Intresting comments on Reporting, SOA & the Role of InfoPath
Ted Neward (Editor-in-Chief of TheServerSide.NET) posted a link on this site to my previous post about Reporting in a SOA World. There are some intresting comments and links posted over there discussing how InfoPath can be (ab)used as a reporting engine:
- Serve InfoPath Documents Dynamically, Drew Robbins
“I created a little experiment to serve InfoPath documents dynamically from ASP.NET. Once opened, I wanted the form to already be populated with values from a database rather then having two views (Query and Data Entry). Then, the user could make whatever changes necessary and post back to a web service. The user could also save the document for offline editing and submit to the web service when getting back online later.“
- Viewing InfoPath forms without InfoPath, Joel Alley (thx to Rolf Tollerud)
Update: Ingo Rammer has posted some comments too.
