Library to integrate with third party apps?
To be honest, haven't yet tried the FDT tool, however, very excited about it. Would the FDT tool be provided as a library for easy integration into external applications? For example, if I have a server in Azure and a client running on a user's workstation, I'd like to have the client use FDT to move files to/from the remote server.
It's probably possible to invoke the FDT client as a separate application from within the client, but, having a library could be a more cleaner way of integration.
Yes, that is possible. The core of it is already a .NET library, and the exe is just a thin shell around it. We have a team here in Microsoft that has been using the library directly on the client side.
Currently its not quite so well-set-up for using the library on the server side. Would you need that too, or just client side?
Anyway, if you email FastDataTransferHelp@microsoft.com we can reply with some additional information about how to use it as a library.
