Programming Microsoft Infopath
A Developer's GuideeBook - 2004
InfoPath 2003 is a new addition to Microsoft Office that streamlines the process of fathering, sharing, and using information, by enabling teams and organizations to create, share, and work with rich, dynamic forms. The information gathered is easily reusable throughout organizations and across multiple processes because the native file format of InfoPath is XML. The ability of InfoPath to generate and consume XML makes it an easy platform to integrate and extend, and allows developers to create a variety of interfaces that connect and integrate with a wide spectrum of business processes and work flow. Programming Microsoft InfoPath: A Developer's Guide takes a practical and code-oriented approach to provide the essential skill set and examples that are needed to develop and implement applications with InfoPath. Starting with an introduction to the InfoPath IDS, and an explanation of how XML is used within the InfoPath environment, the developer is led through the development of CML schemas, and taught how they can be leveraged within an InfoPath solution. Developers will then learn how to generate Web Service and SQL forms, as well as how to integrate solutions seamlessly into the human workflow. Finally, the book shows users how to create mobile, secure solutions, and offers deployment strategies. This is an essential reference for any developer interested in creating distributed applications that use InfoPath.
