Object model around metadata queries

Jul 14, 2011 at 3:44 PM

Hey OData team --

System.Data.Services.Client definitely provides valuable functionality in code-gen scenarios, but I'm interested in exploring a more dynamic consumption mechanic than that.  Is there a different library that should be used?  I was exploring the API and it seems like the library is missing a basic object model around metadata retrieval alone.

brandynphelps, the OData Library (http://odata.codeplex.com/releases/view/60787) is intended to address exactly what you are asking for - a typeless dynamic serialization/deserialization library for OData. It currently supports only the serialization (no deserialization) and the metadata object model (with reading/writing support) is not implemented either but the intent is to - hopefully soon - add support for both of those things.
