Linq to XML and Deleting Lists on Feature Deactivation

A few months ago, I discussed how to use LINQ to XML to parse your elements.xml file to delete any files that you may have deployed on feature activation.  Today I have decided to reuse this concept to delete any lists that I have created when I deactivate a feature?  Now you may ask, “why would I want to delete a list when a feature is deactivated?  I’ll lose all of my data in that list!”  My answer is: Yes, of course you will, but sometimes when building a feature to deploy a list(s), you want to delete the list each time before you deploy a new version of it.  During developme...

The way it works is that it checks to see if a dependent solution has already been deployed on your farm (or site collection for sandbox solutions).  However... (more)

Cloud Expo New York There is a ton of discussion, stories, articles, videos, conferences and blogs about the benefits and value proposition of cloud computing.
