Why My WCF Data Service isn’t Returning JSON Format?

Monday, January 28, 2013

Why My WCF Data Service isn’t Returning JSON Format? Lately, I had the need to use WCF Data Services in a project. It has been a while since I used and wrote about WCF Data Services and a lot was changed in the framework. The scenario I needed to implement was calling a data service using jQuery. So I wrote the relevant service and used the code I wrote a few years ago and nothing happened… I got a HTTP error – HTTP Error 415 Unsupported media type. Since I know that WCF Data Services support JSON format,...

WCF Data Services Processing Pipeline

Monday, May 2, 2011

WCF Data Services Processing Pipeline First I must confess. Even tough I like OData and WCF Data Services, in the last couple of months I didn’t have the chance to work or use them. This is why when .NET 4 was shipped I haven’t noticed a new and interesting extension point in the framework – the processing pipeline. In the last MIX11 I got a little introduction to that extension point in Mike Flasko’s session. In this post I’ll explain what is the WCF Data Services' server side processing pipeline. WCF Data Services Processing Pipeline In...

Making a JSONP Call to a WCF Data Service using datajs

Sunday, April 24, 2011

Making a JSONP Call to a WCF Data Service using datajs During MIX11 I attended a very interesting session about datajs which was presented by Asad Khan and Marcelo Lopez Ruiz. As I promised in my previous post, in this post I’ll show you how to make a JSONP call to a WCF Data Service using datajs library. A Little About datajs datajs is a very promising JavaScript library which is currently being built by Microsoft as an open source in CodePlex. The library as described in its CodePlex site is “a new cross-browser JavaScript library...

Combining WCF Data Services, JSONP and jQuery

Combining WCF Data Services, JSONP and jQuery During Mike Flasko’s session at MIX11, he showed how to create a JSONP aware WCF Data Service with a JSONPSupportBehavior attribute that is available for download from MSDN code gallery (and is supposed to be a part of Microsoft.Data.Services.Extensions namespace). In this post I’ll show a simple example that uses the attribute and jQuery in order to make a JSONP cross domain call for a WCF Data Service. Setting up the Environment First I started by creating two different ASP.NET web applications. The first application includes the...

Configuring WCF Data Services using Lambda Expressions

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Configuring WCF Data Services using Lambda Expressions One of the things that I avoid when I’m writing code is the use “magic strings”. Hardcoded strings are a code smell and should be rarely used. When using WCF Data Service configuration object you’ll have to pass the entity set’s string name to the configuration methods which as I wrote I would like to avoid. This is why in today’s post I’m going to extend the DataServiceConfiguration object to support lambda expressions instead of string parameters. Data Service Configuration Extensions I’ve created a simple static class that includes two new extension methods: SetEntitySetAccessRule<DataSource>...
