Mike Taulty MIX10 Silverlight 4 Patterns Frameworks

  1. 1. Silverlight 4 frameworks, patterns Mike Taulty Microsoft Ltd @mtaulty mtaulty@microsoft.com http://mtaulty.com
  2. 2. capabilities graphics browser need to know some or all media of this depending on what local machine you’re building layout network styling controls binding animation resources
  3. 3. beyond capabilities rich internet ASP.NET Client Application Services application WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF patterns frameworks *lots of other Silverlight frameworks, libraries, patterns out there – sorry if I missed your favorite
  4. 4. where are we? ASP.NET Client Application Services WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF
  5. 5. ASP.NET Client App Services • ASP.NET services available to Silverlight clients ASP.NET membership roles profiles no specific client libraries here, just add a reference and make the call
  6. 6. enough hot air, do a demo ASP.NET Services from Silverlight
  7. 7. where are we? ASP.NET Client Application Services WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF
  8. 8. RESTful services (in general) Resources HTTP Request URL Res 1 VERB GET Res 2 Payload POST Res 3 PUT Res 4 XML JSON DELETE HTTP Response Status Payload XML JSON
  9. 9. odata • Open Data Protocol ( odata ) – www.odata.org – published under the Open Specification Promise • Extends the AtomPub standard to add – an addressing scheme – a mechanism for schema – alternate representation – JSON – handling for concurrent updates – handling for batched requests
  10. 10. WCF Data Services ( “Astoria” ) http://server/customers(‘alfki’)/Orders?$top=20 metadata Atom implementation of odata for the client and the server
  11. 11. enough hot air, do a demo WCF Data Services from Silverlight
  12. 12. WCF Data Services oData – There’s a Feed for That oData – How to Create a Feed for That To learn about OData go to Pablo/Mike’s talks Tuesday 11.30am Lagoon L Tuesday 3pm Breakers H ( check 2 B sure )
  13. 13. where are we? ASP.NET Client Application Services WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF
  14. 14. WCF RIA Services DomainContext DomainService Stateful view + Bindable Data Stateless CRUD + App Logic class PlateViewDomainService class PlateViewDomainService EntityList<Restaurant> Books { get } Data Model + IQueryable<Restaurant> GetRestaurants() EntityQuery<Restaurant> GetRestaurantQuery() IQueryable<Restaurant> SearchRestaurant(string) EntityQuery<Restaurant> SearchRestaurantQuery(string) Metadata + Shared Code void AddRestaurant(Restaurant) class Restaurant Validation and authorization rules, Data members + Validation Application workflows, … Data Model class Restaurant Rich Internet Application Services Presentation Domain Network Data App Data Access Logic Context Service Logic Layer Under the covers infrastructure DB Note: Slide stolen from Brad Abrams
  15. 15. WCF RIA Services • WCF RIA Services (fka .NET RIA Services) You’re building an application – You’re responsible for both server and client deep in business logic and semantics • WCF Data Services (fka “Astoria”) You’re exposing/acquiring data – You control one side or the other, not both – CRUD among arbitrary producers / consumers logic and semantics are invisible NB: Slide stolen from Brad Abrams
  16. 16. enough hot air, do a demo WCF RIA Services
  17. 17. WCF RIA Services Developing with WCF RIA Services Quickly & Effectively To learn about WCF RIA Services go to Nikhil Kothari’s talk Tuesday 1:30pm Lagoon H ( check 2 B sure )
  18. 18. where are we? ASP.NET Client Application Services WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF
  19. 19. navigation Page • Frame displays a Page authors.xaml <UserControl> Page <Frame Source=“authors.xaml”/> books.xaml • navigation between pages – call Frame.Navigate() or set the Source property – or use a HyperlinkButton ( NavigateUri/TargetName ) • navigation history – call Frame.[Can]Go[Back()/Forward()]
  20. 20. navigation Page • Frame displays a Page authors.xaml <UserControl> Page <Frame Source=“authors.xaml”/> books.xaml • navigation can integrate with the browser – enables hyperlinking into Silverlight content – requires a browser! – requires a hidden iframe on the hosting page – for top level Frames not nested frames
  21. 21. navigation navigate: http://booksite/default.aspx#/authors/steinbeck navigate: /authors/steinbeck Frame UriMapper ContentLoader Uri MappedUri /authors/{author} /views/authors.xaml?surname={author} /{pageName} /views/{pagename.xaml} Asynchronously turns the URI into a Page or UserControl
  22. 22. enough hot air, do a demo Navigation Framework in Silverlight 4
  23. 23. where are we? ASP.NET Client Application Services WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF
  24. 24. search • search engines visiting a page with Silverlight – read robots.txt and sitemap – read/index the page title – read/index the <meta name=“description”/> – read/index the surrounding HTML ( if any ) – will not read XAP or dynamic Silverlight content • approach – alternate content in the <object/> tag – for both search engines & down-level clients
  25. 25. enough hot air, do a demo offering alternate content to search note – I stole this demo, it comes from the WCF RIA Services Code Gallery and is called “Silverlight Store”
  26. 26. WCF RIA Services Search Engine Optimization for MS Silverlight To learn more about SEO go to Brad Abrams’ talk Wednesday 12.00 Lagoon B ( check 2 B sure )
  27. 27. where are we? ASP.NET Client Application Services WCF Data Services WCF RIA Services navigation search extensible applications with MEF
  28. 28. extensible applications with MEF • the Managed Extensibility Framework – “an extensible framework for composing applications from a set of loosely-coupled parts discovered and evolving at run-time“ (mike) • versions – .NET Framework shipping with Silverlight 4 – .NET Framework 4 shipping with VS 2010 – Silverlight 3 & .NET Framework V3.5 Sp1 ( from source on CodePlex )
  29. 29. essential MEF Compose • MEF discovers exports via catalogs – several “in box” catalogs plus many extensibility points – supports available exports changing at runtime • and/or can be handed component instances
  30. 30. one application of MEF MyApp.xap initial, small download Extras.xap
  31. 31. enough hot air, do a demo the Managed Extensibility Framework
