Are you still using Web Services? Have you heard about WCF and wondered what makes it so amazingly different than XML Web Services? Are you trying to use BCS to connect SharePoint directly to your database and wondering why it doesn’t feel like the right thing to do? WCF was created to replace quite a number of disparate Windows APIs for communication and place them in one technology.
This “One Band One Sound” approach includes support for concurrency, transactions, security and even message queuing from within the service boundary itself. WCF is its own layer, bridging the gap between any client and any component that client wishes to access. This webinar will explain what WCF is all about, give you a solid idea about its place in the SOA puzzle and demonstrate the flexibillity and sheer power available with this technology.
