WCF RIA Services Preview and the Visual Studio 2010 RC

Warning: This is my experimentation and cannot be taken as a recommendation !

I gave it to my temptation and installed the Visual Studio 2010 RC despite having a lot of upcoming WCF RIA Services talks.  (One is scheduled right tomorrow  and it would be disastrous to try anything fancy)

Much has been explained around the non-availability of Silverlight 4 Tools updated version for this RC release and subsequently the inability to work with WCF RIA Services and SL4.  Infact, Tim Heuer has put up a nice FAQ on VS 2010 RC and Silverlight Development

However, I went ahead and installed VS 2010 RC and the WCF RIA Services Preview for VS 2010 Beta 2, hoping to get it work at least for catering to ASP.NET Development. 

Much to my surprise, it did work! I could just grab the DLLs from C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\RIA Services\v1.0\Libraries\Server onto my project reference and grab the System.Web.DomainServices.WebControls.dll file onto my toolbox and then was able to use the DomainDataSource control in the Webform.  Similarly the “Domain Service Class” template was also available as a “Add – New Item” which I could use to generate the middle tier.  I have written a detailed step by step on this in my earlier post

However, note that, this only works and doesn’t provide any warranty.  Also, the SL4 Tools don’t work which means, this is not going to help on the Silverlight development front.

I will be posting my first hand experience with the RC build related to web development and other general features in a separate post.  Till then,

Cheers !!!

This service is the best service that is launched by the Microsoft. It simplifies the traditional n-tier application pattern by bringing together the ASP.NET and Silverlight platforms using WCF. It also provides end-to-end support for common tasks such as data validation, authentication and roles by integrating with Silverlight components on the client and ASP.NET on the mid-tier.

I appreciate this. I'll admit, I'm a little less excited about getting the RC installed than I was 5 minutes ago, but I would've been pretty ticked if I went through the effort and couldn't get any SL4 stuff working.

Now you will see the difference and the reason why I propose this way. You cannot find a folder called ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Tools\Bin’ for VS 2008.

Visual Studio 2010 is a very good tool, with a lot of new services but it still needs tuning. I'm sure that all the problems will be solved soon and will become very popular.
