Release Notes

Announcement: WCF Web API is now ASP.NET Web API! ASP.NET Web API released with ASP.NET MVC 4 Beta. The WCF Web API and WCF support for jQuery content on this site wll removed by the end of 2012.

This release includes BigShelf, the sample application that Brad Olenick showed during his MIX11 RIA/JS presentation. Check out the BigShelf sample that gets installed under %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SDKs\WCF Support for jQuery\Samples. The above installer has everything you need for you to run the sample and explore the code.

One thing to keep in mind if you want to run the sample is that if you have WCF RIA Services V1 SP1 installed you have to upgrade to WCF RIA Services V1.0 SP2 Preview (April 2011) and WCF RIA Services Toolkit (April 2011), otherwise the sample will fail. If you don't have WCF RIA Services installed on the machine, you don't need to do anything to run the sample.

What's new in this drop:
  • Support for jQuery 1.5.1 (or newer) and minor bug fixes
  • Minor refactoring and bugof BigShelf application to make it easier to understand
  • Removed ContactManager sample as the scenario is now replaced by BigShelf

Great demo app. Very helpful. (Make sure IE 9 is used for this to work well. IE 8 has issues, took me hours to figure out it was browser issue. Works fine in Safari too. )

The app is really good and the remote / local transition is nice, but I'd like to see more doc for the options of data source plug-in - something like http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/. I also ran into some issues (including the exact same "length is null or not an object" error as the other review, it turned out that I had forgotten to remove a call to "render()" and there was a race in my code.

Can't get it to work. Getting an error after logging in on the default.aspx page: Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'length' is null or not an object file: jquery-1.6.1.min.js finally{b=[e,f],c=0}}return this}
