something that has been well documented until now. Integration of MCMS with SharePoint or RSS is viewed as a difficult task but has now been made significantly easier.

This book is meant for developers that want to push MCMS past the typical scenario and get the most out of the product. It is not meant to teach MCMS but to help developers familiar with the product to get to the next level of expertise.

By Derek Strickland on June 5, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book starts out strong with 3 chapters fully devoted to creating a sample application using the Publishing API. While the code examples are copious they are (necessarily) somewhat redundant. The authors chose to create an administration tool as the most effective means of illustrating the Publishing API's capability. This was an effective technique in that it exposed the core of the API very quickly to the reader, as well as having the added benefit of communicating the purpose of the MCMS Server. If you are uncertain, as I was, on what problems Microsoft Content Management Server may or may not be the right solution for, this book will take you a long way towards understanding the product and its role in the platform.

After finishing the baseline administration tool, the book takes a refreshing detour on the topic of search engines. Rather than going into detail I will summarize this chapter by saying this, if you need a primer on the basics of Search Engine Optimization, give this chapter a shot. I think you will like it.

Next, the authors spend three chapters on SharePoint integration and configuration. If you are using SharePoint as a foundation for your product or the enabling technology for your internal portal, you should consider the benefits of integrating with MCMS or possibly using MCMS in lieu of SharePoint. My experiences with SharePoint have always reminded me of the end of a brewery tour; fraught with bloat. While SharePoint is remarkably feature-rich, it always seems that the average user either isn't interested in the features or is intimidated by them.
