Jörg an I created a new RIA Template and sample application for enterprise applications based on Silverlight 3 and the Silverlight Toolkit.
This Visual Studio template and sample application provides a basic structure with sample code for an Enterprise RIA. The intention of providing this was to show how Microsoft Silverlight 3 can be used to create Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) in an enterprise environment. This means e.g. to effectively visualize enterprise data and provide functionalities which may allow to better work with and manipulate such data in comparison to traditional web applications. The focus when designing this template and sample was on the following two main subjects:
The sample application deals with financial data and stock trades. It exemplary implements certain aspects of visualizing of data which can be relevant and helpful while buying or selling stocks and managing accounts.
The functionality of the sample application is best described using a screenshot of the application itself.
This template and sample application is based on
and was developed using
The architecture of the application is, besides others based on the following patterns and techniques
More in depth and technical details to this implementation and techniques can probably found soon in theses blogs:

The template and sample application can be found here on MyMSDN or just drop me a note. Due to some time constraints it is still based on Silverlight 3 Beta however we will provide a SL 3 release version pretty soon.
