Integrate Silverlight into Sharepoint 2007!

Often, i have noticed my colleagues ask me information on this.However, Microsoft has come up with a quick answer on this and has provided a new bundle to integrate silverlight applications into Sharepoint/MOSS 2007 portals in Codeplex.

The Silverlight Blueprint for Sharepoint is now in RTM Code for the version which works with Silverlight 2 Beta 2 is also available at

The updated release of the Silverlight Blueprint for SharePoint contains a set of self-contained samples that using the blueprint methodology you can deploy to your SharePoint site to test out the Silverlight applications. The goal of the blueprints is to give you some guidance on how to integrate Silverlight applications with SharePoint. There are many possibilities here, and we’ve put together just a few to get you started.

Note: Make sure you amend the web.config file in the root folder of your SharePoint site to allow for your Silverlight application. We discuss this and provide a link to a sample web.config file, in the FAQ document located on the Beta 2 Releases tab.

I added the last of the RTM files today, the colleague viewer and the custom navigation, along with a Beta 2 to RTM change document. You can also access the Beta 2 samples should you need them from the Releases tab.

For more information about Software-plus-Services Blueprints please visit out main landing page on Channel9:

The above blueprint is the newer version and an older version of these blueprints are available from here. You can also read more on this from Tim Heuer’s blog post.
