Bustamante, Michele Leroux.

For intermediate to advanced system designers and developers, this guide introduces Microsoft's Windows Communication Foundation for building service-oriented applications. Bustamante provides recommendations for specific scenarios relating to distributed communication, messaging, and web services; discusses the WS protocol support; and covers features of the platform. After background on Service Oriented Architecture, its four tenets, and how Windows Communication Foundation satisfies them, coverage is given of contracts, bindings, hosting, instancing and concurrency, reliability, security, and exceptions and faults. She does not cover all aspects of the platform in detail, discuss peer-to-peer communications, or give extensibility or custom channels a separate chapter. She uses interim versions of the next release of Visual Studio, and readers should be familiar with .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. Code samples and hands-on labs are incorporated. Bustamante provides training, mentoring, and high-end architecture consulting services and is also associated with Microsoft.
