Sharepoint 2010 development using bcs

One of the big features for SharePoint 2010 (and for building OBAs) is the Business Connectivity Services (BCS). I’ve written a few posts on this, but wanted to follow up on these early posts with some additional detail on how to create a solution leveraging web services.

Using Media Streaming Services to Integrate Silverlight with SharePoint

One of the cool things about the Media Streaming Services is that you can circumvent some of the server set-up for SharePoint and still integrate a Silverlight (SL) app into your SharePoint (SP) site.

Silverlight, SharePoint, Services…Oh Yeah!!!

Web Services and SharePoint: How do I do it?

When building an OBA, you’re often going to want to either integrate with the native Web services for SharePoint (when I say SharePoint, in this instance I’m referring to both the WSS and the MOSS services) or you’ll want to create your own custom services.
