  4. 4. FRENCH InfoPath/SharePoint Tool (FIST) <ul><li>FIST is an approach taken by “Co.” Global Initiative Dept. in introducing InfoPath/SharePoint capabilities to “Co.” US and “Co.” Global departments. </li></ul><ul><li>FIST will deliver Pilot Projects to verify and meet requirements of France Office(Sponsor) </li></ul>
  5. 5. FIST Objectives <ul><li>FIST must be robust enough for production use, or tweaking by client. </li></ul><ul><li>FIST must deliver overall InfoPath/SharePoint capabilities so that the client can build Next Generation collaborative solutions </li></ul>
  6. 6. FIST Focus Areas <ul><li>Best practices in using InfoPath/SharePoint within “Pharma Co.” </li></ul><ul><li>Graphic Design capabilities using InfoPath/SharePoint </li></ul><ul><li>Back End handling Of InfoPath Data ( SQL Server, Oracle ) </li></ul><ul><li>InfoPath Forms security Deployment Considerations </li></ul><ul><li>Interfaces with other “co.” system (One Note, Siebel, Flash) </li></ul><ul><li>Integration with Active Directory </li></ul><ul><li>Utilizing InfoPath/SharePoint capabilities on tablet PC, mobile and PDA devices. </li></ul><ul><li>Communicate with Flash content embedded in an InfoPath form (output: sample form + code) </li></ul><ul><li>Communicate from Flash embedded in InfoPath form to backend code of InfoPath form (output: sample form + code) </li></ul><ul><li>Testing InfoPath Forms using NUnit, some other testing tools? </li></ul>
  7. 7. FIT Observations ( Architectural landscape) <ul><li>Template can be developed by template designer and imported in VS.NET providing separation of concerns for presentation and custom code generation. </li></ul><ul><li>Very Easy to implement build in functionality for integrating with back end (read from, write into SQL ) </li></ul><ul><li>Utilities are available to convert Word/HTML to InfoPath Form leveraging existing Word /HTML knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>As far as possible, manual changes to InfoPath Forms code should be avoided. In other words use existing tools to manipulate InfoPath Forms. </li></ul><ul><li>Active X Custom control integration allows developers and users to incorporate third party controls easily. </li></ul><ul><li>InfoPath uses DOM for Searching xml whereas sharePoint 2007( 2.0 ) uses XPathNavigator. Recommendation is to write generic search library to be used by InfoPath as well as sharePoint ( Phase 2 ) </li></ul>

FIST Pilot Projects <ul><li>InfoPath data saved in SharePoint Document Library(output: sample form with C# code) </li></ul><ul><li>FTP Upload Tool (output: sample Windows Forms app) </li></ul><ul><li>InfoPath form import (XML->SQL) (output: sample C# console app) </li></ul><ul><li>Simple reporting tool on InfoPath form data (output: sample ASP.NET application) </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic build script for InfoPath forms (output: script to automate some of the developer work) </li></ul><ul><li>Connecting InfoPath/SharePoint With Siebel </li></ul><ul><li>Interfacing InfoPath/SharePoint with AD (output: sample C# Winforms application) </li></ul><ul><li>Interfacing InfoPath with Flash( output: sample C# Winforms Application) </li></ul><ul><li>Exporting InfoPath forms on mobile and PDA devices. </li></ul><ul><li>InfoPath off line data handling capabilities. </li></ul>
