WCF & Silverlight

Post icon  Posted 11 December 2009 - 04:56 PM

As i am new to the WCF framework, i was wondering how i would incorporate a login structure that would interact with Silverlight

Current need.

I have a login usercontrol in silverlight and i want to enable the ability for someone to input their credentials and then through the WCF service, have them authenticated.

I am a little confused with the Events and how to incorporate them for the validation.

In the past i have used BLL/DAL interaction with ASP websites but am in need of using the WCF for the same procedure.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

What kind of database system are you wanting them authenticated against?

What have you tried?

It will be a very simple DBMS ( MSSQL or MySQL). I know you cant directly access the DBMS from Silverlight but through some research i found that you can attach to a WCF Svc and communicate via this gateway. Problem is that most of the services return basically Record Set results. I am interested in having some of the data information returning only Boolean or Numeric values instead of a full record-set of values.

I am new to the whole WCF side of things and am not really educated on the framework enough to play with it. Although it resembles alot of the DAL/BLL relationship, with a really big twist.

If you need to know what the need is for is a active game. Its a little thing im working on. Nothing professional, only to play with.

Does this help? This is using WCF in a Silverlight application for authentication purposes.
