SharePoint 2013 Client Object Model – BCS Enhancements

Looks like there has been a lot of work spent on improving the client side object model BCS support in SharePoint 2013. This was an area that was lacking in SharePoint 2010 where your only real options were to interact with an external list like you would any other list or write your own web service and code it using server object model (this obviously was not supported in Office 365).

Now you will be able to create feature rich client and mobile applications interacting with your BCS (External Data Columns, External Content Types from SharePoint).
