    It's roundtripping! Again.

    • 2 Comments
    As of 11:35AM CST, I’ve got roundtripping of SOAP messages via MSMQ working once again. This time, however, there are notable changes to how WS-Addressing impacts an asynchronous conversation. A request for your input on this one will be forthcoming...

    It's Alive! Again.

    • 0 Comments
    As of 10:33AM CST, I’m sending SOAP messages once again via MSMQ and the latest build of WSE. In general, the changes to the transport model have definitely simplified things - thanks Hervey . I’m sure my wife will someday appreciate the fact...

    My favorite disassembler and a moral quandry

    • 0 Comments
    My first MSIL disassembler was Anakrino , but I’ve since become a big fan of Lutz Roeder’s .NET Reflector . Question: what’s the legality of using a disassembler to peer inside the .NET Framework classes?

    Scalable asynchronous I/O

    • 3 Comments
    While working on the MSMQ transport for WSE 2.0, my thoughts have drifted to what it takes to do scalable I/O. Creating a thread-per-operation is very bad behavior, and doesn’t scale well at all – but is a very easy programming model. On the...

    You learn something new every day

    • 5 Comments
    I encountered something today in C# that I’ve never seen before and it caught me off guard. In looking at the WSE 2.0 samples to understand how the transport mechanisms have changed, I came across the following in StockService: Uri uri = new Uri...

    Back to work on SoapMSMQChannel

    • 0 Comments
    It’s been well over two months since I’ve cracked open the code for the SoapMSMQChannel. I’m picking up the latest drop of WSE this morning and reviving the effort around this so we can enjoy the channel with the release of WSE 2.0.

    Got word today that we’re moving the blogs from blogs.gotdotnet.com over to weblogs.asp.net. Figured there’s no time like the present to get it setup and make sure it’s all working.
