First of all, I want to tell that English isn't my native language and this is my first post on this forum so I am sorry for any mistakes. I am developing small application that rely on Silverlight 4, Prism 4, MS Enterprise Library 5, WCF RIA Services (I have a database from which I want to retrieve data and pass to Silverlight client) and other Microsoft technologies such as Entity framework as ORM. I knew "pure" WCF Services very well and I hosted them on production computer easily but how can I host each of WCF RIA Services in Windows Server AppFabric as standalone services like ordinary WCF Services. I want to use my wcf ria services in a few silverlight projects not one.

This link has quite a few good tutorials to work through to understand AppFabric and WCF: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/gg675185. There is one that includes calling these services from ASP.NET or Silverlight.

Thank you for the reply but I have already read/watch this tutorials. this tutorials provides overview about "pure" WCF Services (not RIA). I cannot find good tutorial about hosting wcf ria services as a standaolne services (like pure wcf services) on appfabric. I want to first create standalone ria service which facade (service contract) will be repository (CRUD) in which I inject object context generated from entity framework (database first approach). my primary question is that:
IS THERE ANY OTHERS TEMPLATES (METHODS) TO CREATE WCF RIA SERVICE (OTHER THAN SILVERLIGHT BUSSINESS APPLCIATION) THAT WILL HELP ME TO CREATE WCF RIA WITHOUT COUPLING WITH MY SILVERLIGHT APP? I WANT TO PROVIDE IN MY SERVICE LOGIC THAT I WANT TO REFERENCE IN OTHER SILVERLIGHT/ASP.NET SOLUION. I DONT WANT TO COUPLE RIA AND SILVELIGHT IN ONE SOLUTION.
Thanks if anybody can help me giving me advice or link to materials that solve my problem.

What about WCF RIA Service Class Library in VS2010? I read that I cannot host solution created from that template in windows server appfabric. Maybe I am wrong.
