Description:
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoft’s new framework for building distributed systems. It unifies and builds on the diverse set of existing distribution mechanisms, which include ASP.NET Web services and .NET Remoting. WCF enables developers to produce highly configurable, secure, reliable and transactional services using a single simplified programming model. And since WCF supports the WS-* series of Web service standards, it enables simple interoperation with other platforms and technologies.
This course provides a thorough grounding in this important technology. The course uses Visual Studio 2012 with .NET 4.5, which provides a number of added features in WCF, including new bindings and support for the task-based asynchronous pattern and WebSockets. A large number of working examples and lab exercises are provided.
Prerequisites:
Students should have a good working knowledge of building .NET applications with C#. Knowledge of building distributed systems and Web services will also be an advantage.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
· Learn what WCF is, and how it unites existing distribution mechanisms
· Gain an understanding of addressing and binding in WCF services
· Use service contracts and data contracts
· Implement WCF services and clients
· Perform configuration in both code and configuration files
· Understand faults and handle errors in WCF applications
· Implement security in WCF applications
· Understand the WCF Routing Service
