how to make Infopath consume data from Sharepoint online auto hosted lightswith app. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have some InfoPath forms that currently use some SharePoint lists to auto fill information.

    I would like to move that data into the database of a lightswitch application hosted in office 365. I need to reconnect the forms to the tables in the database. I understand the database is hosted in a "slim" azure. So what are my options to expose the data to InfoPath?

    Its better to use Windows Azure then let Office 365 auto host it. I can then surface those queries into office 365 using the bcs and attach the InfoPath forms to those list.
