Authenication
Web Applications Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Authenticate as myself
– Use web authentication
– Web site has no access to my mesh

• Authenticate as a user on my site


– Use delegated authentication
– User controls access to his mesh

• Mesh enabled web sites authenticate same


as before
Smart Client Applications Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Use either local or cloud mesh

• Local mesh is already authenticated

• Cloud Mesh
– App must get username and password
– Use those credentials to authenticate to
the cloud
Local or Cloud Connection? Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Local connection
– Local data cache
– Use it when offline capability required
– Automatically syncs with the cloud

• Cloud connection
– No local data cache
– Use it when offline capability not needed
Live Framework .NET Kit Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• LiveOperatingEnvironment class
– Connect your application to the LOE

• Cloud Connection
NetworkCredential userCredentials = new
NetworkCredential(“Raymond@hotmail.com”, “ILOVEMHYMESH”);

LiveOperatingEnvironment loe =
LiveOperatingEnvironment .Connect(userCredentials);

• Local Connection
– Uses default user credentials
LiveOperatingEnvironment loe = LiveOperatingEnvironment.Connect();

• Contacts
foreach (Contact contact in loe.Contacts.Entries)
{
Console.WriteLine(contact.Resource.Title);
}

• Profiles
foreach (Profile profile in loe.Profiles.Entries)
{
Console.WriteLine(profile.Resource.Title);
}

• Mesh Objects
foreach (MeshObject mo in loe.Mesh.MeshObjects.Entries)
{
Console.WriteLine(mo.Resource.Title);

Simple Queries Live Services
Synchronizing Life

var myQuery = (from mo in mesh.CreateQuery<MeshObject>()


where mo.Resource.Type == "LiveMeshFolder"
select mo);

Returns IQueryAble<MeshObject> - No count returned

var execQuery = (from mo in mesh.CreateQuery<MeshObject>().Execute()


where mo.Resource.Type == "LiveMeshFolder"
select mo);

Returns IEnumerable<MeshObject> - Count is returned

var listQuery = (from mo in mesh.CreateQuery<MeshObject>()


where mo.Resource.Type == "LiveMeshFolder"
select mo).ToList();

Returns List<MeshObject> - Count is returned


Filtering and Sorting Live Services
Synchronizing Life

Parameter Description

Orderby Sort the output by the values in the given element arg,
where arg is a string.
Skip Skip the first arg results, where arg is a positive integer.

Take Return the next arg results, where arg is a positive


integer.
Expand Prefetch the specified resources in arg, where arg is a
property of the returned object. More than one resource
can be specified as long as they are separated by a
var mos = (from mo in mesh.CreateQuery<MeshObject>()
where mo.Resource.Type == "LiveMeshFolder"
select mo).Skip(12).Take(12).OrderBy(mo=>mo.Resource.Title);

Returns the second dozen MeshObject entries that are folders, and
sorts them by their Title element values.

Mesh Objects
Live Framework .NET Kit Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Mesh Object
– Contains application metadata
– Fundamental unit of extensibility, sharing and
synchronization
– Can be replicated across a set of devices
– Can be shared among users and applications
– Contains:
• Members, Mapping, News, DataFeeds, Activities

MeshObject pokerInfo = new MeshObject("PokerInfo");


PokerChip chip = new PokerChip();
pokerInfo.Resource.SetUserData<PokerChip>(chip);
service.Mesh.MeshObjects.Add(ref pokerInfo);

public class PokerChip


{ public int NumberOfChips {get; internal set}}

DataEntries
Live Framework .NET Kit Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• DataFeed
– Stores application information
• Metadata and blobs
– Receive update information
– Has Replication and synchronization capabilities
– A mesh object can have any number of data feeds
– Remember to add a DataFeed to a newly created
MeshObject

DataFeed newDataFeed = new DataFeed();


newDataFeed.Resource.Type = “LiveMeshFolder”;
newDataFeed.Resource.HandlerType = “FileSystem”;

meshObject.DataFeeds.Add(ref newDataFeed);
Live Framework .NET Kit Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• DataEntry
– Data Entries and stored in a DataFeed
– Lowest level of storage in a mesh object

// Read the file.


FileStream input = new FileStream(path + filename, FileMode.Open);
DataEntry dataEntry = df.DataEntries.Add(input, filename);
input.Close();

// Required to see user data on all devices/Live Desktop/Data Model Browser


dataEntry.Update();
// Make sure everyone is synchronized
df.SyncEntries.Synchronize();
df.Update();

Resource Scripts
Resource Scripts Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• What are they?


– Small domain specific language
– Declarative way to interact with LOE
– Logical equivalent of batched procedures
• Why use them?
– Frees you from the lower level details of
the HTTP protocol
– Improves efficiency
– Extend the Request processing pipeline
with custom business logic
Resource Scripts Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Declarative modeling for


– Control Flow Statements
• Sequence, Interleave, Conditional, CRUD
– Data Flow Statements
• Bind statements
• Run locally or on the server
• Can run as triggers
• Serialized as POX or JSON
Statements Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• SequenceStatement
– Sequentially executes child statements
• InterleaveStatement
– Executes child statements in parallel
• ConditionalStatement
– If … Else … execution
• CRUD statements
– Operate on resources
Client vs Server Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Server Side Execution


– Script.RunAtServer(credentials)
– Single HTTP request/response

• Client Side (In Process) Execution


– Script.Run(credentials)
– Multiple HTTP requests/responses
– Each statement generates request
Triggers Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Attach to a resource instance


• Pre and post logic on Create, Update
and Delete
Examples:
– Create a thumbnail after an image
resource is created
– Remove a folder if the last child object is
removed
Authoring and Running Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Create the statement DOM


• Compile the DOM and generate the
ResourceScript instance
• Execute the ResourceScript instance
• If a trigger, attach to the resource

Membeship
Live Framework .NET Kit Live Services
Synchronizing Life

• Members
– Represents a Windows Live ID’s
membership in the MeshObject.
– New members have to be invited to be
part of the Resource
– Has a role based on the object.
• Full, Author Writer, Reader
if (!meshObject.Members.IsLoaded)
meshObject.Members.Load();

foreach (Member member in meshObject.Members.Entries)


{
memberObjects.Add(member.Resource);
Console.WriteLine(member.Resource.InvitationAccepted);
