The new guide should propose/include architectures that take advantage of:

Dynamic Data
Entity Framework
Data Services
Windows Workflow Foundation

We are definitely considering these areas.

I'm also assuming that you are talking about ASP.NET Dynamic Data and ADO.NET Data Services, just to be clear.

I hope that you will show/describe real power of ready and generic frameworks/libraries that allow to realize common, architecture-related scenarios.

Frameworks like ASP.NET MVC, Castle, Spring.NET, Ninject should also show there since they allow to cover common cases...

For common implementation of CoR pattern you can review this: .

Hi plpasta,
   This was beyond the scope of what we examined.  We haven't really brought in any 3rd party frameworks by name with the exception of logging for mobile clients because some of our experts felt it was important enough to give a few examples. We were going for something more timeless. As external frameworks can change and we just recommend "3rd party" solutions in certain cases or ignored the issue in favor of stating the principles that a framework should utilize. We didn't want to refer to much in print. We often even pass over our own offerings, leaving them at the bottom as reference and out of the main principles.

But, we do recognize the power there. Afterall, we do have our own dependency injection framework (Unity).

Anyone in the community is welcome to comment the pages where these frameworks are relevant. Just comment the wiki pages on .
