In the April 2008 issue of MSDN Magazine, Michele Leroux Bustamante started a series of columns in which she demonstrates how to create a simple Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) router that allows messages to flow transparently between the calling client and the target service.

In the first installment Michele reviewed important WCF addressing and message filtering semantics, how to design a router contract to work with untyped messages, and how to configure the bindings and behaviors to allow messages to pass through untouched by the router.

In the June 2008 installment of the Service Station column, Michele continues the discussion by looking at further implementation details that arise when more practical scenarios for routers are employed.

You’ll find more articles about WCF in our MSDN Magazine archives.
