Support for complex data models in DataSource.
DataSource should be more feature rich. I consider following features a must in order to be able to develop complex UI's without the current pain
- Multimple models definition
- Associations between models
- Lazy load of associations!
- Allow use a REST approach for associations (send updates over a HasMany association to a service)
- Allow send the complete object
- Association validations
- Min/Max number of elements
The Q2 2012 release will include hierarchy support.
Hierarchical DataSource was introduced in the Q2 2012 Kendo UI release.
