Astoria and Silverlight RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there

    I am considering posibility of using Astoria services with my Silverlight application. I am interested in that new 100 meg offer that's out there working together with the silverlight streaming service launched by Microsoft earlier. My question is whether I can use Astoria through that service from my Silverlight application hosted on the Silverlight streaming server? My concern is that this will be classified as a cross domain request... I hope this makes sense.

    Thank you

    Hi,

     

    Unfortunately that won't work for now. Silverlight streaming applications are hosted in a different domain from Astoria services which are at astoria.sandbox.live.com, so if you try to access the Astoria service it would count as cross-domain access.

     

    I believe this will become a more and more common scenario, and we'll look at what we can do, but we don't have anything specific yet.
