    Un buon libro per avvicinarsi a WCF 4

    Quando ci si avvicina ad una nuova tecnologia, ed in particolare quando questa tecnologia è complessa come lo è Windows Communication Foundation, è importante, a mio modesto avviso, costruire delle solide basi teoriche, degli strumenti di base, che consentano, in seguito, di poter addentrarsi nei dettagli e nei casi particolari senza dover pagare dazio. Nel momento in cui si conosce la tecnologia (almeno le basi) è necessario, invece, avere a disposizione una reference guide in grado di fornire rapidamente le risposte cercate per poter essere immediatamente produttivi o per poter avere quell'input necessario a sbloccare un momento di difficoltà che ci blocca nel nostro lavoro quotidiano. Il libro che vi propongo è un libro della collana Step by Step di Microsoft Press, scritto da John Sharp (autore di altri linbri della serie Step by Step soprattutto su C#) ed è un ottimo strumento per chi si avvicina a WCF ed ha la necessità di costruire quel bagaglio di strumenti di base di cui parlavo in precedenza. Il libro non è una reference guide ma limitatamente ai concetti introduttivi di WCF 4.0 permette di avere rapidamente le informazioni cercate. Si tratta di un testo adatto a chi si trova per la prima volta alle prese con il framework WCF mentre lo è meno per chi conosce WCF e vuole approfondire l'argomento. Gli argomenti trattati non entrano quasi mai nello specifico ma si limitano a fornire una infarinatura di base (decisamente ben fatta, ma comunque di base) ma questa è, generalmente, una caratteristica della serie Step By Step e questo volume non è diverso dagli altri. La lettura scorre relativamente fluida (sempre considerando che si tratta di un libro pieno di vocaboli e termini tecnici), gli esempi sono sufficientemente spiegati ed il codice con gli esempi è scaricabile dal web. Se vogliamo trovare un punto a sfavore del libro, possiamo dire che la maggior parte del discorso è incentrato sulla visione web services di WCF e vengono poco presi in esame gli altri possibili bindings messi a disposizione da WCF. Credo che, però, questa sia una scelta dell'autore visto il taglio beginner del testo e la vastità del mondo bindings in WCF (di fatto, il primo utilizzo che si fa di WCF da parte di chi si avvicina al framework è quello di sostituire i "vecchi" web service XML). In ogni caso se avete la necessità di studiare o approfondire la visione WCF non WebServices, allora questo libro non fa al caso vostro. Per concludere, a mio modesto avviso, si tratta di un buon libro da cui non ci si deve però aspettare il ruolo di reference guide su WCF. Se abbiamo bisogno della "bibbia" di WCF, quseto non è il nostro libro, mentre se dobbiamo avvicinarci al mondo WCF, probabilmente si tratta della scelta giusta.
