       The easiest way to create
      modern business applications
           for the enterprise


• Learn more at the LightSwitch Developer Center
   • http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lightswitch/default.aspx
Motivation for LightSwitch
• LightSwitch is a development tool that
    Is designed to be used by business users
         In the same way they are using Excel and Access today
    Is designed to be used by developers
         Apps can be transitioned to devs if they grow beyond the workgroup
    Has built-in “plumbing” to handle common application requirements
    Uses the latest Microsoft technologies
         HTML5, JavaScript, Silverlight, Entity Framework, WCF, SQL Server
      Uses well-known architectural patters
      Builds scalable applications
      Is extensible
      Supports Wizard driven deployment
LightSwitch Simplifies Development
• Data
    Multiple sources / kinds (including SharePoint)
    Entity model
• Screens
    No markup solution
    Extensible controls
    Extensible layouts
• Rules and validation
    Write once, execute everywhere

The LightSwitch Development Experience
DEMO
Introduction to Visual Studio
LightSwitch
Entities
• Can be local (SQL Server Express) or attached (SQL
  Server, SQL Azure, SharePoint, WCF RIA service)
• Can create relationships within and across data sources
• Custom business types
    Provide validation and formatting
• Calculated properties
    Write code to generate value
• Can validate at the entity or property level
Screens
• Variety of built in screens
    New, search, details, editable grid, list and details
• Can use auto-generated screens for adding/editing or
  create your own
• Developers can modify screens at design-time and runtime
• Always based on queries
• Generated screens do not expose XAML
    You can use Silverlight controls you create yourself
    You can add UI elements packaged as extensions
Queries
• LightSwitch creates queries automatically
    Select * query is a collection, eg. CustomerCollection
    Select where query is a detail, eg. CustomerDetail
• You can edit existing queries
    Filter, sort, add parameters
• You can create new queries
• You can base queries on other queries
The LightSwitch Development Experience
DEMO
Entities, Screens, Queries,
and Code
Access Control
• Authentication
    LightSwitch supports Windows and Forms authentication
• Authorization
    Check if the user is allowed to do something
    Define permissions and check them in code at entity
     and property level
    Permissions are granted through administration screens
Access Control
•   Permissions are defined by the developer
•   The application’s administrator(s) define(s) users and roles
•   Permissions are assigned to roles
•   Users are assigned to roles
•   A user’s effective permissions are the combined
    permissions assigned to their roles
Deployment Options
• 2-tier desktop application
    Application runs entirely on user’s computer
• 3-tier desktop application
    User interface runs on user’s computer
    Middle-tier components run on Internet Information
     Services (IIS) or Windows Azure
• 3-tier web application
    User interface is browser based
    Middle-tier components run on IIS or Windows Azure
