I'm new into Sharepoint development.

I'm looking into a previously written console program that updates a list from a Sap database. I've found this line of code where in I'm not able to find any resource on the ListData type:

ListData.ViewData view = null;

I need some clarity into exactly what kind of data type is it? (does it belong to system or sharepoint?). Also can someone throw some light on exactly how a windows communication foundation service is used? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there is also a WCF service available for this type as well.

Thanks for your time !

  • Can you provide more clarity for that LisData.ViewData ?? – Arvi May 1 '14 at 8:54
  • Sorry it's ListData.ViewData. Upon further inspection I Realized that this is just dataTable being used by the previous programmer. – Aman Gupta May 1 '14 at 9:44

You can communicate with sharepoint through service(ListData.svc) which allows you to operations on the list. Please find below the microsoft link to teach how to communicate with these services Accessing SharePoint 2010 Lists by Using WCF Data Services
