  • Blog Post: SharePoint Solution using BCS: Part II

    In my initial post on this, I created a read-only application that used a Web service. The original post provided a step-by-step walkthrough of how to use the VS 2010 BDC Metadata model template and integrate it with Web services. http://blogs.msdn.com/steve_fox/archive/2009/12/26/sharepoint-2010-development...
  • Blog Post: Sharepoint 2010 development using bcs

    One of the big features for SharePoint 2010 (and for building OBAs) is the Business Connectivity Services (BCS).

  • Blog Post: get trained with Sharepoint 2010 and office 2010 videos

    One of the charters of my team is to make sure that we provide collateral for developers to get up and running with a program called Metro—an early adoption program for ISVs (to sign up for Metro or get more information, you can email metroreq@microsoft.com ). Part of this program is creating things...
  • Blog Post: Tweeting from SharePoint 2010 Visual Web Part

    I’m still trying to get into the whole Tweet thing, so in an attempt to dig into it a little I took a look at the API and found out it’s pretty functional. My version of a Hello World app was having the ability to call the REST Twitter API to update my status on Twitter. I figure if I can figure out...
  • Blog Post: Retrieve SharePoint List Data with XLINQ using VS 2010 Beta 1

    One of the key things you’ll likely want to do with SharePoint is interact a lot with lists.

  • Blog Post: Another Office Customization with Beta 1 – Excel Add-in with Custom Task Pane

    I recently downloaded the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 and have been playing around with the different features for Office Business Application development. For the public Beta 1, you’ll be limited to the 2007-centric templates (e.g. Excel 2007 Add-in, Word 2007 Document, etc.), but the nice thing is that...
  • Blog Post: Using Media Streaming Services to Integrate Silverlight with SharePoint

    One of the cool things about the Media Streaming Services is that you can circumvent some of the server set-up for SharePoint and still integrate a Silverlight (SL) app into your SharePoint (SP) site. By using the Media Streaming Services, which are free by the way, you can integrate a cool little SL...
  • Blog Post: Amending the web.config File to Support Silverlight Development on SharePoint

  • Blog Post: Web Services and SharePoint: How do I do it?

    When building an OBA, you’re often going to want to either integrate with the native Web services for SharePoint (when I say SharePoint, in this instance I’m referring to both the WSS and the MOSS services) or you’ll want to create your own custom services. The question often comes up is how? In this...

  • Blog Post: Create Your First OBA: Part 5

    Hey gang, It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been on the road.
