Recently in one of our projects, we had to do some performance optimizations that required us to look a bit closer at the resources our application used. In general, you should always dispose an object that’s implementing the IDisposable interface.

In the 1200 series, a few new web services are available out of the box. In this article I’ll tell you what they are for, how you can use them and give some insight on the technical details behind the services to make you understand them better.
There are two services new to K2 in the 1200 series:
- K2 Services
- K2 SmartObject Services
The K2 Services were first introduced in the KB001200 Update which contains a WS and WCF endpoint. A later release will bring REST-enabled endpoints for the K2 Services. The SmartObject Services are released in KB001230.
This post will cover the KB001200 and KB0001230 release functionality. The additional REST-enabled endpoints for K2 Services will be discussed in a separate post once released.
