I get it after few days of googling and testing. The solution is very easy and you don't have to do anything in your development excepting use a factory on your service.

One of the restrictions of sandboxed solutions is that you cannot call WCF web services. There is no way around this, other than calling a web service from the browser using client side (ie: Javascript) code.

I found it. The missing DLL was in C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerRuntime.dll But wasn't registered on VS, so you need to manually browse to the file.

We were having this same issue, though with a different service, search instead of managed metadata. The load frequently took 15 seconds. This KB article had the fix for us: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2625048 . SharePoint 2010 uses SSL to encrypt intra-farm communication. It should work invisibly, but under the right conditions, it can cause problems, ...

SPWeb.Users.GetByEmail() and SPWeb.Users.GetById() is only going to return the users that have logged in to your site. Try the method SPWeb.EnsureUser(). MSDN says the following: Checks whether the specified logon name belongs to a valid user of the website, and if the logon name does not already exist, adds it to the website.

Phil, TransportCredentialOnly is not using SSL - this is really a way to tell WCF that the security is in the message credentials - and as we know Windows credentials are not really secure so if used you might want to use IPSec. If you are looking for SSL security with Windows Authentication you need to ensure you endpoints are configured for SSL and use ...

Arrrrrgh! Finally figured it out after messing with this for a good day. I want to leave this here just in case anyone else runs into the same problem. When I register the Javascript endpoint, I use the full URL of the service. So if the root of my site is at: http://mydomain.com/sites/site1 I register it at: ...

The actual answer is: Use Factory="Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Services.MultipleBaseAddressBasicHttpBindingServiceHostFactory, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerRuntime, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" in your svc file. The MultipleBaseAddressDataServiceHostFactory one is for REST, where your endpoints are your method ...

Why don't you try to first make a request to the site url, which will authenticate you (I am assuming your .NET Client and the SharePoint site are in the same Network/Forest), and you will be able to get the correct cookies that you can use against your REST service. To use the site url cookies against your REST service: const string siteUri ...

I think you might need to use the SharePoint provided ServiceHostFactory to create the appropriate endpoints for your service. Look at this tutorial for the Service Host Factories available: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff521581(v=office.14).aspx SOAP = MultipleBaseAddressBasicHttpBindingServiceHostFactory REST = ...

Since you seem to get a lot of not so great answers on this question: You can not use the Server Object Model outside of the SharePoint farm. This means that you can not use the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll. Instead you need to use the Client Object Model (CSOM). So you need to convert your code (rewrite it) to CSOM and instead of the ...

Ok, firstly, this is a bug in the implementation of SPUtility.StackTraceString; since StackFrame::GetMethod() CAN return null, but this is not checked. The solution, therefore is either to ensure that in the instantiation of the StackFrame collection there are no null methods created. Essentially this means that somewhere in the call stack for this thread ...

Make sure that the paths are valid and accessible. In my case the hostname could not be able to resolved, even I have written the address without hostname. Since I was using a WCF service and deployed in some other server, the metadata link was created with hostname. Even you write the metadata and endpoint addresses with ip, the service might access the ...

I ran into the same problem and solved it by replacing the String[] by a IEnumerable<StringWrapper>, or in your case IEnumerable<Personal_nameElement>.

Unfortunately, the REST API with Javascript will not give you the recurring calendar items. If you want to retrieve the recurring calendar items with client side code, you need to take a look at SPServices: http://spservices.codeplex.com/ Take a look at this thread: http://spservices.codeplex.com/discussions/254560

I suggest you review the Windows Identity Framework SDK for calling a web service using active authentication.

As James said, you can either use some client side technology like javascript/jQuery/ECMAScript or the Silverlight to call WCF services. You can build custom actions by creating XML definitions in element files in Visual Studio projects and attach the workflow logic behind them. And, then you can specify where custom actions should appear, such as on the ...

Dare i ask why you wouldn't just use SPServices (created by @sympmarc), an open source jQuery plugin that wraps methods in the OOTB SharePoint Web / WCF Services, making the use of these services in JavaScript as simple as the following example: $(document).ready(function() { $().SPServices({ operation: "GetListItems", async: false, listName: ...
