Windows Azure Table Storage

I am currently in the middle of creating a Presentations on Windows Azure.  Included in this presentation is how to interact with Windows Azure Storage Services using the Managed Storage API.

While creating a class to manage connections to my Storage Service, I was writing a method to add some data to Table Storage. I had imported Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient, which is the namespace in which the Managed Storage API exists, that exposed only a few methods of the TableServiceContext class.  After looking around MSDN it seems that the TableServiceContext class is dependant on the System.Data.Services.Client.  The System.Data.Services.Client namespace is responsible for the majority of the functionality of the TableServiceContext class.

Add a reference to the System.Data.Services.Client namespace to your Project, when you are trying to use the Table functionality of Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient class.

Happy Coding!
