In this walkthrough, you will develop a functional sample solution for managing sales orders with Duet Enterprise. A complete Duet Enterprise solution involves development in the SAP environment, using SAP NetWeaver and ABAP Workbench, and development in the context of SharePoint Server 2010, using SharePoint Designer or Visual Studio 2010. This walkthrough focuses on the steps associated with the development of a particular solution for Duet Enterprise in the Microsoft environment, using Visual Studio 2010. The procedures in this walkthrough are predicated on and build on preparatory development work already done in the SAP environment to create a sales-order management solution. For an explanation of development required for this solution in the SAP environment, see the SAP Duet Enterprise Developer Guide in the SAP Developer Network. This walkthrough more or less picks up with development steps in the Microsoft environment of Duet Enterprise where the SAP Duet Enterprise Developer Guide leaves off.

After a brief overview of the architecture of Duet Enterprise, we look at the necessary preparations for developing solutions that take advantage of Duet Enterprise. The remaining topics in the walkthrough document the considerations and specific steps in developing the sample solution to address the requirements of a typical scenario involving the management of sales order information, in the context of Duet Enterprise.
