Web Services Architecture Domain Model

I’m not in a position to provide any details just yet, but a couple of us on the patterns & practices team have teamed up with heavy hitters like Jason Hogg, Beat Schwegler, Christian Weyer, Wojtek Kozaczynski, Maarten Mullender, Daniel Cazzulino, Victor Aprea, Hernan de Lahitte, and Pablo Galiano to provide some kick ass guidance around designing…

Principles of Web Service Design

John Evdemon just published 2 articles on the principles of web service design. The first one is titled Principles of Service Design: Service Patterns and Anti-Patterns and in my opinion should be required reading for anyone who is new to web service development. Specifically, anyone new to building web services should focus on his explanation of…

Interested in secure, interoperable web services?

Well, then you may want to tune into a webcast we’re recording live on Thursday the 25th. You can find out more about the webcast here. Okay, to get you up to speed quickly, we have this WS-I Basic Security Profile Sample Application which was designed by the WS-I organization and is implemented by all vendors…


Web Service Security Patterns: August CTP just dropped

Just a quick note to let you know that we just posted the August CTP release of the security patterns content to the community at http://practices.gotdotnet.com/projects/sopatterns. The biggest change from the last release is the inclusion of the Kerberos implementation pattern (that’s right, how to implement the KerberosToken in WSE 2.0) and the Kerberos primer in…


What you can expect to find here

You may not know this, but the patterns & practices team is pretty amped about making stuff that architects and Web service developers actually need (or at least make them happy). I know this because that’s what they pay me for 😉 If you’re building Web services, are involved in an integration project, or are just interested in topics around…


Okay, I think I’m straight

I was dorkin’ around with my workblog the other day and it dawned on me that I never posted about how I recently switched jobs … everyone blogs about this … cool, so let me tell you what I’m up to these days … and why you care. I’ve been at Microsoft for about 5.5 years…


Microsoft Web Services and Other Distributed Technologies Developer Center

I’ll just lay the canned spiel on ya: MSDN is pleased to announce the launch of the new Microsoft Web Services and Other Distributed Technologies Developer Center at http://msdn.microsoft.com/webservices/, a new and improved version of the Web Services Developer Center. In addition to the great Web services content, other technologies have been incorporated to provide one-stop…


Web Services Security Patterns … finally

The patterns & practices team has been working on a set of Web service security patterns for a few months now. Until today, the content was only available to those who were invited to join the community workspace. Now anyone can join the workspace and download the content. Better yet, a CHM version was just…


Deciding local-or-remote at runtime

I’ve seen a number of Web service implementations where there was a possibility that when deployed, the Web service and its client could end up on the same machine. This is most common when the client is a Web (HTML) application. In these scenarios, you certainly wouldn’t want your Web application to spin up the TCP…

Versioning at Tech-Ed 2005

I’m going to be doing a session at Tech-Ed in June titled, Versioning services and contracts on the .NET Framework. This is what the abstract looks like: As Web services continue to become the backbone of our connected systems, developers must plan for the profound ways the messages and their contracts will evolve. Failure to…
