  • Blog Post: MySpace does WCF

    My friend Vittorio has posted that MySpace will be talking about WCF at Mix 2008 ( see it here ). This promises to be a good session!
  • Blog Post: Life of a WCF Demo, Part 1

    I thought it might be mildly interesting to document the lifecycle of a demo. Over the next week or so I have to design, build, and deploy a demo that shows off some of the web-centric features of WCF in the .NET Framework 3.5. First, let me state the constraints: 1) it has to be lightweight - a person...
  • Blog Post: PictureServices and BizTalk Services

    Previous posts have talked a bit about PictureServices. Now I'd like to run through what it took to bring PictureServices to the BizTalk Services. I've talked a bit in other posts about BizTalk Services, but it has some interesting and very useful messaging features. For starters, BizTalk Services has...
  • Blog Post: XML namespace declarations in SyndicationFeed objects

    Following on the heels of Steve Maine's post about namespaces in Syndication objects (Feeds, items, etc.), I thought it wise to plug the new stuff in PictureServices . At the moment, PictureServices implements SLE (Simple List Extensions), and does a pretty crude job of it at that. Time permitting...
  • Blog Post: PictureServices updated to VS 2008 RTM

    Today I updated PictureServices to work with the RTM release of Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5 (what a mouthful). My testing rigor for this release was less than perfect. Please let me know if you find any bugs. For what it's worth, the changes in the API made the simple list extensions...
  • Blog Post: WCF Syndication article in MSDN Magazine...

    It seems that the RSS/Atom article I wrote for MSDN magazine was just published: http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/08/01/WCFinOrcas/default.aspx The RTM version of .NET 3.5 was not available when I wrote the article, so I avoided the extensibility capabilites of the API. Perhaps that's fodder...
  • Blog Post: Hamsters, Robots, and Services

    This is one of the more interesting videos I've seen in a while: http://www.irobot.com/create/videos/bionic%20hamster.html I've been poking around a bit in the Microsoft Robotics Studio on and off for the past few months, and I'm intrigued by their approach to services, tasks, and coordination. From...
  • Blog Post: Check out Picture Services

    A few days ago we released a new sample called Picture Services. As the name implies, this sample centers on pictures. More specifically, it demonstrates how to use the WCF API in the .NET Framework 3.5 to syndicate images from your local machine and expose them via a REST endpoint. There's been a fair...
  • Blog Post: Syndication formats, endpoints and config files

    I got a question via email today that forced me to look back through some older emails for the answer. It may make sense to share the question / answer in a broader sense. Earlier builds of Orcas surfaced a syndication format to an endpoint by way of a behavior. In essence, you could add a SyndicationBehavior...
  • Blog Post: Podcast with Jon Udell

    Jon just published a podcast where we discuss how WCF in Orcas simplifies Syndication and RESTful style architectures. Hear it here .
  • Blog Post: BizTalk Services CTP is Public

    The BizTalk Services CTP is available for all to play with. In general, the concept is services in the cloud. It's a gross understatement, but enough for now. It's way cool because it opens the door for some innovative service scenarios. I plan on blogging quite a bit about these services in the near...
  • Blog Post: Syndication - Beyond the News

    The next version of the .NET Framework ( Orcas ) includes support for web programming via WCF. In this context, web programming is the inclusion of web-centric protocols and constructs into the WCF programming model. Specifically, the WCF-related parts of Orcas support HTTP GET-style programming, HTTP...
