Bamboo Solutions Corporation, a technology provider specializing in collaborative information management solutions for government and industry, announced the immediate availability of a new web part for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies. The List Integrity Web Part enforces various constraints and performs background “housekeeping” tasks while maintaining referential integrity between SharePoint lists. SharePoint lists, as they are designed today, can be linked using a “look up” field, where one list can refer to data from another list, thus supporting a 1:N (one-to-many) relationship. This lookup capability allows developers to architect information using a familiar relational approach. In a standard SharePoint environment, managing the relationship between different lists is left to the end user, often leaving data unidentified or orphaned during basic list operations. The List Integrity Web Part allows for a referential integrity relationship between two data sets to be defined much like a traditional database defines relationships between tables. It then enforces (based on user selections) various constraints and performs background “housekeeping” tasks to maintain the relationship automatically. The List Integrity Web Part is available for immediate purchase and download via Bamboo’s online store.
