Business Conectivity Services not installed

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I created an External List using Sharepoint 2010. My next step was to connect the external list to Outlook 2010. But when I click on the "Connect to Outlook" button, I get a popup message saying that Business Connectivity Services (BCS) is not installed. The popup says that I need to install it using the Office 2010 installation from Control Panel. But when I go to Control Panel and change my Office 2010 installation, there is no BCS feature to select or install. I have Microsoft Office Professional 2010. Am I missing anything, or is this just a setting I need to activate? I installed both Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and Sharepoint Server 2010 on my development machine. Can someone help me with this? Thanks in advance.

How to create a BCS (Business Conectivity Services) column programatically?

  

Hi,

I have a SP2007 app that adds a BDC column to a list like this:

  string xml = "<Field Type=\"BusinessData\" DisplayName=\"Product\" ...>"; 
  SPField fld = list.fields.AddFieldAsXml(xml, true, addOptions);

  BusinessDataField bdcField = fld as BusinessDataField;
  bdcField.SystemInstanceName = instance;
  bdcField.EntityName =         entity;
  bdcField.BdcFieldName =       bdcFldName;
  bdcField.Profile =            profile;
  bdcField.HasActions =         hasActions;

  bdcField.Update();

How do I do it in SP 2010? Class BusinessDataField  does not exist in Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls,
and I found no samples.

Thanks in advance

BizTalk 2004: Automate Your Business Processes with Human Workflow Services and Visual Studio

  

BizTalk Server is an excellent platform for automating B2B and EAI workflows. Process-driven workflows send messages between machines and access data. Until now, such processes were very difficult to automate, but with the introduction of Human Workflow Services in BizTalk Server 2004, this class of workflow automation is a very real possibility. This article explains it all.

Web Services: Extend the ASP.NET WebMethod Framework with Business Rules Validation

  

In an earlier article the authors showed how to build a custom WebMethods extension that provides XML Schema validation, a function that is lacking in ASP.NET. In the process they established a foundation for enforcing business rules during the deserialization of XML data. The technique, which is described in this article, uses declarative XPath assertions to test business rule compliance.In building this business rules validation engine, the authors integrate the validation descriptions into the WSDL file that is automatically generated by the WebMethod infrastructure. Finally, they demonstrate how to extend wsdl.exe, the tool that generates WebMethod proxy/server code from WSDL files, to make use of their extensions.
