I took the certification exam for 70-503 - .NET Framework 3.5 - Windows Communication Foundation last month and passed it with a score of 700. Passing score is 700. I prepared from the "Programming WCF Services – Juval Lowy" book. This book is one of the best resources for WCF, it is more like a reference book. The MCTS book does not cover a lot.

Up to now I haven't explained what my mobile test application does. The main thing I wanted to test was calling a WCF service.

Last night (July 22, 2008) I presented on Windows Communication Foundation vs. Web Services at the Kansas City .NET User Group. I talked about Web Services, and how they existed in the .NET 2.0 Framework, and compared them to the new WCF framework in .NET 3.0 and 3.5. There was a turnout of 57 developers, and Modis brought Gates BBQ! I've uploaded the presentation to my SkyDrive here. Many thanks to everyone who showed up to hear me ramble!

Selling the theory for SOA is pretty easy, the execution is harder because technically it isn't actually a very simple thing to do, let alone the changing of the structure of your IT organisation to house-keep. The book SOA Approach to Integration is aimed fairly and squarely at the Architect and Senior Developer who has the job of designing and implementing SOA technical level. The book is very resolute in keeping a strong focus on the technology and pleasantly realises that successful integration ...
Recently I have been working a lot with web services : developing new ones and maintaining some. All the web services I maintain return a XML string which are build manually using XMLDocument, XMLWriter etc. But I prefer to pass a complex type because it is easier to develop and maintain. Also the client who is using the web service would find it easy to see the XML schema returned if we are returning the complex type. If we are constructing a XML file and returning it as a string, then we will have ...

In a recent post, I commented how it would be awesome if there was an API for the United States Congress. I spoke to Lisa Coligan, National Director at Project Vote Smart, and asked her if they had any plans for an open API. Somewhat surprisingly, her answer was yes! Lisa says that vote-smart.org does "not currently have API but we're planning to in the future. We won't have it in time for 2006 elections but we hope to have it up and in place well before the 2008 elections." Now that would be really ...
