Carl and Richard talk to Demis Bellot about ServiceStack, a set of tools for building web services and MVC web sites with incredible performance. Demis talks about his thinking behind ServiceStack, its support for a diverse set of protocols and how it compares to WCF and WebAPI. The conversation
Carl and Richard talk to Brian Noyes about the Single Page Application (SPA) feature coming in MVC 4. Brian talks about the similarities of the design patterns for SPA to the more classical Silverlight or WPF application with RIA or WCF services on the back end. While hardly new to the web space
Demis Bellot has put together an open source .NET and Mono REST Web Services framework called Service Stack. It's effectively a WCF replacement for some kinds of webservices. There's no XML and no code-generation. Why do frameworks like this exist and what kinds of things did Demis take into cons.
Udi Dahan shows you how to use the fabulous NServiceBus to provide reliable messaging using both a request/response and publish/subscribe architecture. He shows how much easier it is to use NServiceBus than to use WCF for reliable messaging.
This episode of Herding Code the guys talk REST with Glenn Block (who’s driving the WCF Web APIs), Darrel Miller (a REST expert with a lot of real world production experience), and John Sheehan (author of RestSharp) about what REST really is and what practical value it really offers in real world.
Richard caught up with Glenn Block at Mix 2011 to find out what he's been working on since the MEF days. After a quick tour down memory lane about MEF and Brad Abrams, Glenn discusses WCF Web APIs. The Web APIs focus WCF onto pure HTTP, making it easier to build RESTful applications while not req.
Glenn Block is with Scott in The Netherlands and tries to get Scott up to speed on what's new in WCF. Scott thinks WCF is scary and heavyweight. How does WCF fit into a world of Web 2.0 lightweight APIs? What's the WCF WebAPI and how does compare to services in ASP.NET MVC?
With all the emphasis on HTML 5 and devices more and more people are thinking of creating services with the HTTP stack. Though WCF has had support for this since .NET 3.5 the WCF team has been working hard on the new WCF Web API stack with awesome support for just about anything you would ever w.
Are you sometimes annoyed by Windows Workflow Foundation (WF4) or Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)? Sure you are. All of use are sometimes annoyed by these products - including those of us who work on the team. We know there are things we could do to make the products better but what we
Listen here! [41:15] Gareth Jones has chops. Tech chops, that is. He’s been around the .NET community making tools for developers for several years and one of those tools happens to be T4. That’s right, that T4, the Text Template Transformation Toolkit. More of us are stumbling across T4 lately
You've been asking for it and here it is. I've put together some sample code showing how you can use WF4 with ASP.NET and do it the right way... the fast way with async calls.For more info see this blog postRon Jacobshttp://blogs.msdn.com/rjacobsTwitter: @ronljacobs http://twitte.
The other day, I walked by the office where our team members from Shanghai work while in Redmond and I ran into Leo Shum, a test lead on the new WCF Web HTTP (REST) Test Tool. On this episode, Leo joins me in the studio to show you how this new tool works. Though it's not yet shipping, we definit.
Do you really want to know how to make your service fast? There is only one way to improve performance and that is to set a goal and test your system under load. The trouble is that there are few good load testing tools for WCF.In this episode, once again I'm joined by Jesus Rodriguez of SO.
Glenn Block joins me for a look at how you can use the new WCF Web API libraries to build great browser based apps with jQuery with new support for Form URI encoding and other custom content types.For more info see http://wcf.codeplex.comRon Jacobshttp://blogs.msdn.com/rjacobs.
Yesterday morning I received an email from Ryo in Belgium who asked for help in unit testing a workflow. Ryo had read my previous posts on Microsoft.Activities.UnitTesting.XamlInjector and wanted to use it to test his workflow but was having trouble. I gave him a quick suggestion and a little l.
Last episode I shared with you some thoughts about my 4 Tenets of Service Oriented Data Validationand I showed an example of using them with WCF.In this episode I'll walk through an updated version of the WCF Service Fault and Validation Example to show you how you can do the same thing with
All this thinking about faults caused me to think about a deeper question. What would be a great design for data validation in a service oriented architecture? After some thought I proposed 4 Tenets of Service Oriented Data Validation.In this episode I'll walk through the WCF Service Fault
While I was out on holiday break I had this idea. What if you could create an operation behavior that would cache results for a WCF call and intercept the call returning the response from the cache if it was found? That would be pretty cool so I created the WCF AppFabric Caching Behavior Sample.
