SharePoint Series / Infopath BDC Creator


Hi,


Yesterday I started an idea that came to my mind in my trips: create an Infopath form to generate a BDC file (Application definition). The first version (v0.1) that you can download has room for improvement (coming soon :)) and It can generate only model (not resources).


The most challenging node was the TypeDescriptor, as it is a repeating recursive section (and first I forgot to clear the compatibility with forms server 😉 [this control cannot be used in browser mode]) and Infopath does not represent correctly without manual action.


Thanks to Nick Dallett !


Please send me examples generated with the tool and bugs!:
