On the way of explaining the process of implementing custom web services in SharePoint, I thought of telling you the advantage of App_Code folder in SharePoint. So, Please read this post before continue here.

If you are a .NET developer then you know the advantage of App_Code folder. When I am new to SharePoint technology, I thought like we can't add App_Code folder in SharePoint root folder because i didn't find it in the virtual directory path. […/Inetpub/wwwroot/…../] But few days back, when I got time, I want to do experiment on the App_Code folder in SharePoint. So, what are the advantages and how to do it please follow below steps.

  • Go to SharePoint web site virtual directory file system path. There you can find web.config file, _app_bin, App_Browsers etc…
  • Create a folder named App_Code.
  • Copy a class file [.cs], which you want to use in SharePoint coding inside the App_Code folder.

Now, you can access this class any where in the SharePoint web site. Very useful one right?

Wow, This helped me many scenarios and really a good tactic for solving lot of problems. Try this now!!!
