I have tried to use RIA a few times on the project frameowrk that I am using, but it just doesn't quite fit. The one thing that I do like is that I can add an attribute and get involved in the proxy generation.
I have looked at trying to create a custom wcf proxy gen based on the standard one (Microsoft.VisualStudio.Editors 10.0.0.0) but not knowing VS and EnvDTE very well I am a bit lost. What I really want is to have complete control over the proxy generation such that I can add an attribute onto my regular WCF service (non-RIA) and this points to a type in my project (so I can test) and that this gives me the proxy and the related class that its based on such that I can add methods or attributes or anything.
Does this make sense? How difficult would it be and is it feasible to do from the existing WCF proxy gen or should I start higher up the chain than the svcmap file.
Sorry if this seems unrelated...
Keep up the videos btw, love the style
