    Hi Guys,

    New to Telerik - Trying to get an Oracle database accessing via a WPF application and don't see any projects listed in the 'Project to Host the Service' in the Data Services Wizard.

    I am using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.  Latest version of Telerik Premium Collection (just purchased) and have performed a Reverse Mapping of an Oracle database in a DAL project.  (That worked just fine it appears.)

    Now, if I understand things correctly I should be able to run the Data Services Wizard to obtain access to the DAL project.  When opening DSW, I see the 4 projects in the my Solution.  However, I do NOT see any projects down in the lower Hosting area.  Wondering what I've done wrong or if I've hit a bug of some sort.

    Note that I have projects nested into various Solution folders.  That shouldn't have any bearing should it?  I've also Cleaned and Rebuilt the entire Solution.  Still no go.

    Sure would appreciate a timely response - on a tight deadline here.

    Many thanks & Best regards...Bob

    Hi Bob,

    The DSW is using a filter over the output projects to facilitate selecting the suitable project for hosting the service.
    Ccurrently the allowed project types are WebSite (C# & VB), Web application (C# & VB).
    If I correctly understand your problem, you most probably do not have a project of suitable type in your solution. Please add a project of one of the types above and then reopen the wizard again.

    Sincerely yours,

    But what if I want to host the WCF service in a WPF application?  How is that accomplished with the wizard?

    Hi Kwabena,

    Currently there is no automated way provided by the Data Services Wizard to allow the hosting of a service in a WPF application. As previously stated, the allowed project types for service hosting are Web application and Website. With the WPF application as a host the developer must implement additional code which can be different among application scenarios. With the Web application and Website the configuration is minimal and these project types capture the most typical scenarios for hosting a service. You can always generate the service code in one of the allowed project types and later migrate it with the appropriate host configuration implementation. We do not have plans to extend the project types for hosting a service in the near future but we may consider an improvement in this direction at some point later. 

    Best wishes,
