Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
This three-day instructor-led course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to develop distributed applications using WCF 4 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
Before attending this course, students must have:
This course is intended for professional .NET programmers who use Microsoft Visual Studio in a team-based, medium-sized to large development environment. Students should have experience consuming services within their Web and/or Windows client applications and be interested in learning to develop service-oriented applications (SOA) using WCF. Students should be experienced users of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1, as well as cursory familiarity with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 for Windows client or Web application development.
Three days; Instructor-Led
This module explains how to design service-oriented applications, how to adhere to SOA tenets, and how to leverage the benefits of SOA scenarios using WCF.
Lab : Service-Oriented Architecture
After completing this module, students will be able to:
This module describes how to implement a WCF service from the ground up, including defining a contract, implementing the contract, hosting the service, configuring endpoints, and configuring bindings. It also explains how to create a proxy to a WCF service using a channel factory and using the Add Service Reference dialog in Visual Studio 2010.
Lab : Service Development Lifecycle
This module explains how to host WCF services using Windows Services, IIS and WAS, and AppFabric. It describes how to choose the appropriate host and how to properly configure it for your service’s optimal operation.
Lab : Hosting WCF Services
This module describes how to define WCF service contracts, data contracts, and message contracts. It explains how to design WCF contracts appropriately and how to modify WCF contracts according to the selected messaging pattern.
Lab : Contract Design and Implementation
This module describes how to expose multiple endpoints from a WCF service, how to automatically discover services and make services discoverable, how to configure instancing and concurrency modes for services, and how to improve service reliability with transactions and message queues.
Lab : Endpoints and Behaviors
This module describes how to diagnose errors and problem root causes in WCF services and how to configure services to expose fault information. It also explains how to use tracing, message logging, and other diagnostic and governance tools for monitoring services at runtime.
Lab : Testing and Troubleshooting WCF Services
This module explains how to design secure applications, how to implement WCF security on the message level and the transport level, how to integrate authentication and authorization into service code, and how to apply claim-based identity management in federated scenarios.
Lab : Implementing WCF Security
This module explains how to improve service throughput and responsiveness using the asynchronous invocation pattern, and how to extend WCF services using inspectors, behaviors, and host extensions. It also describes how to use the WCF routing service for improving service reliability, and how to use Workflow Services to orchestrate long-running, durable service work.
