Hi,
new user, new questions :)

- What the simple steps to get a simple working Silverligtht app using openRIA  ?
- Can the tutorials for RIA service be used for OpenRIA ?
- what the main benefits of OpenRia over ria that come with VS2013 ?


thanks and good day

PS : I am really happy to see that Silverlight is still alive contrary to almost everybody claims on the web ;)

The same tutorials for WCF RIA Services work for Open RIA Services. The main change is that RIA Link is a new right click menu on the project file, the namespaces are different, and all libraries are delivered from NuGet.

The main benefits are EF 6 and Visual Studio 2013 support. There are a many other smaller changes, if you look through the resolved issues on Codeplex and the accepted pull requests you can see the changes that have been made including async support.

In VS2013 you install the Open RIA Services tooling from the Visual Studio Gallery (From inside VS Tools->Extensions and Updates->Online->Search for Open RIA Services)

This adds the same templates that WCF RIA Services had to Visual Studio including the Domain Service Wizard.

There is a blog entry covering the conversion process at http://www.openriaservices.net/blog.aspx?BlogSlug=The-Open-RIA-Services-Blog&BlogPostId=1017
