Can I (somehow) use Rx from a non-Rx-Client (i.e. pure REST etc.) from an .NET Micro Framework or CF

Hi, I recognize why Rx is not itself available on the .NET Micro Framework or Compact Framework. However, I was wondering if anybody can provide an example of a non-Rx client pushing to an Rx-server. Is there a simplified subset of the Rx protocol that we can generate using widely-available WebRequests/REST technology on the .NET MF client to push remote events to the Rx-server and still be able to use Rx glory on the server (MVC for example).
thanks for a quick tip. Is this a hair-brained idea? Any other brilliant ideas? :-)

Yes, it's possible, but I am not sure what you'd have to do to get things running, since I haven't touched either .NET Micro or the Compact Framework for years now.
As for pushing queries to the server, check out PushQA - it's an IQbservable implementation that uses REST and OData ... at the very least, you can get some good ideas about how you might do it. Note that on the client side, he shows you can easily use SignalR on the client side, so you do not need client side Rx libraries, but it makes things a lot nicer, imo. :)
