What is silverlight and why should we use it


 Silverlight is a Microsoft application framework for developing Rich Internet application.

  Historically ,desktop applications have been more rich in User Interface and

  Web applications were limited by many constraint such as cross browser support.

  To fill this gap we can use Silverlight to create rich web application user interface,Far

  better than what ASP.NET can provide, as good as desktop application.

  Silverlight uses XAML(Extensible Application Markup Language) for User Interface.

  Silverlight can interact with Soap and restful services easily.
