Changes from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010

  • Deprecated features
  • Features removed from SharePoint Server 2010

Deprecated features

The following features are shipped with SharePoint Server 2010 but will be removed from subsequent versions.

  • Stsadm command-line tool
  • Site Directory feature
  • Scorecard export to Reporting Services
  • Business Data Catalog

Stsadm command-line tool

The Stsadm command-line tool has been deprecated.
Reason for change: The Stsadm command-line tool will be superseded by Windows PowerShell 2.0.
Migration path: The Stsadm command-line tool is included to support compatibility with previous product versions. You should use Windows PowerShell 2.0 when performing command-line administrative tasks.

Site Directory feature

The Site Directory provides a list of links to all sites within a site collection.
Reason for change: This functionality will be replaced by the social features of the User Profile service.
Migration path: Use the Tags and Notes feature to search on any tag that has been entered into the system and see the sites associated with it, as well as other tags and notes that are associated with that site. For a more structured approach to lists of links, every site collection comes with the ability to create lists of links, and workflows so that editorial control can be defined. A script or timer job can create and update a custom links list, or you can staple a feature to the Create Site Collection page in Central Administration.

Scorecard export to Reporting Services

SharePoint Server 2010 no longer supports exporting a scorecard to SQL Server Reporting Services.
Reason for change: This functionality had a low adoption rate.

Business Data Catalog

In Office SharePoint Server 2007, external data was integrated into solutions by using the Business Data Catalog, which was a shared service in the context of the Shared Service Provider framework.
Reason for change: In SharePoint Server 2010, external data is integrated into solutions using the new Business Data Connectivity service, which no longer runs in the context of the Shared Service Provider framework and instead fits into the new shared services framework of SharePoint Server 2010.
Migration path: The Business Data Connectivity service object model is not backward compatible with the object model used in the Business Data Catalog. To support the upward compatibility of Office SharePoint Server 2007 Business Data Catalog solutions with SharePoint Server 2010, an additional service, the Application Registry Service, is available in SharePoint Server 2010 that supports the object model used in the Business Data Catalog. We recommend that new solution development not be done on the Application Registry Service, which is provided only to guarantee upward compatibility of 2007 Microsoft Office system solutions.
