INTRODUCTION

THIS BOOK IS ABOUT Windows Communication Foundation in .NET 4.0.

With this new book you'll understand the principles of service orientation, learn patterns in communication, and discover how to declaratively define business processes. You'll learn the different parts of the technology to support these scenarios and gain a clear understanding of how the pieces of WCF 4.0 build upon each other to provide a comprehensive framework to support many aspects of distributed enterprise applications. Besides explaining the technical aspects of the WCF 4.0 stack, this book takes also a practical approach by showing three cases (service orientation, communication, and business processes) and implementing them step by step. The authors guide you in the practical aspects of developing with WCF and Visual Studio.

As you build your knowledge of the WCF 4.0 platform, you'll also learn how to effectively use Visual Studio 2010 to build solutions that maximize the new WCF 4.0 capabilities.

You'll also see how to set up a solution in this new architectural form based on WCF 4.0 as technology and .NET Services. You will learn how to solve actual real-world problems ...
