Bit of background, we have a large SharePoint environment (500k users) which has multiple authentication providers (AD/Custom Claims) in order to simplify user management, I wrote a farm solution which unify's management of them all under one interface available through Central Admin.
Having spent the past few days searching the internet, I've come across loads of examples using jquery/knockout.js/backbone.js in SharePoint, but all of them assume you are querying the SharePoint REST api or some other web service.
The problem is, that the current user tool exposes all its methods through standard asp/c# so their is no web service involved.
So my question: Is it possible to use jquery/knockout.js/backbone.js without a webservice to query in sharepoint 2010, E.G rendering a list of objects returned from a method. If so does anyone have an example. If not, do I have to rewrite the entire tool into a webservice.
