.NET Services – Launch at PDC 08

Today we announced the CTP release of .NET Services! For quite a while now, I have been working on this project. It's great to see it announced and to have customers use our services. .NET Services consist of three services: the Service Bus, the Workflow Service, and my personal favorite: The Access Control Service.

My focus has almost exclusively been on the Access Control Service, so expect it to be the main topic of this blog for quite a while. The Service Bus, Workflow Service, and the portals use the Access Control Service so I will likely spend some time on those as well.

In a nutshell, the Access Control Service allows you factor access control code into a manageable collection of rules. Combined with Geneva Server and the Geneva Framework, you can do things like map groups to roles, and roles to permissions.
