Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoft’s strategic technology for building distributed, connected systems. Initially released with .NET 3.0, it has been significantly enhanced in .NET 3.5 to support the various web programming models: SOAP, POX, WS-*, REST and RSS/Atom syndications.
In our session, we will talk about: WCF architecture, WCF bindings and configuration, hosting WCF services, WCF security and some design best practices. We will focus on SOAP and REST, but we will see examples of each of the programming models. We will also learn how to integrate our WCF services with the ASP.NET Membership service for authentication and authorization.
