AppFabric Caching Service Using SSL

Friday, February 1, 2013

I really like AppFabric distributed cache (previously called Velocity). It’s so simple to use and it has really strong features like notification based local cache. It basically has two versions, one is targeting for on premise and one is for the cloud (Azure). The API is similar which makes it very easy to move your application in later phases to the cloud. But back to my customer which security was a strong requirement because of the nature of his system which I won’t mention here but I’m sure you get the idea. His security requirements are that all connection...

Saturday, July 23, 2011

start with reading WCF Performance Using Datasets – Part 1. Can it be ? I asked this question over and over – because WCF is clearly faster (see Eyal Vardi comment in part 1).

I invite each one of you to try (write you own tester) my contract is simple: public interface IPerfService { DataSet LoadDataSet(DataSet...

Publish/Subscriber Using Routing Service (WCF4)

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Hi all. Download Code Few weeks ago I went to an interesting lecture of  Ido Flatow called: “What’s new in WCF4”. The lecture was very good mostly because it was the first time somebody gathered and organized the new abilities of WCF 4, and the material level in my opinion was pretty high. One of the features Ido talked about was the Routing Service. That feature just amazed me, I found it very powerful and useful in many scenarios: load balancing, on service failure, content base routing, bridge and more (MSDN Link). Pub/Sub Solutions I was at the time examining some pub/sub...

Passing Event Handlers Over WCF

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Hi It’s been a really long time since my last post. Lately I been working on a POC aimed  at building an infrastructure layer for accessing the data in the application. Currently this layer is based on Nhibernate and supports several functionalities like WCF interface and more. As part of the POC I encountered a problem and managed to give it a satisfying solution. I want to share the problem and the solution with you. The Problem I was building a complex object hierarchy – each object has a reference to a different object or to...

T3 Service Studio – The ultimate tool for testing your web services and WCF services

Monday, November 10, 2008

Hi During my work I developed many web services and now WCF services, I encountered a very useful tool called Web Service studio which allows invoking web method without writing any code - gives the ability to test web service without any client code. The tool was great but far from perfect: I encountered some bugs, the UI was in my opinion not as clear and comfortable as it could be and the main problem was not supporting WCF. So me and my friends: Ami Yolovich and Anat Katz started developing in our spare time our own web service studio - we...

Friday, August 29, 2008

This post is the part 2 of the post Automatic updating web reference .NET it's deals with the same problems and solutions with one important different: we are using WCF service instead of Web Service. The Solutions (from the previous post) Runtime proxy solution. Build process solution. 1. Runtime WCF proxy solution I searched around the web and found several solutions but all of them were partial: they all needed WSDL and supports only HTTP binding (I'm using TCP binding). Please tell me if you have any suggestions. I'm currently working on...
