Product Description

This e-book is based on SilverlightShow 8-part article series 'Developing Real-world Applications with LightSwitch’.

From the author:

In 2010, Microsoft announced LightSwitch, a product aimed at developing Line-of-Business applications with ease. In July 2011, the beta tag was finally removed from the product as Microsoft officially introduced Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011 as a new member of the Visual Studio family. Many however are still unsure about the product. Questions crossing a lot of minds include “Is it something for me?”, “What can I do with it?”, “Where should I use it?”, “Is it more than Microsoft Access?”, “Am I limited to what’s in the box?” and quite a few more.

For this reason, I have decided that a few articles should be in place to give you a clear understanding of LightSwitch. I won’t be saying that you should LightSwitch for this or that. Using a sample application we will build throughout the series, I will try giving you an overview of how we can use it to build a real-world application. By reading these articles, I hope you’ll be able to make up your mind whether or not LightSwitch is something for you.

More specifically, I plan the following topics to be tackled along the way:

  • What is LightSwitch and where I see it being useful
  • The concepts of a LightSwitch application
  • Data in more detail
  • Screens in more detail
  • Queries in more detail
  • Writing business logic and validation
  • Managing security in a LightSwitch application
  • Deploying a LightSwitch application
  • Extensions - what and how
  • Using custom Silverlight controls in LightSwitch
  • Adapting the LightSwitch UI to your needs
  • Using RIA Services
