    Hello Pierre,

    There shouldn't be any problems with integrating these .NET applications with Sitefinity. You can place them in a subdirectory, and as with any other .NET applications, you should be careful with the configuration inheritance.

    So, if I'm understanding this correctly, the information linked above (configuration inheritance) is suggesting that we wrap the system.web element in <location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false"> , and that this should be done in the ROOT web.config file (in the root of MySitefinitySite), correct?

    If so, would that affect any other things that are deeper in the structure of the Sitefinity site (there are some other web.configs in there, right)?

    Could you please clarify what would be a suitable way to have self-contained, non-sitefinity applications running within a Sitefinity site, assuming that they won't affect each other?

    Thanks,

    Marko

    Hi,

    I have a similar requirement. I have an existing application which needs to be hosted within Sitefinity. I intend to use Sitefinity for its content management, forums, polls etc. My application will share authentication with the sitefinity application through a common membership provider.

    Kind Regards,

    Derick

    Just a clarification. My application is completed, I now want to use Sitefinity for the portal part of it. It is going to end up as a single application with Sitefinity as part of it. My only concern is that the sessions should not get messed up and a single authentication should be possible for access throughout the application. Do you see any problems with implementing this?

    Hi,

    Kalindi,
    We are not sure about the nature of your application, but from the provided description we could not spot any problems. We trying not to use sessions in Sitefinity (an exception is in the Newsletter module only). Please let us know if you face any problems. We will be glad to assist you.

    Marko,
    You are right that <location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false"> should be placed in the root web.config file, but please be informed that it should be placed in the parent application. If you run Sitefinity as a sub application, then this declaration should not be in the Sitefinity's web.config file. We confirm that if you place it in the Sitefinity's web.config file it should not stop the CMS from its normal operation. The setting is preventing the provider settings inheritance, but Sitefinity already loads these settings from the main web.config file.
    If you give us particular application(or its settings) that you want to integrate with Sitefinity, we would tell you the best way of integrating. It depends on the providers you use, as well the authentication methods for your application. It is possible that you do not do any changes in your sub application.

    Thanks, that makes sense.  We are running Sitefinity as the main application in the IIS site, so Sitefinity's web.config is at the root level.  For  now, i don't have any specific sub application questions.  this was mainly to plan things out for the future.
