How We Did It: BDC Meta Man Web Edition

For today’s guest post, I’d like to introduce Nick Swan and Phill Duffy.  Nick founded Lightning Tools with Brett Lonsdale in 2006 and BDC Meta Man was a result of their efforts.  Fast forward to 2009 and Phill Duffy is part of the team (Nick Swan, Brett Londsdale, Dmitry Kaloshin, Michael Gamza, Hrayr Diloyan, Ashot Brahamyan, Karen Khumaryan & Hrachya Bekverdyan) that built and launched BDC Meta Man Web Edition.  This post gets into the decisions and components they used to build a custom SharePoint solution.  Enjoy! Introduction BDC Meta Man Web Edition was born from the success of BDC Meta Man and from listening to our users about how they wanted to interact with SharePoint and the Business Data Catalog. We certainly had our work cut out for us as BDC Meta Man is hugely successful and a hard act to follow. One of the surveys conducted by Lightning Tools a short while ago showed that users were asking the question as to why, when SharePoint can communicate with their Line-of-Business Systems, they need to use a desktop application to create the Application Definition File to do so.
