Product Description

From the Back Cover

Professional Office Business Application Development Using Microsoft® Office SharePoint Server 2007 and VSTO

Office business application (OBA) development leverages the Office environment with SharePoint Server 2007 and Visual Studio® tools for Office (VSTO) to build solutions that integrate the most important details of design, deployment, and development to Office tools that are used every day. Understanding the key elements of building and deploying an OBA is integral to bridge the gap between business data and the people who need it.

After two helpful introductory chapters that review the concepts and design patterns behind OBAs, Steve Fox and Bill Sheldon dive into discussing the ways of creating specific parts of an OBA. Using a sample sales forecast OBA throughout the book, the authors escort you from the client-side development of the sales forecast OBA to the SharePoint, server-side extensions so that you can learn firsthand how to build an OBA from end to end.

What you will learn from this book

  • How various technologies connect to one another as part of a whole composite application

  • How to add business intelligence through Excel® Web Services and key performance indicators

  • Ways to break down a scenario into various components so you can understand the specifics

  • Tips for deploying and securing your OBA server components

Who this book is for
