2.12.Creating A Simple .NET RIA Services Application To Display Data From Virtuoso

.NET RIA Services is a new framework from Microsoft that simplifies the development of n-tier web applications. A typical application will consist of a presentation layer, application logic and a data access layer. In these examples a combination of Silverlight 3 and .NET RIA Services will provide the presentation layer and application layer while the data will reside in Virtuoso and be accessed using the Virtuoso ADO.NET provider. The first example demonstrates how to display data from the Employee table in the Demo database in a grid on a web page. The second example shows how to display IRIs from the Linked Data Views of the demo data. The IRIs are used to create hyperlinks that are the starting point for exploring the linked data.
