As I promised yesterday, in my blog about Part 1 of the series (click here to see it), I am releasing Part 2 of the series today. Part 2 focuses on handling Session State in Windows Communication Foundation, and although it builds on Part 1 of the series, you can download the “starting” source code and skip Part 1. In other words, each part of this series can either flow together or stand alone (hopefully).
As with Part 1 and this will be the case throughout the series, you get:
Easy to follow screen-shots (of the IDE and Source Code),
What you need to do in each step and most importantly why,
The “Before” and “After” source code (with comments).
Here’s the link for the location of Part 1 & 2: http://www.federaldeveloper.com/workshops/default.aspx
Stay tuned for Part 3, where the dreaded customer has added a new requirement to the system that will force us to implement Transactions within our solution. Windows Communication Foundation does a wonderful job of implementing Transactional programming, which I hope to do a good job in explaining.
As I’ve said before: If you learn by doing (and seeing a lot of screen-shots of how your code should look) then hopefully you will find this series useful.
