OBA Sample Application Kit for PeopleSoft Released to Web
So, with the above in hand what is this OBA Sample Application Kit for PeopleSoft?
In many cases, developers don't have the knowledge on how to programmatically integrate Office applications with LOB systems. What this kit provides is guidance on how you can integrate with Web services that have been generated from within PeopleSoft and then consume those services within a .NET and managed code environment. The OBA Sample Application Kit for PeopleSoft (one in a series of kits) includes a whitepaper, installation document, source code, and client-side binaries (server-side (MOSS) code is discussed in the documents how to deploy) for you to use and learn how you integrate PeopleSoft programmatically into your Office system.
The goal of the kit is to provide developers with some information on how they can go ahead and learn how to programmatically integrate PeopleSoft with Office (specifically Outlook 2007 and MOSS 2007), thus providing you with specific knowledge around Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) - a component technology within Visual Studio 2008 that enables you to build Office solutions, the MOSS 2007 BDC and the integration with Web services, and more generically the use of Web services developed using PeopleTool within .NET and the Visual Studio IDE.
