This e-book collects the 2 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Silverlight WCF RIA Services: Strategies for handling your Domain Context', together with source code.

A lot of business applications that are being developed in Silverlight today are built with the help of WCF RIA Services. This should come as no surprise, as it’s a really powerful, extensible framework which provides us with a lot of features out of the box (validation, authentication, authorization, …) that otherwise would require quite a lot of custom code, workarounds & plumbing. In WCF RIA Services, you’re going to be working with a client-side Domain Context instance. This e-book will look into a few strategies on working with this Domain Context, and is accompanied by a demo & source code, available in the downloadable package.
