    Can asp.net mvc host both silverlight and asp.net application?

    Hi,

    I am new to asp.net mvc and trying to add silverlight technology to my design. However, I do not want take a full dive into silverlight web application. I done some research and found that asp.net mvc can host silverlight application. That is great to leverage both technologies. However, silverlight currently does not support SSRS report viewing and printing. My question: can asp.net mvc host both silverlight and asp.net application. I can design the asp.net application to handle the SSRS report viewing and printing features.

    Any expert advice is greatly appreciated for ppl who are learning,

    Thanks

    I think that by asp.net in your question, you mean web forms. because both mvc and web forms are asp.net.
    So yes, you can have the same site hosting mvc and web forms.

    Just to make it clearer you can combine ASP.NET Web forms, ASP.NET MVC and Silverlight on the same site/web application. If you're new to ASP.NET you will need to understand the difference between ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC. Silverlight is a client-side technology and technically not related or dependent (certainly not in conflict) on ASP.NET. From the last time I looked at it you could host silverlight in a simple html page served as is (i.e. no server side processing).
