Not the prettiest of applications … but fully functional for connecting the BDC with a database! Now all we need is for this to do the same with web services 🙂


Nice work Todd!

    Another good tool for this is ‘MOSS BDC Design Studio’ which I think has Webservices and (no offence intended) ‘looks nice’.

  2. I also have a BDC generator. It uses Enterprise Architect and lets you design and view your database and BDC connection using standard UML with a standard UML diagramming tool instead of some custom clunky app.

    We don’t have web services yet, but that will come. There’s a free trial if anyone is interested. http://www.bedfordtg.com/EAMS
