WCF RIA Services makes it simple to query and update data from your Silverlight application, as well as invoke other functionality on the server side. But most examples show using it with the built-in support for directly querying Entity Framework domain models where the entity classes are code generated for you.

In this webinar, Brian explains how you can mix WCF RIA Services with the new Code First features of Entity Framework 4, or just get your data from somewhere else such as flat files, but still benefit from the power of RIA Services for the client side.

    On a similar note in use of POCO objects, is there a way to share a POCO object between the silverlight and host if the POCO object is not actually returned from any domain service? we have a POCO schema class that we want to use in the UI that goes along with the object being returned from our domain service and we havent found a way to get the silverlight app to know about it short of either referencing a silverlight version of the schema library or having a domain service method that just returns a new instance of the second class (and has no real code).

    I'd like to come up with a better way to allow the silverlight app to see the Class2 schema, but so far can't come up with anything. Ideas? I also tried

    so for example our domain service might look like this:

    public Class1 GetTheClass1()
        //do some actual code here and return object
        return WCFService.GetTheClass1();

    public Class2 GetTheClass2()
       //this is just a dummy method so code generator creates the Class2 schema so silverlight app can see it
      return new Class2();
