    New Web Services Interop site on MSDN

    Interoperability has been a primary goal of the web services standards from the beginning. After all, why would you go to the trouble to form a cross-industry initiative to essentially re-invent advanced distributed programming protocols like CORBA and DCOM, unless you could create standards that were broadly supported and truly interoperable? Interoperability is also fundamental to the whole promise of service-orientation. From it's inception, WCF was created to enable this interoperable, service...

    BizTalk 2009 Project System – Repair or no repair?

    Hi all I just had the funniest (NOT) experience (AGAIN) with the new BizTalk 2009 project system. Somehow I had gotten into a situation, where I could add all the usual artifacts to a BizTalk project except schemas. I could add orchestrations, send pipelines, receive pipelines, maps, flat file schemas, property schemas, and flat file wizard schemas. So the only thing I couldn’t add was “normal” schemas. I thought: Who cares? I can just add either a property schema or a flat file schema instead and...

    System.Web.Routing RouteTable not working with IIS?

    Most of the time I write simple apps that run in the local ASP.NET development server. I noticed when I started working with IIS more because of Windows Server AppFabric that my routes were not working when the web application is deployed in IIS. For Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4 and IIS 7.5 here is what I’ve learned. Step 1 - Make sure that you have installed the HTTP Redirection feature This one was the killer for me. I didn’t realize that this is not setup by the Web Platform Installer...

    Make WCF Simpler

    If there is one thing I hear from people over and over again it is this.  Please make WCF simpler, easier to understand and use.  I totally agree with this sentiment.  In fact, in .NET 4 we made it much easier but we still have a long way to go.  Once in a while each of us gets the opportunity to change the world for the better… (ok we aren’t solving world hunger here but…) If you want your voice to be heard take a minute and fill out this survey .
