Using Webservices with Telerik OpenAccess


One of the major issues with querying a webservice with the non-domain model approach to OpenAccess was that if you tried to return a list of objects directly you can’t dispose of your scope!  Ack!

What happens client side is that you get a callback error saying “The ObjectScope is already closed”…bummer I wanted those objects

I had a bunch of tickets go back and forth with the OpenAccess guys at Telerik and they suggested using fetch plans.  I however do not want to setup 40 fetch plans :)

So lets use anon typed in-memory objects…they seem to return fine while allowing me to kill my scope.

So from this:

To this:

So really we’re just re-creating the objects, but you can now dispose of your scope before you return from the webservice with no errors!
