You may have heard today the Windows Phone developer tools are final. So now you may be wondering...since Windows Phone is basically Silverlight 3, does that mean you can use ComponentOne Silverlight 3 controls in WP7 apps?
A previewer of the ComponentOne OLAP for Silverlight Beta controls sent me a link to a site he made using the controls. He's allowed me to show some screenshots and describe the functionality a bit.
Creating your app the best, cleanest way from the start is everyone's main objective when starting out or starting over. Everyone strives for that "n-tier" architecture in their application design, and by that I mean having each tier of the application in its own separate and distinct layer (presentation, data, business, etc). This architecture leads to cleaner designs and scalability because developers only have to modify or add specific layers when it comes time to change the UI screens or the underlying technology, etc. A full-blown rewrite is no longer necessary.
The short answer is both yes and no. We can use SQL Azure as the data source, hosting the viewer in ASP.NET, Win Forms or WPF applications with very little issue. However, the ASP.NET Ajax viewer does not work on Azure at this time. We are scheduling the work to provide complete support for Azure, and I'll update this post when there is progress.
