Petr Vozak    —       —    Article

8 - Summary

Petr Vozak    —       —    Article
Let's make a summary of all described communication methods.

6 - Data communication - HTTP-Based Services

Petr Vozak    —       —    Article
HTTP-based services do not require to create a proxy class. You can access them directly using HTTP requests. Silverlight provides two methods for sending HTTP requests: WebClient and HttpWebRequest.

4 - Data communication - Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)

Petr Vozak    —       —    Article
WCF "web services" are part of a much broader spectrum of remote communication enabled through WCF. You will get a much higher degree of flexibility doing things in WCF. ASMX is older than WCF, and anything ASMX can do so can WCF (and more).

2 - Demo application

Petr Vozak    —       —    Article
For the purpose of the tutorial I have created simple Silverlight application called "SilverlightDemo" which brings you the possibility to find specified users.

1 - Synchronization and cross-domain access

Petr Vozak    —       —    Article
You will be disappointed if you think about the direct access to the database - you can't communicate with database directly from Silverlight. Moreover, objects like DataSet, DataTable and others are unknown for it. The only way is to use specialized services and requests which enable you to get the data from database. No matter which one of the method you choose, be aware of two important facts - synchronization and cross-domain access.
