I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. I have deployed a publishing portal. It is using a custom forms authentication solution, i.e. I store user names, passwords, and user profile information in a custom (schema) SQL Server database. I am developing using VSTS 2008 + C# + .Net 3.5 + ASP.Net + SharePoint Server 2007 SDK.
I want to learn how to program an integration of the user profiles stored in the database into SharePoint user profile management (so that from SharePoint all users information can have a link for a user and then the profile data stored in my database could be displayed). Any feasible solution? I appreciate if some code samples could be referred.
BTW: I just care that the same profile values are displayed. There is no need to retrieve user profile data from my custom database, any other repository is ok.
