Announcing: Office Business Application (OBA) Sample Application Kit for SAP v. 2.0

I just released the new Office Business Application (OBA) Sample Application Kit for SAP v. 2.0 to MSDN. The kit is now ready for download and has been fully updated for SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010. Downloads for the kit include a Technical Walkthrough Whitepaper describing the various components used in the solution, an Installation Guide, a Demo Walkthrough of the end-user’s experience and all the source code (unsupported and for instructional use only) .

The sample application kit is a travel package booking application composed of an Excel 2010 add-in and a SharePoint 2010 site. The Excel 2010 add-in facilitates the process of purchasing packages, maintaining packages and associated events and booking flights. The application is also used to dynamically generate PowerPoint 2010 presentations using the Open XML SDK. These PowerPoint 2010 presentations are shown to potential customers and display marketing information designed to entice customers to purchase packages. The SharePoint 2010 site is a web site that enables the browsing of packages, events, flights and customer data. A Silverlight Web part is also used to browse the customer and flight data providing a sample for using the client object model to retrieve SAP data via BCS and SAP Web Services.
