Thank you for getting back to me.
1. I was inquiring about reporting capabilities so I would be able to generate/display reports in Silverlight as one would in an ordinary business app for ASP.NET.
My status is trying to decide whether to develop new projects in Silverlight or ASP.NET. Part of my inability to determine which platform would be best is that for example, in the Telerik demo for Silverlight, I see one project sample which shows interactive drag-n-drop for car wheels, but another which shows gridlike functionality.
In my case, projects typically consist of database business-type applications, preferrably using 3-layer design. The interaction the users have is typically never drag-n-drop of car wheels, but perhaps items in a list, going from one to another. Other interaction is simply standard buttons, etc.
I was wanting to know what tools (from Telerik) would be available to me for Silverlight as opposed to what I have now in ASP.NET. I fear developing new projects in ASP.NET (AJAX) only to have them become quickly outdated due to a growing presence/demand of Silverlight.
3. For apps which are database-driven business apps and which use 3-layer architecture, would ASP.NET be the best choice? What advantages are there to developing in Silverlight for this type of app instead? This article seems to point to Silverlight for quite a bit, regardless of project type: http://blackburnian.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!FB8B852EF1AB0B35!1086.entry?ccr=4954&wa=wsignin1.0&sa=569243297
