  2. Add a closing bracket

    There is a closing bracket missing on this page:
    http://www.breezejs.com/documentation/customizing-ajax

    Line 7 in the second code block:
    if (isFooRequest(xhr))

    It's no big deal but thought I'd let you know...

  3. why the change in BreezeWebApiConfig?

    I just upgraded from 1.3.0 to 1.3.1 and there appears to be a change in the Routing Template from "api/{controller}/{action}" to "breeze/{controller}/{action}". This caused some confusion as it broke my application as the route was changed. Once I found the issue it was fine but there was nothing in the release notes that explained that there was a change. As I used the default routing that came with the nuget package BreezeWebApiConfig.cs got updated automatically which caused the issue. In future please include routing changes into the release notes.

  4. Examples that uses other backends.

    You know that many developers have already loved Breeze.js but that's not it. It has the potential to be a really great technology for the new breeds of developers (beginners)...

    I'd like to suggest to include examples on how Breeze.js works with other backend technologies such as Java, PHP, etc..

    Changing status to complete.

    Our NodeJS/MongoDB sample was added in 1.4.0, and our Ruby sample went live shortly before 1.4.2.
    ________

    Work is well underway on a Java backend for Breeze, using Hibernate and JAX-RS. Please check out https://github.com/Breeze/breeze.server.java/tree/master/breezejs-hibernate .

    The NorthBreeze sample (https://github.com/Breeze/breeze.js.samples/tree/master/java/NorthBreeze ) is a web application that uses the breezejs-hibernate library.

  5. Make your site look better of the iPhone

    Touting your mobile chops sets the bar a little higher than you've hit on an iPhone in portrait orientation. The "feedback" button covers code and there's a section that may read "live tutorial" but I'm not sure as it's not legible.

    Thanks anon.

    I’ve updated the Live Tutorial block so you shouldn’t have a problem with it anymore.

    Can you provide more info on the Feedback issue? Admittedly I’m on Android 4.2.2, so don’t share your iPhone experience, but any info you can provide would be helpful.

    You can reach me at johnl@ideablade.com.

    Thanks,

    John

  6. Make breeze play nice with AMD loaders like require.js

    There is a problem when you want to AMD load breeze.js (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13937539/breezejs-and-requirejs-not-working-as-expected)
    I think the only problem is that breeze.js should define dependencies in the define() call. Currently it calls define(), but doesn't pass ['ko', 'Q'] as dependencies, but instead looks for ko and Q in the global namespace.
    If this is too much trouble, please provide second breeze-amd.js version.

  7. update the sample code for a Custom EFContextProvider

    the two overridden methods should be protected, not public. I noticed when extending within my project. Great library. Thanks!

  8. Expose the 'name' property on the Validator class

    Currently, you can initialize a new Validator object with a name in the constructor, but once it's created you can't get at the name through any public property. Exposing a new 'name' property on the Validator Class would let you easily scan the list of ValidationErrors for broken rules associated with a custom validator name.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Support the .NET DateTimeOffset type

    The DateTimeOffset CLR type is a struct, mainly composed by a DateTime struct and a TimeSpan struct (the latter expressing time zone offset).
    In SQL Server 2008 and above, there is also a corresponding "datetimeoffset" native SQL server type that maps nicely with EF.

    The idea of this data type is to be able to represent a date/time, but also a specific time zone.

    Note! The DateTime type is sufficient to calculate exact universal times (by always practicing dates stored as UTC etc.), but it has no information about the time zone e.g. of the user that modified some object.

  15. 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.

  16. We should now only see customers with company names that start with "C" that are also in cities whose names contain "er".

    Step 5 of 6 in tutorial:
    We should now only see customers with company names that start with "C" that are also in cities whose names contain "er".

    Change C to S.
