      This code sample shows how accessing and manipulating various SharePoint Server components programmatically—such as the Member group and user permissions, and business data catalog and legacy line-of-business (LOB) data sources—with the built-in SharePoint Server APIs enable this type of business process automation.

      The automation was developed primarily by using Visual Studio Tools for Office 2007 Second Edition and the Visual Studio 2005 Extensions for Windows Workflow Foundation.

      Additionally, you can develop traditional .NET Framework console and Windows Forms applications to make use of the SharePoint Server APIs and 2007 Office system APIs that will also facilitate the automation and simplification of business processes within the enterprise.
