  • Blog Post: WCF and Apache AXIS interop

    I'm getting back to building and publishing working examples. My latest is a working example of a WCF client communicating with an Apache AXIS 1.4 server, using web services.

  • Blog Post: For Date or Time values and Interop: watch the transitions!

    Someone asked, My client has an asp.net application in which there is a lot of date/time management. DB server, application server and the client PCs are in different timezones, so they want to ensure that time management is done in one timezone on the server and presented to the user in the client...

  • Blog Post: SCA is an endorsement of WCF?

    huh? SCA is an endorsement of WCF ? Seriously? I posted earlier in the summer about SCA and made a statement to that effect. That post just got a comment questioning my sanity or intelligence or both (the comment asked if I was in marketing. Can you believe that? The nerve of some people!) Talking...
  • Blog Post: SOA Story featuring WebSphere and WCF Interop, and wow! Look at those prices!

    This is an older story, but you may have missed it. (I did!) Insurance provider Safeco initiated a SOA effort and within that, built a new application using WebSphere Process Server, ASP.NET, and WCF Services written in C#. The story was written up on infoq back in May, but it is still very current....
  • Blog Post: WCF and the Line-of-Business Adapter SDK

    Microsoft intended WCF to be a generalized communication framework - the programming framework that developers would use to communicate with anything . Around the initial release of WCF, in December 2006, people thought of it as a web services thang. It ain't. It's WS-* checkbox compliant, for sure....

  • Blog Post: IBM WebSphere Registry/Repository and Interop with .NET, part 3

    Back in May, IBM had posted an article describing how to connect to its WebSphere Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) from .NET applications. A surprise to me. Not long ago I was huffing about lack interop on WSRR. I later amended my comments in a followup post , saying that IBM had documented a SOAP...

  • Blog Post: WiiMoteLib - .NET library for Wii Remote

    Just saw this, thought it was interesting in the realm of interop. The popular Nintendo Wii game system has some really cool motion-sensing magic in the controller .

    I just listened to an on-demand webcast on the Sharepoint Business Data Catalog - aka BDC.

  • Blog Post: Overloading in WebMethods, part II

    OK, I lied. In the prior article on overloading in webmethods I took the position that it is a dangerous thing to do. BUT..., that's not completely true. Just a wee bit false. A tiny bit of dissembling. A good way to apply overloading to webmethods is to modify the generated client-side proxy. Lots of...
  • Blog Post: Overloading in WebMethods, part I

    Overloading and Web Services? Don't Do it! Somebody recently asked about the use of Overloaded method names in webservice interfaces. The idea would be to expose a single webmethod that accepts different parameter lists. Now, I am aware of the MessageName property of the WebMethod Attribute. But I generally...
