      I love your videos. I really do, in particular the ones from PRISM.


      but here I have two comments. for us, people that wants to learn, but it is a little difficult to know all the tricks. so I am going to give a trick for this video.


      in the service initialization put this line. Althought it is in the video, it won't be in your project  when you are connecting your own database, and you can easily forget.


      public static void InitializeService(DataServiceConfiguration config)
                  config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("*", EntitySetRights.All);


      this make the entities appear when you are browsing service.svc



      when you are seeing an specific table and you only get the feed page.


      go to tools->Internet Options->Content->Settings.....


      uncheck the option.

      thanks a lot mike. I appreciated all your videos.
