  • Opening and Reading an XML file in a document library

    So in a recent SharePoint implementation, I was required to allow users to create links in web parts that performed server side functions. Most of the functions were known quantities but they were almost all external systems. Most of the requirements were to just display security trimmed links to Oracle and other external systems. I had envisioned a single sign-on, BDC system but it turned out the client didn't have the infrastructure to support getting the external data in that way.
