Accessing LOB systems from MOSS2007

  Asked By: Cedric    Date: Jan 19    Category: MOSS    Views: 844

I am trying to come up with a list of all the possible ways to access,
retrieve and/or display foreign data from back-end LOB systems. Once
this list is compiled we need to examine the pros/cons/detail of each to
present a list of various solutions. So far I have the following:

- BDC Business Data Catalog / ADFs + BDC Web Parts

- Custom Web Parts / ASP.NET ODBC Data Sources, Connections and

- XML WebPart to display XML generated output from LOB systems
(not sure how this would work yet)

- Page Viewer web part to display Images and Text from foreign
Web Applications

That's all I have so far. Does anyone out there have any other methods
(built-in or custom) that can be utilized to get data from databases or
back-end LOB systems that I may be missing. And if experience in the
past with this, are there certain methods that are better suited for
certain situations?

Thanks all for sharing.
