    In the previous part of this tutorial we showed you how to build a simple line chart which loads its data from an exported Excel XML Spreadsheet or from a serialized list of points (in XML format). In this part we will show how to load chart data from an Astoria service.

    Topics covered:
    • creating ADO.NET Entity Data Model
    • creating Astoria service
    • using Astoria service using the Astoria client for Silverlight

    What is Astoria anyway?

    Astoria is the code name of a new Microsoft technology that enables applications to expose data as a data service that can be consumed by web clients over HTTP.

    As a new technology Silverlight 1.1 in its alpha version doesn’t allow to be used in real world applications, except for media players. We have a lot of examples demonstrating what is possible to be done in 1.1, but nothing really useful.
    We, at, think that it will be nice to have something useful that will help solving common tasks. One of these tasks is to show a simple chart on a web page. This is the first of many articles explaining how this could be done in Silverlight 1.1.
