.NET RIA Services with the Business Application Template


Business Application Template  will give you an ASP.NET project, there with a Services folder and three new files: AuthenticationService, UserInformation, UserRegistrationService.  These are all services to expose authentication and membership integration.  Running the template by default will give you a new “login” link in the upper right and clicking on that implements a new ChildWindow for login:

Biz App Login Template

Notice the "Register now” link which then uses another ChildWindow control for registration:

Biz App Register Template

Registering a new user uses the UserRegistrationService to add a new user to the system.  If you look at the UserRegistrationService you’ll see that it uses the ASP.NET Membership APIs.
