WCF tips

leave a comment »

I’m currently reading Juval Lowy’s Programming WCF Services.  It’s very good on the detail of WCF, but (so far) a little light on tips for using it effectively.  So, when I stumbled across David Pallmann’s blog, I was intrigued to see that he has posted a series of tips about how to use WCF.  Here are the links:

1 – Service Interface Design

2 – Service Class Design

3 – Service Hosting

4 – Configuration

5 – Infrastructure

6 – Instrumentation

7 – Clients

I particularly like the suggestion of using an SOA thinfrastructure (partly because I like the word, of course) – i.e. to use as little SOA infrastructure as you can get away with but no less.  Buying all the bits of an SOA infrastructure that you think you might need before actually building any services is a recipe for pain.
