How can I separate the DTOs/interfaces for individual objects?  Can Telerik ORM create them separately?

I currently use the Channel Factory to create my own proxy without going through SvcUtil or .NET's proxy generator.  This allows me to keep my service interfaces and DTOs in a separate "Contracts" project and only distribute what is absolutely essential to the client application in my nTier product.  Unfortunately, if I want to include ANY of Telerik's DTOs I must either reference the DataService project in my Client project OR pull the Transport.cs file into my "Contracts" project... which means that my entire schema is exposed to anyone with a decompiler.

Please help.

Hello Greg, 

 The Add OpenAccess Service wizard is simply a tool for generating a service, should you choose to you can always move the generated DTO classes (or interfaces) in a separate project/assembly. It will be a little troublesome when updating the service using the wizard but is still the way to go. 

There is also something else, once you have a service generated and running, and simply add a reference to that service using the Add Service Reference option in Visual Studio, by default you will have created proxy objects on the client that you will use. There isn't a need to reuse same interfaces or DTOs on the client, given that similar ones will be created for you. So a customer using your application will only be able to decompile the proxy classes that are exposed from your service. 

I hope this is helpful, do let us know if you need something else. 
 
Kind regards,
