  • Blog Post: REST in WCF: Varying response content type based on HTTP Request Headers

    Damian Mehers made a comment on my blog post from April , but I felt it was worth a full reblog.

  • Blog Post: Weblogic JMS with .NET

    This came out last month, I just learned about it from an email from Jesus today. WebLogic Server 10gR3 now has an officially-supported .NET client for its JMS provider . Very cool.

  • Blog Post: WSDL-First development with WCF

    A couple weeks ago I mentioned that you could do WSDL-First development with WCF, but I didn't go into detail as to how that would work. Somebody asked, so I guess I'll describe the specific steps. I want to use a real scenario, so for a WSDL, I will use the WSDL that Microsoft defines for Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: Flatten your WSDL with this Custom ServiceHost for WCF

    Yesterday I mentioned using a custom service host to flatten the WSDL that is generated by a WCF service.

  • Blog Post: Using the WSDL-First design approach with WCF services

    Couple of helpful posts from the archives for you. If you are care about interop, then you probably want to use a contract-first or WSDL-first design for your web services.

  • Blog Post: REST Q & A - enough already

    Tim Bray at Sun has some questions and comments on REST . First, let me say that the religious wars over WS-* and REST seem to be generated by a very small number of people who have a very large amount of spare time. Don't these people have things to do ? Can it possibly be enlightening or helpful...

  • Blog Post: Changing of the Guard: AXIS out, JAXWS in

    I have come to a conclusion: I no longer want to deal with the hassle that has become Apache AXIS. Back in the day, when interconnecting Java to .NET was still novel, I started using Apache SOAP to show how interop between .NET and JAva was possible. I was looking for something simple and easy, something...
