LitwareHR has been updated to support SQL Server Data Services (SSDS) as the online storage provider. LitwareHR is the Software as a Service (SaaS) reference application that demonstrates how to create multi-tenant applications on the Microsoft platform. The application includes source code to show you how it was done.
The latest update includes a new data model that works with SSDS flexible entities, new infrastructure for data access to SSDS including hi-latency scenarios, cross container search, and support for offline development. The kit also includes unit tests and new improved user experience. A dependency checker verifies that you've installed all the prerequisites. And more.
You can get the Litware HR May release on Codeplex. To use SSDS as your storage provider, you’ll need to register for a SSDS beta account. You'll also need Visual Studio 2008 to compile the source code.
Or you can check out LitwareHR in a screencast walkthrough. You can also see the SSDS presentation shown at MIX08.
Can I install/run LitwareHR on Windows7?
You can ask your question on litwarehr.codeplex.com/discussions
Litware was a server application, but I don't know of a reason you couldn't try developing it under Windows 7.
It looks like it hasn't been updated since 2008. Your mileage may vary.
Hope this helps.
