I just came across this post and the only way to describe it .... is : "Beautiful and just what we were looking to hear"
As you can see on our LightSwitch post here
Microsoft LightSwitch will not have a reporting engine (they already made that public) on it's first final Release for Version 1 (we speculate the date will be around May 2011) , but without reporting for it..
We think the LS Dev. Team could be waiting for Silverlight 5 future
super printing ability to create the LightSwitch reporting engine, thus
is they wait for SL5 they will have to delay the release of LightSwitch
1.0... nobody outside Microsoft knows for sure, we can only speculate.
By judging by the decisions the LightSwitch Development team has taken up to now;
(the best possible decision balancing the fact that we all want LS as soon as possible becasue it reduces the development time in 1/10, that is made to build the best possible Business Application seeking performance )
Now, a lot of us, have customers asking for LightSwitch applications, our only option and hope is reporting is Telerik (judging for the ability in which Telerik handle XAML for their controls always seeking performance and beauty is unprecedented ),
I read Telerik is considering LightSwitch.... but as you can see the above Microsoft LightSwitch post, many, if not thousands (remember that is Microsoft) will seek Telerik for LightSwitch, first desperately for the reporting, then for your RAD suite becasue LightSwitch will have a SHell (beta 2) that will allow us to create a type of Dashboard using controls, and who has the best controls... Telerik
is anything you could share on the reporting issue working closely with LightSwitch aside from what is already said on this great post ?
