Popular author Jeffrey Hasan will draw you into the service-oriented architecture (SOA) mindset, in the context of the release of Indigo—the new Web services protocol and infrastructure support for SOA. Now is the time to consider SOA and to think about how to architect applications using XML messages and loosely-coupled services. With this book, you can get a head start on building SOA applications, using the .NET Framework combined with the Web Services Enhancements (WSE) 2.0 toolkit.
Web services are hot, and with the release of WSE 2.0, Microsoft developers now have a toolkit that makes it easy to implement industry-standard specifications for building secure, reliable Web services. This book provides deep insight into the release of the WSE toolkit: blending theory with ample C# code samples, and directly teaching you how to implement SOA solutions that are based on specifications such as WS-Security, WS-Policy, and WS-Addressing. Most .NET-based Web services are simply containers for limited RPC-style methods. This book will show you how to shift your development paradigm to create Web services that process sophisticated XML messages within a secure, service-oriented, loosely-coupled architecture. Jeff gives you the practical information you need today, while at the same time preparing you for what you will need tomorrow.

As Web Services start getting implemented, most of the work on understanding and implementing useful services has been dominated by developers in the Java/J2EE world. But Microsoft has built a parallel world around its C#/.NET platform. This book, then, can be seen as part of its response. Hasan rolls out the now plentiful Web Services standards; like WS-Security, WS-Policy and WS-Addressing. He shows how these are implemented in .NET. But his book is more than a simple exposition of these standards. He puts all these within the context of a Service Oriented Architecture, where the programming language is (unsurprisingly) C#. He tries a little re-education here. Many programmers meeting Web Services for the first time often have prior acquaintance with SOAP. What often ends up happening is that they then conceive of implementing a Web Service as a set of remote procedure calls, using SOAP to access the RPCs. Hasan shows that this is seriously non-optimal. Far better is a looser coupled message passing and processing design. It is within this context that most of the book is presented. Along the way, he introduces WS Enhancements 2.0. This is used to define and deliver vital features for real world business applications. Features like secure messaging. All that remains is for you to write an application.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
