A set of short screencasts providing a "tour" of the network capabilites in the Silverlight 4 beta. We'll look at raw HTTP access, socket access and WCF capabilities.

The next video in this series is here and the previous videos are;

  • Am I thinking right? I can ues the HttpWebRequest/Response APIs to send a querry to the server,  run the querry over a large XML file on the server and returns just the xml nodes I wish to display/manupulte on the client.  A poor mans data base call? Is there anything really wrong with doing this?

    Yes, you can do that if you like. Or you can use WCF and do a similar thing via SOAP services and get a nicer programming model. Or you can use a framework like WCF Data Services to expose a data model ( Entity Framework/LINQ to SQL/Custom ) from the server side over easy to access RESTful services including a standard for how a URI can represent the query over that data. WCF RIA Services would be another choice at a higher level of abstraction stil..


    Lots of choices...
