In our previous episode we discussed Installing SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 7 latop for development purposes. In this episode I am going to discuss Sandboxed Solutions. Sandboxed Solutions allow you to install your own solutions on a server, something that was not typically allowed in earlier version of SharePoint. Why? Well, in past versions all code ran in the same process space so one rogue application could take down the entire server!
With Sandboxed Solutions we can isolate your code into it's own process space and thus protect other code as well as the SharePoint process from your code and provide more stability. This is a great feature when you consider a hosted SharePoint offering because the hoster can now allow custom code without worrying about what damage the code could cause.
