Silverlight, RIA, Progress

Hi there
I am new to Silverlight, RIA development and I do like to get a feedback to the client for long running processes running on the DomainService...
How to do this?

do I have to poll the Domainservicecontext as context.GetCurrentProgress(); or is it possible to make events on the domainservice. But how?

How can i make a simple method in the domainservice as
public int GetValue()
{
 return 1;
}

I do like to return only an int or a boolean or a custom object...
