And thanx for the fast answer, that's good customer support !
Okey, we/i will go through the code some more.
Yep, soa it is but we have some need for WCF. Anyway, if the T4 code is 'easy' to follow it probably will not be all to much work to wire it up ( says a optimistic person until wcf peculities strikes :-) so still interested in the Pro version.
Ps in the PIA4.5 solution, DataObjects project's Settings there is an errounious 'leftower' setting for the "ActionConnectionString' to an local hd. Should probably be set to a relativ ref ??

No decision has been made, but we will review the inclusion of WCF in the next release.
As far as the PRO version, it comes with two code generators that will automatically generate 1) the Data Access, Business Object and Repository layers, and a 2) Web API seed app.
When going over the Spark (Art Shop) reference application you will get a good understanding of the layers (essentially the entire Art.Domain project) and the Web API seed app (the Art.REST project).
With respect to your SOA question, the PRO Design Pattern Framework 4.5 supports SOA, but not through WCF but based on the new Web API.
Hope this helps.

I have only looked at the stuff for a day or two. Looks great but have to agree that it would be nice to have the WCF resurrected.
In our part of the world this is something that more or less have to be part of the ecosystem. (Not saying that RESTful is not needed... :-)
We are thinking about to get the PRO Design Patterns version, is the SOA service part of the generator stuff?
Anyway great product so far.
