If someone is taking a code first approach and then adding RIA services on top of that, what are the disadvantages?
Basically, I've had three different developers tell me that based on the 200+ tables and data intensive business logic we require; that it would be better to implement using a "Code First" method for the data access layer with RIA service with the business logic.
Their points are:
1) Our data structure is more complex that LightSwitch is designed to handle. 100+ main tables with 100+ many to many tables.
2) The business logic one computation will require accessing 10 tables and reading 150-200 records to "compile" the answer.
3) The business logic uses a "meta data" approach which requires RIA. No way to do it in Lightswitch.
