I am really impressed by this and it has already inspired me to go deep into this and hoping to create some more custom connectors for other external systems as well.
Found out lot of issues/problems while I am doing this and I just list down possible erroneous scenarios.
- Business Data Connectivity Services issues
- Assembly deployment to the GAC
- Assembly information
- Configure Business Data Connectivity access rights
While I was doing some research on BCS , wanted to import a BDC model from Central Administration > Manage service applications > Business Data Connectivity Services.
As I hit the link, following error message prompted.
As usual did a search on the Google and found out the following entries.
Downloaded the above fix and installed.
problem solved. :)
