Business Connectivity Services - Sharepoint 2010

Business Connectivity Services is a new provided to what earlier existed as Business Data Catalogue in SharePoint. BCS adds a lot of new features and has been enhanced immensely now.
BCS connects with the external systems including but not limited to:
1.     Microsoft SQL Server Databases
2.     Your very own custom applications
3.     Other SharePoint WebSites
4.     Web Services hosted
All these sources are exposed as SharePoint Lists, hence all the operations which are applicable to lists can be performed on the external content using these lists.
One of the main improvement is these lists are bi-directional in nature. It’s a hugh benefit from its predecessor. Now you can even update the data in the external source apart from displaying ii in the SharePoint 2010 Site.
