Hosting Silverlight/PivotViewer in SharePoint 2010


  • I've been working on a data visualization tool using the PivotViewer control in Silverlight, and I want to deploy it to the company intranet so that I can integrate it with the document library it references.  I'm not trying to do anything dynamic just yet, I just can't figure out how to load my PivotViewer collection onto the server such that the Silverlight app can see it.

    I've tested the Silverlight webpart with a simple 'Hello World' app, and got that to work, but I can't figure out how to load data external to the XAP from SilverLight.  Specifically, I don't know what I am supposed to do with the DeepZoom image collection - its in a structured, heirarchical folder structure, but it has way too many items for me to batch upload.

    What is the Best Practice here?  Is there some other way to load my PivotViewer data into SharePoint, or does it need to be hosted separately, locally by IIS?
