    • Huge step forward from SL 1

    • Lays the foundation for what comes next
  • What platform for your business app? Richness Reach
  • What makes a business app tick?
    • Business apps are almost universally about working with data in some shape or form.
    • At it’s a heart, a business app needs:
      • A way to move data between tiers
      • A way to shape data (sort, filter, etc..)
      • A way to bind & display data
      • A way to soundly apply business logic
  • Moving Data – Simple Cases
    • Browser integrated networking stack
      • Cookie Support
      • Make direct HTTP requests (e.g. RSS Feeds)
    • Complete Service stack
      • Use WCF to build SOAP or REST services
      • Simple “Add Service Reference” experience to consume
      • Use WebClient to consume REST and Plain-Old-XML
  • Moving Data – Advanced Cases
    • Cross-domain Support
      • Requests constrained to same domain by default
      • Cross domain enabled via server side policy file
    • 2-Way communication
      • Sockets – Low level transport
      • WCF Duplex – HTTP pull based messaging
    • ADO.NET Data Services
      • Easy way to expose & consume data via REST
