OData Consumer App Certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to MSDN articles and Build Conference videos, consuming OData services from Metro Style apps should be supported -- with the only catch being that Visual Studio's "Add Service Reference" cannot currently handle OData services. The mentioned build video shows a workaround that uses the DataSvcUtil tool for code generation, and manual referencing of assemblies such as System.Data.Services.Client. Doing so, however, causes the "Windows App Cert Kit" to fail the app from being certified for the Windows Store on the grounds that it uses non Metro API binaries.
    Will my app still be allowed in the store, despite this automated test failing, on the basis that metro styled apps are supposed to be allowed to consume OData services?
