Excel Interoperability ProjectThis practical project is concerned with application development in which spreadsheets (for example, Excel) play an important role. In particular, improving and streamlining the interfaces between Excel and applications is seen as being an objective. The main goals of this project are:G1: Create utilities that can be used with Excel. For example, create a module that allows developers to visualise generated data from an option pricer. Ideally, we should be able to use these utilities in C++, C#, Java and VBA.G2: VBA to C# migration and reusing VBA code in C# projects.G3: Avail of new technology (such as Threading, LINQ and other .NET libraries) in Excel.G4: Interfacing to C++ libraries (e.g. Boost Math, Excel-DNA, DDE) using the C++/CLI interface.G5: Using other qfcl applications with Excel (e.g. Credit Analytics, MC1, FD2). G6: Functional programming (e.g. F#) and Excel.G7: Migration and porting of legacy code to new software environment.Most of the plumbing nitty-gritty has already been done by Robert D and myself. The main challenge is defining standard interfaces between the disparate systems.If you have a feature or requirememts' list, please fee to post them here.Daniel J. Duffy April 2012
