The goal of this project is to provide a set of service applications that can be installed individually to a SharePoint 2010 farm to be used by developers and administrators to perform their tasks more simply and efficiently. For developers, these service applications provide capabilities that are otherwise unavailable in a default SharePoint farm. For administrators, these service applications provide a consistent and efficient management mechanism of aspects of your team's custom SharePoint applications without having to modify configuration files on the server or leaving the Central Administration website.
