Hi,

I am new to ASP.Net and the web.  I am working on an Intranet application which will require a web Repository.  What is the meaning of a web repository?  What steps are involved setting one up inside your web application?  I am calling the web repository something like:  E-Library.

Do you have a sample web repository that I can look at?

Thanks

Hello Jc9809

look at a web repository as your ENVIROMENT in which your creating your application
An example of this would be a sandbox environment (Development)  
a Quality Assurance Environment (QA)
and the enviroment where you deploy your final product (Production)

you don't set one up inside your application
you put your application inside your repository.

for example:

ServerA is the server that hosts a current business application
ServerA is the repository

ServerB is where your building a new application
serverB is the repository

if you would like to see how you make a sample ASP.NET repository in Visual Studio here is an excellent example from Micrsoft

Plusone3055,

I have created a an Intranet site in VS 2012.  This Intranet site will provide information and document access to employees.  The site should provide employees the ability to locate and access applications, forms and documents and general employee information.

Create Document Repository for the Intranet Project is my task:

   I have broken this up into several task areas.  

1.   The Business Analysis:   Define Document Types/Areas.
       On Applications, I will have Internal and External.  I will have an Information Section.
       I will have Documents Section.  I will have Help Files and Staff Pages.

2.   Define Usage Roles.  Define who will upload documents and access documents.
3.   Create File Structure/Storage Location?  What would I do here is my question?

So A repository is your entire environment  that the Intranet Application will belong to.

it sounds to me like your tryting to build your own Document Management solution software. that is no easy task. My compliments.

Creating file structure and location in laymens terms defining what documents will go where

IE

HR Documents for an employee Application will go into the HR Folder located in C:Program Files\YourapplicationName\HRStorage\EmployeeID\

Have you considered using an ECM package Like Onbase  https://www.hyland.com/ which creates the entire sotrage enviroments for you ? You can create customizable folder cabniets for searching, Cross Reference documents,, and set up user security

Plusone3055,

I need to define the documents/areas that will be part of the repository.

Does this mean that I must define each application internal/external and all of the forms and reports that will be placed in the repository?

yes you would have to define each one.

Document type groups
    document types
         keyword types

Folder Types
    document types in folders
     folder templates (to determine what documeents are missing from folders)

 The list goes on an on :)

I think you are about to embark on a very very long journey. I would strongly recommend that your organization use a packaged software ECM system. There are many affordable ones out there.
