DevConnections - SOA - Michele Leroux Bustamante

My first session is a pre-conference workshop with Michele Leroux Bustamante. She is one of the first people that was presenting on WCF back when it was beta, maybe before. She has been talking about it for a long time and has even written a book on WCF. Her session was really good and I highly recommend her to anyone because she is a great presenter and really knows her stuff (not to mention will dig into it). Plus she is personable and you can ask her questions about items through email. Little ......

DevConnections in Vegas

So here I find myself at DevConnections again. I came because I had such an enjoyable experience in Orlando last year. This year I am hoping for the same. This is my first time at the Vegas DevConnections and it looks like many more people come out here than go to Orlando. They also have more co-conferences at the same time. I am looking forward to the WCF presentations and the first one I will be headed to is a pre-conference workshop on SOA with Michele Leroux Bustamante. The post-conference session ......

WCF Faulted State Question

Check the State property of the communication object before executing a service operation. I will add option three: ......

WCF Impersonation - Specifying Windows Authentication Credentials on the Service Host Side of the WCF Equation

We don't want to use AspNetCompatibility mode in case we ever want to take advantage of net.tcp or another custom binding, so is there a way to specify and implement impersonation (read: userName=,password=) on the WCF Service Host side? Did Microsoft in their infinite wisdom leave this out? I posed this question to my friend Dru today after we were having trouble finding a way to do it. So there are plenty of articles on WCF Impersonation out there, but nearly all of them originate from the client ......

WCF in IIS with Websites that have Multiple Identities

Error Description: "This collection already contains an address with scheme http. There can be at most one address per scheme in this collection. Parameter name: item" A fantastic<sarcasm> thing you may come across using WCF when you deploy to a production network is that your networks group uses more than one identity per website (most likely due to different host headers). Below is a picture of what it looks like in IIS. You get there when you right click on the website (in IIS) and select ......
