Windows Phone RT (8.1) httpportal

I'm trying to build a windows phone 8.1 app for our LOB already using WinRT (windows 8.1) but since WCF does not work on Windows Phone 8.1 i decided to use the HTTPPortal. The problem is I use AuthorizeDataPortal to reconstruct the user/roles and it does work for using WCF but when using HTTP Portal it returns immediately from DataPortalController without doing the fetch or any command i'm trying to make.


any help would be appreciated

Ok so there was no problems with csla, it was my issue. Si now that it is working i noticed that the http proxy is a noticeably slower than the wcf version. Is it me?

Can you post what the issue was and your solution?  It might be helpful to others still even if it wasn't the Csla framework.

I'm a bit ashamed of myself, the problem was, although it was not easy to find, that the assembly/name of my windows phone projects were not the same as .Net projects so because of that the serialization was not working right... I know I know beginner's mistake, but still it was hard to discover.


Now that the HTTP Portal is used i noticed that it was a lot slower than WCF, anybody noticed it?
