I'm extending an LOB enquiry system with SharePoint.
My design has enquiries as a list assiciated with the relevent subsite (regonal office). When adding an item to this list (approx 100 per month), a web service call needs to be made to the LOB system to create the enquiry in that system (passing in a couple
of fields from the list). This will return the LOB identifier which I will then store in the SharePoint list.
At a later point, when viewing this enquiry, another web service call will be made to retrieve information from LOB system for a particular enquiry.
BCS seems logical for the second requirement, but how about the first? Is that feasable using BCS? Any pointers? Any other suggestions, I can't see this as being an unusual desire. surely lots of SharePoint systems need to integrate with external systems,
I've just never worked on one myself. Any web links for someone who's done something similar themselves?
