Accessing external data sources using InfoPath Forms with SharePoint 2010 – whether on-premises, in sandboxed solutions or in Office 365 SharePoint online, there is tremendous interest in learning how to do this. In this 4-part video series, complete with sample code and a Hands-on Lab (HOL) for guidance, you can learn from the InfoPath experts at Qdabra Software on just how to go about doing this. This series was built to focus on leveraging external data in Office 365 SharePoint Online, but it also applies to on-premises scenarios as well. The series covers from how to build reusable Universal Data Connections (UDCs), to how to convert a SOAP-based WCF service to a REST-based service with Windows Azure as the endpoint, to leveraging the REST-based services and OData inside InfoPath Forms. The content also surfaces some exceptional techniques for managing cascading drop-downs inside InfoPath forms. So set aside some time and learn from the experts!
