  3. Provide a server side logging module that would automatically log selected operations.

    Ideally, this would be configured via attributes as well as thru a programmatic API.

  5. EntityManager.getEntityGraph - get a root entity's object graph from cache

    Like the FindEntityGraph method in DevForce (http://drc.ideablade.com/xwiki/bin/view/Documentation/query-working-in-cache), this method would return an array of entities in cache consisting of the root entity and the related entities as specified in the call, perhaps with "expand" syntax. Could use for partial saves as requested in this S.O. post (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13575058/how-can-i-save-a-single-entity-with-entitymanagers-savechanges-method). Also useful for moving graphs between EntityManagers and to browser local storage.

  6. MVC Service (v.3 and v.4)

    Breeze supports Web API today. Our shop uses MVC 3 and MVC 4 ... but not Web API yet. Could Breeze talk to MVC controller methods and exchange JSON data as it does with Web API controllers?

  7. Configure breeze treatment of custom EntityType constructor members

    Today you can extend a Breeze client EntityType by specifying a constructor with custom members - often unmapped properties - and registering the ctor with a MetadataStore. But you can't tell Breeze how it should treat those custom members. This is a request to be able to specify how Breeze treats them, i.e., whether they are serialized locally, serialized to remote service, rewritten for the prevailing model library (e.g., KO), if changes to the property change the EntityState. This request is identified internally as #2099

  9. Support other clients

    Would be nice to develop the server components and then have some type of wizard or generator that could create a portable class library that could target windows 8 and wp8, generating the necessary client classes, metadata etc. Then you add a reference to the PCL client project, getting all the benefits. Basically how ria services was for SL but make breeze work with several clients by using PCL

  10. Show us how to bind to a grid

    LOB apps have grids. Can you show us how to bind a list of Breeze entities to a grid and do filtering, sorting and paging.

  11. for Linux

    I quickly scanned the documentation about installation and found heavy reference to Visual Studio. While I have VS2008 installed on one of my PCs. My day-to-day working machine is a Ubuntu box. Could you show some instruction about using Breeze on a Linux box? Perhaps with Eclipse as the IDE. Or make Breeze available on an online IDE such as JS Fiddle? Thanks.

    Simon,

    Yes, our initial launch shows Breeze using Visual Studio 2012 with a .NET Entity Framework back-end.

    Breeze does not require .NET, but this is currently how we have the data provider hooked up through WebAPI. We are planning to support other back-ends and front-ends, as well as show IDEs other than Visual Studio. Your feedback on UserVoice helps us prioritize these features.

    Thanks for the feedback and your interest in Breeze.

  14. Facilitate chaining of breeze operations within jQuery deferreds

    I'd like to chain together a sequence of Breeze and jQuery async operations. Breeze uses promises from Q.js; jQuery has its own "deferreds". As a front-end developer I'm mostly writing in jQuery. So I'd like an easy way to adapt promises to jQuery deferreds so I can write a bunch of jQuery async commands with an occasional Breeze operation tucked in the middle.

  16. Ability to create an entity cache on the server that's composed of several server-side queries and can be shipped to the client

    This would be especially useful for conserving roundtrips when sending lots of reference list data (color, shape, status) to start an app.
