So you have a custom list  and you want to add the business data field using API?

This isn't too hard. But I would recommend, creating a list schema, add in your BDC fields, create  a list template, and then provision the list. Doing all this through a feature. Working with the BDC API is tricky. You can do it but you need to read up on the BDC first.

I recommend this book. SharePoint 2007 Developer's Guide to the Business Data Catalog by Manning Publishing. It's an awesome book.
