WCF DataServices and Silverlight client could fit your LAN application. There is lots of example in the web if you googled with the right keywords.


Use EntityFramework (EDMX) for datamodelling

Generate OData layer using with WCF Dataservices

Access your WCF DataService Layer (OData) using with .NET proxy generator.

Design your thinclient UI's using with MVVM pattern

Good luck :)

Solution 2

After some research I have decided about which technology should be used:

1)its better to develop this application in Silverlight as it is nothing but a subset of WPF.
2)Even better to develop the app in both technology to start with as I can use same XAML for both technology with few or no changes at all.

3)Connecting to database will be simpler in WPF than in Silverlight, as the later does not connect to the database directly and needs a service to achieve this. This service can be written using WCF or Ria service even in a php.

Which Database to be used is not yet finalize though I am still confuse in between MS Access and SQL Server Express.
