Well whaddayaknow!!! The two things that I have been playing around with just got married!!! Nah, not really like that. I was just so pleasantly surprised when I found that now.. Visual Studio Lightswitch can Publish to Azure!!!!
So here goes!!!!
Off the top of my head, I think I will need both a hosted storage and a database because VS-LS apps are mostly data driven. Hmmm…. I’ll make one of both.
Then I create a lightswitch app and publish!
Of course you should publish it as a web app
And tell Lightswitch that it is to be deployed to Windows Azure
I supply the subscription ID and create a certificate for it
Upload the certificate I just made to my azure portal
I click next on th Lightswitch Publish wizard and choose appropriate values
Create a new Certificate
Connect to my Database
Watch as your management portal is being updated..
Wait for iiiit….
And you now have.. a lightswitch app deployed on azure!
