Uroš Kastelic (2011) The Work flow supported application construction for SharePoint Server environment. EngD thesis.
More and more companies are deciding for the renewal of information systems, as well as the computerization and the optimization of business processes. Small, medium or large companies, all are faced with a large amount of documents in both physical and virtual form. SharePoint Server provides an opportunity for storage and content management of the documents and other data. We satisfy the needs of many businesses if we provide the support to the stored contents by the business process workflows. That is how we can mask a very complex workflow to a user and offer him interaction with the application when it is required only. The aim of the thesis is to create a business application with a workflow support for the SharePoint environment. Before any application construction it is necessary that the developer is familiar with the products and the possible solutions to the same problem in several ways. Only then it is possible that at some point developer chooses the right solution for the problem. Featured are three methods of construction, from the simulation of workflow effect with the program code, through the core of the Windows Workflow Foundation framework to other so-called third-party tools. All development products as well as the SharePoint Server are designed for the Microsoft Windows platform, which is why applications were built with the .NET technologies as well.
