Architecture of team foundation server (tfs) excel add-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • We can use Excel to connect to a TFS server and then select a work item query. Based on the query a list of work Items shows up in excel. The data can be edited and published (saved) back to server.

    I would like to know the architecture / technology that TFS excel add-in uses to save the data back to TFS. Main question is does excel access data using which one of the following 1) a web service that TFS exposes 2) the code in add-in using some TFS client side object model or 3) is it using some SQL server or SharePoint out of the box functionality to do it.
