I built a previous system using CSLA that uses the data proxy. Obviously this doesn't expose servicecontracts like a normal service.
The issue is, that rather than rewrite the service, I want to call a dataportal fetch which is on one of the business objects.
Is this at all possible?
I am sorry, I don't understand the question.
Your previous system uses the data portal, or uses a custom service?
Sorry, Data Portal..
The data portal is an n-tier technology, allowing the client-side data portal elements to interact with the server-side data portal elements. The data portal doesn't expose an open or interoperable service.
In other words, if you want to call the Fetch method, use the client-side DataPortal class to make the call.
Sadly that is what I thought. So my options is to ask the team that supports this to release a new version and expose a web service method.
