  • Hi xyz2012,

     

    Thanks for your post.

    Here is the summary issue as I understand.

    You want to write/read data with other database in SharePoint 2007. And now, you want to find whether there are some products already existed.

     

    First, I agree with you. The products which you want to use may be existed. But as far as I know, they are not free;

    Second, it’s not a bad idea to create a custom web part to meet the requirement;

    Third, the data cannot be written back to the database using BDC in SharePoint 2007, but you can achieve this using BCS in SharePoint 2010.

     

    In addition: you can find some Open Source project about SharePoint in the CodePlex site.

    Thanks,

  • Unfortunately BDC doesn't support read/write operation. You've to follow the traditional way of developing application pages with ADO.NET/Enterprise Library application blocks to get/set the values from sql database

  • BDC is used to read/surface data residing in database(SAP, Siebel, or other line-of-business (LOB) application via Web services or databases) onto SharePoint. BCS goes a step ahead and allows writing back into external DBs.

  • I do not think a CEWP will work.

    thanks.

  • You have access to their database?

    You can use RSS feed reader to display data from these sites.

    If you want to surface data from DB on to your site then make use of BDC.

  • I´ve had a look at the Bloomberg site, and there´s no RSS feed there, so I can only assume that you mean stocks and shares news?

    I´ve also had a look at the Rueters site, which has quite a few RSS feeds as you can see here http://uk.reuters.com/tools/rss

    This effectively means that you can do a few things.  If you´re wanting to bring in content from either of these site, I think this link will help

    1. Adding RSS feeds to your site - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/add-rss-feeds-to-your-sharepoint-site-HA010291095.aspx

    If, as Mahesh says, you´re after incorporating information at a database or application level, BDC represents the best way to do this.  You´d need to note that there is quite a bit to pick up here and that you can only bring in information from these sources, not write back to them via BDC.  A good link to learn about this technology is: -

  • Hi,

     

     

    I work for a bank that has bought Reuters and Bloomberg data services. We do not want or need to get external RSS.

    We want to connect to the databases for these systems directly and it has to be read/write.

    Where is the list of companies that support surfacing their LOB data into sharepoint via web parts they have written.

    I know there are hundreds of companies making web parts for sharepoint so that sharepoint can show data in their systems...there was a list ages ago on microsoft but i dont know where it is for 2007.

    Any idea?

     

    thanks
