Multi-Touch SharePoint Document Management System

Hi Guys,

Apologies, I've got a few updates to do... Ive been busy with some projects recently. Of which one of them I am extremely proud to unveil. I have been working on a multi-touch sufrace similar to that of Microsofts but at much reduced price.

For example check out this youtube video (I will be posting all the screencasts and pics up later next month), but this will give you the idea.

Maximum PC's Multitouch Surface Computer from Maximum PC on Vimeo.

So I set forth and build one of these multi-touch PC's as the Maximum guys above have shown. However I didnt want to build new applications in Action Script and Flash, although it was cool just to play around with the samples that can be found open source in flash.

So I downloaded WPF 4.0 CTP and Visual Studio 2010 with Windows 7 also. Becuase Windows 7 has an API for 2 finger touch (I will explain what that means in a minute) and WPF 4.0 natively also it meant that I could start building my application very quickly.

For example and this is the really cool part... In WPF 4.0 we have methods dedicated to Touch. For example, the onfingerdown method...

On hold, sorry guys, but a client has asked that I keep this back for a while before release all the screen shots etc... Will be here soon as possible, if you want any guidence please just ask.

Dynamics AX 4.0 - MOSS 2007 Intergration

I've been away for while working on some really good WPF Sharepoint & Office Apps that will be put up later on.

This article will be in a series of articles talking about how to Develop and deploy Microsoft Dynamics Axapt 4.0 with MOSS 2007 Intergration.

Business Requirement:

Dyanmics AX 4.0 Information in federated combined MOSS 2007 search. Document handling through MOSS 2007 (Work flow, ECM (CHECKIN/OUT), Office 2007 pane intergration using WPF for PDF preview from axapta 4.0 and more..)

Things to keep in mind:

Dynamics AX 4.0 is build NOT UPON .NET!!! This is very important when designing your systems, you will need to have something called the BDC (Not MOSS BDC) But the Business Data Connector. This will be explained in more detail.

You will also need to have the Dynamics AX Enterprise portal templates, webparts and Site template defintitions. I have create adoc versions of these but my recommendations are that you use the installer found on the Dynamics AX setup disc.

Update coming soon....
