Last modified: April 05, 2010

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

InfoPath Forms Services, which is included as part of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, enables InfoPath form templates designed in Microsoft InfoPath 2010 to be published as ASP.NET Web applications that provide a similar experience to filling out a form in the InfoPath Filler. Throughout this section of the SDK, the term InfoPath Forms Services is used to describe the technology that enables InfoPath form templates to be converted and rendered in the browser.

Other resources, including two MSDN articles about hosting the InfoPath form editing environment in a custom Windows application or in a custom Web application, can be found on the InfoPath Developer Portal.
