Free chapter of .NET book: WCF Hands-on!

February 20th, 2007

Windows Communication Foundation looms as an important step forward for Microsoft-style development. WCF can provide an infrastructure for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). It is based on a Service Model focused on the job of communicating, and uses a class framework called the Channel Layer (comprising classes in the System.Service.Model.Channel namespace. Often running alongside SOA is WSDL, the Web Services Description Language uses XML to describe data. It is intended to provide a unified approach to the task of connecting diverse systems.

In this chapter, entitled “Data Representation,” the authors describe how data is sent from a Windows Communication Foundation client to a service, is serialized to XML within the client, and received from clients by Windows Communication Foundation, and so on.
