Recipe for a good application CRM 2011- Windows azure Cuisine
- CRM 2011 beta (Online)
- Windows Azure Web Role
- WCF Service
- Claims based authentication (knowledge)
- CRM 2011 SDK
- Silvelight 4
- Visual studio 2010
Take all ingredients , together mix with architecture (like on screen bellow ).
Use plenty of coffe (if you prefer coke that’s fine ) and I almost forgot assing some developers to that project. First you should start with Azure Webrole for hosting WCF service . This WCF service has to communicate with CRM 2011 online so you need to season that with claims based authentication be careful it’s a bit challenging (DeviceID has to be generated etc.), When all authentication problems are cooked , add some Silvelight app I recommend custom bindings , Update ServiceReferences.ClientConfig to yourname.cloudapp.net domain and then create azure package and publish that on Azure. Don;t forget to copy Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll then invite customer and enjoy .
I tested that recipe and effect it’s preety amazing.
