WCF and .NET Code Access Security

From my recent investigations and some talk with folks from the Indigo/WCF team it seems that WCF currently only supports full trust CAS scenarios.
This means that you

  • a) cannot use WCF in standard Smart Client/No-Touch Deployment/ClickOnce applications and
  • b) cannot use WCF services (like .svc implementations) in a partially trusted ASP.NET web site as found in every serious hosting space.

Not sure whether this all will change for v1 RTM.

Expressing Contract Explicitness with a custom Domain Specific Language

Seems like Edward and myself are ready to talk a bit more in-depth about what we are working on. We are currently playing around with some thoughts of a service and data contract DSL and try to implement it with with Microsoft's early versions of the DSL Toolkit. A bit of a pain, but the whole story is just evolving...

If you are interested on the Why and also the How of DSLs – not just from a Microsoft-branded perspective - go and read Martin Fowler’s most inspiring article on Language Workbenches.
Also go to an older blog post from me musing about the whole Code vs. Contract first vs. Explicitness vs. Anything-else-in-the-world story and how it relates to DSLs.

This is very exciting stuff (ooops, I was meant to avoid this term :)).


WSCF for VS 2005 - when???

UPDATE: Daniel just confirmed and closed the bug.

We have a theoretically working version and build of WSCF for Visual Studio 2005. It looks nice, believe me :)

But there is one major and annoying bug in the .NET Framework 2.0 which simply blocks our code generation features:

   Bug Details: Null reference error when using wsdl.exe /server to generate code from metadata

So we all still need to be patient. I have a confirmation from ASMX’s PM, Daniel Roth, that the bug has been fixed in the meantime but this fix did not yet make it into any public build.
Stay tuned. Thanks.

Codenames: Avalon - what does it mean?

Yeah, Avalon is no longer Avalon, but rather WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation).

But I always asked myself what does Avalon mean. Well, it turns out that "Avalon" derives from the old Irish word "Avaloch" – which means "a place of apples".
Just to let you know ;)

"Ja - halooo erstmal...": .NET User Group-Vortrag in Paderborn über Windows Communication Foundation (aka Indigo)

Nein, nein, ich möchte mich nicht mit diesem berühmten Bürger der Stadt Paderborn anlegen oder gar vergleichen – aber ich würde mich sehr freuen, viele Teilnehmer beim .NET Usergroup-Treffen am 5.9.2005 begrüßen zu dürfen.

Thema: "Entwicklung verteilter Anwendungen mit WCF (aka Indigo): mehr als nur Web Services++"

Und wie immer der Dank an INETAChristian und Damir.
