Communicating From Silverlight 4 – My session at the SDP

December 30, 2009

Today at the SDP I gave a lecture on the different ways we can communicate with the web from Silverlight 4. We talked about the different HTTP Stacks Silverlight offers and the many communication types & technologies you can use, such as:

  • Simple http requests
  • Restful services
  • Syndication (Rss/Atom) feeds
  • ASMX Web Services
  • WCF services
  • WCF Data Services
  • TCP communication
  • UDP communication

Yes, you can do all the above with Silverlight 4 !

In addition, we talked about different WCF scenarios that you can achieve in Silverlight 4, such as:

  • Binary message encoding
  • Catching SOAP Faults
  • Passing HTTP & SOAP Headers
  • Authentication
  • Using Duplex

You can download the presentation and the code samples from here.

The lecture’s recording will be available from the SDP site in a few days, so stay tuned…
