Olen puhkuselt tagasi ning kohe saan alustada hea uudisega – nimelt on väljas uus SharePoint Server 2007 SDK (Software Development Kit).

Kõige olulisem uuendus on Business Data Catalog Definition Editor. Varem oli BDC tegemisega nii, et igaüks kas kirjutas ise notepadiga valmis xml-faili ning connectionite definitsioonid või kasutas mõnda kolmanda partei toodet, mis selle ära automatiseeris. Lõpuks aga on Microsoft ise välja tulnud oma tool'ga, mis automatiseerid BDC-definitsioonifaili kirjutamist.

Soovitan kõikidel arendajatel tõmmata endale uus SDK, kuna seal on lisaks BDC-editorile ka palju muud uut lisainfot koos lihtsate näidiste ja piltskeemidega.
