What does the LightSwitch news mean for you?
As Microsoft said, you probably don't want to begin creating new applications in LightSwitch, since it'll only compound your migration work later. We know you have many reasons for supporting your current applications, from studying the ROI of migration all the way to building an entirely new business app on a new platform or technology.
With that in mind, ComponentOne Studio will continue offering its LightSwitch Edition in maintenance mode for the foreseeable future. While we won't be adding new features or controls, you can expect the same level of support that we currently offer our current Silverlight and ActiveX subscribers: critical bug fixes, forum support, and phone support if you have Platinum.
You can upgrade to a full suite of Wijmo and C1Studio controls (including native mobile controls) at http://www.componentone.com/Ultimate.
We've already published several white papers on migration to Wijmo:
- White Paper: Migrating from Silverlight to Wijmo 5
- Migrating from XAML to HTML5 with Wijmo
- Make a Smooth Transition to HTML5 using MVVM
Be on the lookout for more information on migrating from LightSwitch to HTML5 using Wijmo controls.
Migrating LightSwitch to PowerApps
Whether you're a developer or not, ComponentOne Studio will continue supporting LightSwitch (and you).
