silverlight with Database and WCF

Aug 17, 2009 at 3:23 PM

I need some clarifications on Silverlight.

Is it possible to retrieve data from the database without using LINQ in silverlight? I've to get the data from Sqlserver 2005 by writing a WCF service. But I neednot use the LINQ to SQL.

I used the WCF service which has a operation contract that returns a list. I bind the list to silverlight combobox control it gives the some error.

Can anyone tell me the way how to create a WCF service to get the data from the database and using that service reference how to bind the data to the silverlight controls in silverlight application.
