AWS301: Add Web Reference, et. al. Reconsidered: Implementing Web Services the Better Way
This session shows the caveats of Web services as they are used today, merely stamped by code-centric wizards. You will learn how to think and act in a contract-first manner when developing Web services-oriented applications. The interface contract is the most important piece for a communication and defines the message exchanges between parties. Experience some tools, including an extension for Visual Studio .NET, that really can make your life as a Web service programmer easier and enable a more message- and service-like view on your Web services.
AWS302: DCOM, Remoting, COM+, MSMQ, Web Services - Oh My!
Microsoft offers a bunch of technologies to build connected systems or distributed applications. You can really go crazy when having to decide which technology to use when and how. This session gives you some guidelines to consider when making decisions in your next project. Learn how all the technologies fit into the SOA-story currently told and how to build service-oriented applications on the .NET platform today. See Remoting, Enterprise Services, ASMX, WSE and System.Messaging in action. You do not have to wait for the future.
VFE204: Web Services--Essentials
Just when you thought you had seen everything about application communication and integration, Web services comes your way. In this session you will learn and see how Web services work. The focus is on how you can design and develop Web services on the .NET platform rather than digging into the gritty details of any supported specification or talking about angle brackets. You will see why you would want Web services and their attendant benefits. Additionally, discussion will also be provided of what Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0 will provide in support of Web services.
