Is Axum compatible with Silverlight 4? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is Axum compatible with Silverlight 4? How can I use the priciples of Axum in a Silverlight 4 design? Are there any examples of this?

  • No, currently Axum only works with the desktop CLR.

    We haven't built any examples of how to "mimic" the Axum principles outside the language itself in .NET code (we have in C++, but that won't help you). The principles of Axum are not directly straight-forward to implement without language support, there's a lot of boiler-plate code to write for channels and domains that achieve the safe isolation, but that is something you want a language to do (which is why we are proposing one).

    The closest you can get without language support is using WCF services and clients.

  • Why can't Axum be used with SL$? What is missing in the SL4 version of the CLR that Axum requires?

  • Our runtime makes use of some of the synchronous runtime APIs that (it is my understanding) are not available in SL4. It wouldn't be very hard to get rid of them, we just haven't made an effort to do so yet.
