Presentation: Tweet"A pragmatic approach to creating services using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)"
RESTful services have become quite popular lately. Part of the RESTful approach is to leverage the HTTP protocol such as HTTP verbs, HTTP headers etc. We have almost the opposite approach to creating rich services supporting authentication, validation, logging, multitenancy etc. Using .NETs Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) as our communication technology we construct services so that they will work equally well using a SOAP approach as well as a simple XML and JSON serialization approach, using HTTP as well as other transport mechanisms and at the same time allowing projects to leverage the full range of functionality of the services using simple .NET method calls.
This talk will give an overview of our pragmatic approach to creating, calling and testing services.
