I see that there are WPF, WP7, SL, and MVC Samples.  Are there plans for a Web Form Sample?

Not at this time.

Web Forms hasn't changed in any meaningful way (that would impact the use of CSLA objects) since 2005 or 2006. The content from Expert 2008 Business Objects in terms of the Web Forms UI remains relevant today.

Will the enhanced/new features of ASP.NET in .NET 4.5 have impact on CSLA?

Strongly typed data controls:

Model binding: 

Unobtrusive validation:

I don't know yet, because I haven't had time to really dig into those concepts.

A lot of the "new" Web Forms concepts appear to be extensions or adoption of existing MVC concepts - like a model binder. So it is quite possible that most of the existing MVC functionality will now just apply to Web Forms too, in which case we'll just move the types from Csla.Web.Mvc to Csla.Web.

Some of the more client-side stuff obviously won't impact CSLA at all, becuase .NET doesn't run on the client - that's pure js.

There's no doubt though, that I'll need to have a Using CSLA 4.5: ASP.NET Web Forms or something along that line. There are enough changes that there'll be some impact for sure.
