How does Ribbon in SharePoint 2010 works?

A file called CMDUI.XML stays at the web front end which contains the Out-of-Box site wide Ribbon implementation i.e. all the Ribbon UI for the entire site. In addition to this you have a CustomAction for each ribbon component.
These CustomActions have CommandUIExtentions block which has CommandUIDefinitions and CommandUIHandlers which make up the activity of the ribbon component.
So, when the ribbon is loaded the CommandUIDefinition merges with Out-of-Box definition in the CMDUI.XML

WebService: 1.Web services are the easy way to create communications between different applications of different platform. 2.Web Services extend these models a bit further to communicate with the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Extensible Markup Language (XML) to eradicate the object-model-specific protocol barrier.

Create Site Collection in Separate Content Database in SharePoint

Problem: When a “Site Collection” is created in a web application, then the proceeding Site Collections created in the same “Web Application” will use the Same Content DB. This creates problems in the following scenarios: 1.Size of the one Site Collection grows large then it will affect the other Site Collection too. The
reason being maximum size of a Content DB for a Site Collection with good performance is 200 GB
(referred some MSDN articles). 2.During migration/archival/splitting of content DB.

Solution: The solution for the above problem is to “Create Site Collections with Separate Content DB for each Site Collection”. But by default SharePoint allows you to create new site collections in the Same Content DB which is used by the web application (one created first – Top Level Site Collection) Using Central Administration page: 1.Suppose that we have created a Top Level Site Collection with content DB named “WSS_Content_1000”.
