Description:
This course provides a thorough grounding in WCF, covering the essential concepts and shows how to implement WCF services and clients. The “ABC” of address, binding and contracts are covered in detail. Service contracts and data contracts are elaborated, and instance management is covered. The course includes a discussion of error handling and security and concludes with coverage of the WCF Routing Service.
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.

The course uses Visual Studio 2017 with .NET 4.6.1. The course discusses new features of WCF 4.5, including new bindings and support for the task-based asynchronous pattern and WebSockets. A large number of working examples and lab exercises are provided.
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
