  • Hi,

    Microsoft release Winjs to work with WinRT. The WinJS namespace provides special Windows Library for JavaScript functionality, including Promise and xhr.

    Hi Mehmood,

    For Windows Store App that will need to access internet or intranet network to retrieve some data, there is no limitation or rules on how you should build the server-side application/services. Windows Runtime library has provided rich network API support, so that you can use them to access network resources via simple HTTP requests or raw tcp socket connection. For example, suppose your windows store app will retrieve some network data via some HTTP server-side service/endpoint, then you can build the server-side service through one of the following approaches:

    1. You can use WCF REST service to setup an HTTP endpoint which expose the data to client
    2. You can use ASP.NET MVC web API to build the service endpoint
    3. You can also use a raw ASP.NET custom httphandler to expose the certain data

    Whatever means you use, the client-side (windows store app) only need to know the endpoint address and the contract it should use to send request and parse response.
