Here are answers to some questions that came up during my MSDN event in Sacramento yesterday.
1. Is HTTP endpoint creation supported in SQL Server Express edition?Unfortunately, no. 2. Is WSE supported for web services created through HTTP endpoints in SQL Server?WS-Security (Oasis) will be the only feature of WSE 2.0 that will be supported as part the security model in the RTM of SQL 2005. 3. How can the cache be invalidated (or marked dirty) through an ASP.NET app? Along the same lines, how can the cache be dirtied if the app is retrieving this info from a database, and the records in the dB have changed, for example?This is a new feature of Yukon and Whidbey – automatic notification of when data changes is available. (not available with VS.net 2003) Check out http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dnvs05/html/querynotification.asp
