  • Site Map Provider using custom business objects

    Recently one of the project I was in a situation to build navigation for line of business data, the existing system available was fully designed as object oriented and it connects with some database other than SQL server. While thinking about showing navigation controls to the user, it was not a good idea to drill through objects as it takes lot of resources and more number of connections. So I decided to use a custom SiteMap provider that uses LOB objects to create navigation. In this article I am going to summarize the major steps I went through.
