Written by Microsoft software legend Juval Lowy, Programming WCF Services is the authoritative introduction to Microsoft's new, and some say revolutionary, unified platform for developing service-oriented applications (SOA) on Windows. Relentlessly practical, the book delivers insight, not documentation, to teach developers what they need to know to build the next generation of SOAs.
After explaining the advantages of service-orientation for application design and teaching the basics of how to develop SOAs using WCF, the book shows how you can take advantage of built-in features such as service hosting, instance management, asynchronous calls, synchronization, reliability, transaction management, disconnected queued calls and security to build best in class applications. Programming WCF Services focuses on the rationale behind particular design decisions, often shedding light on poorly-documented and little-understood aspects of SOA development. Developers and architects will learn not only the "how" of WCF programming, but also relevant design guidelines, best practices, and pitfalls. Original techniques and utilities provided by the author throughout the book go well beyond anything that can be found in conventional sources.
Based on experience and insight gained while taking part in the strategic design of WCF and working with the team that implemented it, Programming WCF Services provides experienced working professionals with the definitive work on WCF. Not only will this book make you a WCF expert, it will make you a better software engineer. It's the Rosetta Stone of WCF.

Juval once again delivers a piece of work that is sure to become the de-facto standard for synthesizing the next generation of software engineering. As a major addition to the .NET Framework, WCF is not merely a new option available to the .NET professional, it is the new standard technology for developing distributed applications on the .NET platform while making true standards-based cross-platform interoperability tenable. In his classic writing style, the author resists the temptation to over-hype the technology by quickly getting right to the point and remaining on task throughout the book. Almost immediately, the reader is immersed in not only the ¿how¿ behind WCF, but also, and perhaps of even more importance, the ¿why¿. Make no mistake, WCF is truly revolutionary- and as with all gold rushes that follow releases of this magnitude, choosing the right resources to master it is critical. This book, along with the rich and highly relevant resources available on the IDesign website will provide the intermediate to advanced .NET developer with a deep understanding and a wealth of resources for quickly getting to a level of proficiency and advancing on to mastery.
