I think the problem you are struggling with is:
you need to provide the metadata of your objects. If you use Steven Sandersons demo, you can use the following line of code:
@(Html.UpshotContext(bufferChanges: true).DataSource<DataServiceController>(x => x.MethodToRetrieveData()))
This will configure the metadata u need and configure upshot for you.
Take a look what it generates, and then you can use it manually if you want to.
