  • Blog Post: Storing Application Configuration Information in SSO

  • Blog Post: WCF: Did you know?

    Did you know that when doing contract first development and utilize a Boolean data type with a default value (lets just say the default value was set to true), WCF will not serialize out the default value in the message.

    I was recently working on a proof of concept where we needed to interface to a repository that returned the documents using DIME attachments.

  • Blog Post: Exposing Custom WCF Headers through WCF Behaviors

    Since the WCF Publishing Wizard in BizTalk does not support adding custom headers defined at the server, we need to programmatically modify what gets created by the wizard to add custom headers. However, from the client you have the option to pass in header values at will. If you are passing in headers...
