comment How to fix encoding problems with Turkish characters?
Repeated question? Please, take a look at "How to read Greek fonts (ISO-8859-7) in shapefile attributes within QGIS 1.8.0?" (goo.gl/qqhnK).

comment Load and display a large number of points using openlayers
The only solution I see is that you show a raster layer (WMS, for instance) instead a vector layer. The con is that you would have to set up a WMS server (for instance with GeoServer or MapServer), or similar.

comment Caching / Preloading data for use with WMS queries
Perhaps you are missing two things. First, the WMS cache can be seed, by using the cache seeder application, before users use the service. Second, there is no need to 'refresh' the whole WMS cache after there is change on the geographical informations. If the changes are limited to certain geoghaphical areas, updating just the tiles corresponding to them is enough; the TileCache seeder application allows limiting the portion of WMS cache updated to a given bounding box (see goo.gl/rS1dG).

comment Best way to create tiles
TileCache seems stuck on version 2.11. Sometimes I wonder if it is alive, because this release has already some years. Anyway, TileCache is a great software although the seeder application has the annoyance of aborting when the cached WMS service cannot, for whatever reason, generate a requested tile; an additional problem is that you cannot tell seeder application to resume from the tile that caused it to stop.

comment In need of WFS-T support in a WPF/Silverlight application
As said by RomaH, Silverlight technology will not see further development. However, it seems that Microsoft will support it until 2021 (goo.gl/rhw5i). Anyway, I think that using this technology in a new development is a bad idea.

comment Creating a openlayers enabled web project in eclipse
As said by unicoletti, the first step would be checking that there are no syntax errors or of any other kind. In case a needed component has not been loaded, then it would trigger an error message.
