Creating and Using RIA Services
What is RIA Services? The full name is actually Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) RIA Services, which is a bit of a mouthful, so it’s usually referred to as just RIA Services (pronounced reeya, not R-I-A, as some people tend to do). In essence, RIA Services provides a set of server components and ASP.NET extensions that simplify the n-tier application development process, making applications almost as easy to develop as if they were running on a single tier. This is a large part of how LightSwitch does its magic.
