WCF Data Services Template RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate and I installed Entity Framework 4.1. The file AdoNetDataServiceCSharpWap.zip exists in the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Web\1033\. But when I click add Add > New Project, I can't find a "WCF Data Services" project template, including in the Web category. How can I create a WCF Data Services project and get started with OData?

  • WCF Data Services ends up being an item in a project, which is most always an ASP.NET Web application. When you create a new project by selecting ASP.NET Web Application from the New Project Web templates, then under project, click Add New Item, and select WCF Data Service from the Web templates.

    For more information, see the topic Creating the Data Service in the WCF Data Services quickstart.
