Projects: The Container for Your LightSwitch Application
You store and organize the pieces of your application by using projects in Visual Studio LightSwitch. Each application that you create has its own project, which contains the data entities, screens, queries, and resources that are required to build the application.
All these pieces are stored in files, but you don't have to think of a project in terms of files. In fact, the default view of a project in Solution Explorer provides a logical view of the application.
You can create the following types of projects by using LightSwitch in Visual Studio 2013:
Uses New Solution Model
LightSwitch Desktop Application (Visual Basic)
Creates an application with a Silverlight client, using Visual Basic code for both the server and client components.
LightSwitch Desktop Application (Visual C#)
Creates an application with a Silverlight client, using C# code for both the server and client components.
LightSwitch HTML Application (Visual Basic)
LightSwitch HTML Application (Visual C#)
The project template that you choose is just a starting point. You can add an HTML client to a LightSwitch Desktop Application project, and you can add a Silverlight client to a Lightswitch HTML Application project. The server code and entity model are shared between clients, and you can’t change the language.
