  1. Update SaveChangesCore to allow custom validation errors to be returned

    Adding Custom Validation Attributes (e.g. "[MyCustomAttribute]") to your model class causes the SaveChangesCore() method to throw an 'ArgumentNullException' instead of the expected 'ValidationException' when the model Custom Validation Attribute is invalid. This is because the exception message formatting code assumes that 'key.EntityKeyValues' will never be null, which apparently is not the case when a Custom Validator prevents the model from being saved. It would be nice to correct the code to assume 'key.EntityKeyValues' can be null so that the server-side validation exception message can at least be returned to the client. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14332833/breeze-js-not-returning-custom-validation-error-messages-from-server for more details.

  5. Try to coerce string bindings to a data property's data type

    Knockout binding of textbox to an integer data property can be fail validation because it sets the property with a string. Breeze, which knows the property's datatype, should attempt to parse the string to that datatype. Extend this idea to all datatypes (including date) and for all model libraries.

    As of Breeze 0.80.2, automatic datatype coercion is now applied when setting any Breeze ‘entity’ properties.

    This means, for example, that when setting a string to a numeric or date field that Breeze will attempt to coerce the value to the correct datatype before assignment.

  6. I can use asp.net web api with other object then EF.

    In web api how i can use other objects not only EF.

  7. Support for MongoDb out of the box like EF

    I would like support for other popular noSql databases like MongoDB and RavenDB. If this can already be supported then just some proper documentation on how it can be achieved and some supporting example projects would be very helpful. Thanks.

  9. Correct the instructions on this page

    EFContextProvider constructor has been updated to not need the "dbconnectionname" - the instructions still have that.

    SaveChanges() has changed to use JObject, so change it from JArray

  16. Angularjs support

    I'm curious as to what you guys are cooking up for Angular...It seems like it could in theory be pretty easy as angular binds to plain objects, but I'm sure there are plenty of wrinkles. Glad we have brilliant minds such as yourselves to figure this stuff out!
    Just off the top of my head I'm thinking in the query promise callback you could set the array to what forEach is observing via an angular.apply() call, since we're outside of angular. Or better yet somehow integrate the promise with forEach since this is what angular uses if I remember correctly.…

  17. Support $inlinecount in queries

    The OData 2.0 spec describes the $inlinecount parameter (http://www.odata.org/documentation/uri-conventions#InlinecountSystemQueryOption) as a way to include with query results the count of all records that satisfy the filter clause without respect to the paging parameters (top and skip) that may be in the query request.

    0.75.1 is now live, and adds an ’inlineCount" method to the EntityQuery.

    This provides support for providing, in addition to standard query results, the count of records that would be returned by this query if no ‘skip’ or ‘take’ option were included on the query.

    In other words, the count is calculated after applying any filters/where clauses but before any skip/take operations.

    See the API Docs for more details. Both OData and WebApi endpoints are supported with this feature.

  18. Mocking Data Calls

    Allow for Breeze's data service calls to be able to be overridden with mock data calls, so data can be seen without needs to make actual ajax calls for designing and testing. Similar to amplify's model and using mockJSON with it.

    Breeze 1.3 adds named saves.

    By default the EntityManager.saveChanges method sends a save request to an endpoint called “SaveChanges”. With “Named Save”, you can target a different server endpoint such as an arbitrarily named action method on another Web API controller. There are two new properties on the SaveOptions class. A resourceName (for the action method) and a dataService (for targeting a different controller).
