(each session is about 75 minutes long and includes a live Q&A)
SharePoint Server 2010’s Business Connectivity Services (BCS) greatly enhance the capabilities the Business Data Catalog (BDC) provided in SharePoint 2007. The BCS provides a wide array of connectivity options to external data sources and complimentary components that integrate with the SharePoint platform and Office applications. Once you have a clear understanding of the components which make up the BCS, the available data access options, and the extensibility points, it is easier than ever to build complex line of business applications based on the SharePoint platform.
In this class, you’ll learn what components make up the BCS and how it works. We'll examine how to create line of business applications with external content types and external lists with SharePoint Designer 2010.
