Microsoft® SharePoint® 2013 Developer Reference: Data Provisioning


This chapter described how to define XML files to provision SharePoint data models and structures. In particular, it showed how to use feature element files to deploy site columns, content types, and list definitions. It also discussed how to do similar things using the designer provided by Microsoft Visual Studio 2012, instead of using low-level XML files. These features promise a great return on investment and a common maintenance plan.
