The Business Connectivity Services (BCS) Solution Packaging Tool is intended for Power Users and Developers of Microsoft Business Connectivity Services solutions.
With this tool you can create:
– Intermediate Declarative Solutions (for Microsoft Outlook 2010)
– Advanced Code-Based Solutions (utilizing a Solution Manifest, for Microsoft Outlook 2010)
– Data Solutions (for use with Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Add-Ins)
This tool includes a help file.
A sample solution has been added to the Downloads page (click “Sample Solution” in the Releases navigation at the right side of the page).
The tool now has an option to validate the artifacts and their connections before packaging. This option is on by default, but can be turned off to speed up the packaging process.
