    Silverline has the power to be the ultimate MVC-solution. If anybody wants to use Silverlight in a .NET environment, the best solution is using MVP or MVVM (e.g. Prism), which introduces a ViewModel. Still there is code duplication between the model and the ViewModel. If we want to use Flex in combination with Rails there do exist scaffolding tools, so once you configured everything, your code is generated. But everything is duplicated: code on the server and similar code on the client (your models need to be known).

    With Silverline you can code your complete application on the server, but the code can be run on the client. There is no duplication.

    It is weird that nobody seems to pick this up. I only figured this out a about a month ago. Unfortunately my knowledge of silverlight is a at the moment still bit limited.

    But i see a great future.

    As with javascript the page can be generated on the fly. But with the added bonus of data binding.

    Instead of generating the client.xap each time, we could cache those per "page"/view if needed. And pump in the data. Also using areas of silverlight (e.g. header, footer, menu, body, ...) which are composed should be possible and very useful (like in Prism).
    So, a lot of ideas, i see only possibilities :)

    What i would like to see to get me started, is a simple example, containing a datagrid which is filled up using json or xml and simple pagination. I am presuming this should be pretty easy. From this example it should be pretty easy to make things more generic and get rolling ;)
    I am going to pick up a Silverlight book first!
