10263 – Developing WCF with Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 Training Course overview

This 10263 courses provides participants with the knowledge and skills to develop distributed applications using WCF 4 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2019.

Who should attend?

This course is intended for professional .NET programmers who use Microsoft Visual Studio in a team-based, medium-sized to large development environment. Students should have experience consuming services within their Web and/or Windows client applications and be interested in learning to develop service-oriented applications (SOA) using WCF. Students should be experienced users of Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 SP1, as well as cursory familiarity with Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 for Windows client or Web application development.

About This Course

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework for building service-oriented applications. Using WCF, you can send data as asynchronous messages from one service endpoint to another. A service endpoint can be part of a continuously available service hosted by IIS, or it can be a service hosted in an application. An endpoint can be a client of a service that requests data from a service endpoint. The messages can be as simple as a single character or word sent as XML, or as complex as a stream of binary data. A few sample scenarios include: • A secure service to process business transactions. • A service that supplies current data to others, such as a traffic report or other monitoring service. • A chat service that allows two people to communicate or exchange data in real time. • A dashboard application that polls one or more services for data and presents it in a logical presentation. • Exposing a workflow implemented using Windows Workflow Foundation as a WCF service. • A Silverlight application to poll a service for the latest data feeds.

What you will learn: • Learn to implement Service-Oriented Architecture tenets in WCF services. • Learn to host WCF services in a variety of Windows hosts. • Learn to define and implement WCF service contracts, data contracts, and message contracts. • Learn to use multiple endpoints in WCF with various messaging patterns. • Learn to test, troubleshoot, monitor, and diagnose WCF services. • Learn to ensure service reliability using transactions and message queues. • Learn to secure WCF services using message and transport security. • Learn to extend WCF using behaviors, dispatchers, inspectors, and formatters.
