Unfortunately the code in CompositeComponentController threw a NullReferenceException inside a call to
SiteContext.GetWebSiteUrl(). Having never used that particular method before, I turned to my primary Sitecore documentation tool – the decompiler. Turns out the method calls an overloaded version of it self by passing a
Database as argument – but not just any database,
Maybe I’m too much of a Sitecore newbie for asking this, but what is the content database in code running on a CD-server? In my solution it’s
null. Decompiling into the
ContentDatabase property of
Sitecore.Context, I see that you can set a content database on the site definition config using a
content attribute. Should I set it to web on CD-servers?
Have you experienced other Sitecore APIs that make hidden use of ContentDatabase?
