  1. Use websockets/signalr to push updated objects instantly out to the client cache

    On the client side, objects can get stale if they are frequently updated. Instead of requiring constant polling to see if entities have changed, allow updates to be pushed from the server out to the client cache. That change would in turn trigger knockout bindings so that the HTML instantly updates.

  2. Allow for the filtering of Expands

    It would be most helpful if the results of an Expand could be filtered on the server-side. I.e, if you could have a particular Expand only ever include specific records. This would come in particular use when an institution utilizes "soft deletes", or needs to further filter those expanded records to only include those that should be visible by the current user.

  5. Create function to translate error messages

    it would be possible to include a function to breeze similar to the included in knockout-validation to translate error messages:

    //quick function to override rule messages
    ko.validation.localize = function (msgTranslations) {

    var msg, rule;

    //loop the properties in the object and assign the msg to the rule
    for (rule in msgTranslations) {
    if (ko.validation.rules.hasOwnProperty(rule)) {
    ko.validation.rules[rule].message = msgTranslations[rule];
    }
    }

    };

  6. To add the java backend for the breezejs.

  7. Provide a paired client side/server side validation module that would make it easier to apply the same custom validations on both the server

    This module would also have access to the user credentials associated with the end user performing the operation to be validated. Ideally, this would be configured via attributes as well as thru a programmatic API.

  11. Provide Observable ErrorMessage at entity level & at Collection Level so that error messages can be displayed next to entity and then again

    IN LOB application it is very critical to display error message next to the field in error as well as summary of errors.

    When Binding the collection to HTML table, expose the Error Collection so that error message can be displayed in data-bind. This should be observable so that it HTML markup is updated dynamically when errors occurs and is cleared when error are corrected.

    Similar observable error collection as List level to display summary of error as well. since this is summary, when clicking on error item, ability to set focus to the Editable filed in HTML table would…

  12. QueryInterceptors and ChangeInterceptor are needed to implement Security

    One needs to write lots of code to implement query and change interception to EF context. With interceptors we can easily do this with Breeze like WCF Data Services.

  13. 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

  14. Transparent local vs server queries.

    I don't want to distinguish between local and server data. I'd like the framework to work out the cache state and refresh as necessary based on hints I provide - such as FIFO, LIFO, or callbacks for conflicts.

  15. function parameters in query clauses

    Add ability to pass functions into where clauses, orderBy clauses, etc., instead of strings, for better intellisense and TypeScript type support.

  16. 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.

  18. Paged query combining remote and cached data

    A Breeze plugin that pages a query combining remote and cached data in the query results. The paging strategy factors in pending, unsaved changes that could affect sort order (e.g., a name change), exclusion of entities marked for delete, and new entities that qualify for inclusion in the result. Could base it on the DevForce.EntityQueryPager (http://drc.ideablade.com/xwiki/bin/view/Documentation/query-paging)

  20. Support DevForce models????

    We have a lot invested in devforce models and the thought of having to maintain multiple models is troubling. I assume it is the saves that are the issue because I'm able to query the df entities without issue.
