SQL Data Service Provider

Mar 2, 2009 at 6:18 PM
I am in the process of familiarizing myself with SQL Data Services.  I remembered the provider pattern that BlogEngine.Net uses and have been working on a provider for it.  I have some questions to throw out to the community:

1. To make easy use of SDS, I need to use some of the .Net 3.5 feartures (LINQ).  Would it be possible to change the target for the Core to .Net 3.5 or would this be unreasonable?
2. If the answer to #1 is no, the provider could be encapuslated in its own DLL and referenced int he web.config.  Any thoughts?
3. Since SDS is in CTP, would it be better just to put this littl eproject off on its own CodePlex project?

I've had some success loading and runnin a few of BlogEngine's tables out of SDS and am excited to finish.  I'd be curious to hear
