Making WCF Output a single WSDL file for interop purposes.
Tuesday, March 16, 2010 10:42 PM

WCF clients understand this type of schema without issue, and it conforms to the requisite standards as far as WSDL definitions go. However, some non Microsoft stacks will only work... Read More...

Silverlight 3 and WCF Faults
Tuesday, July 14, 2009 3:57 PM
On  a previous project that utilised WCF and Silverlight 2, I began implementing an error handling strategy that was going to rely on certain FaultExceptions being propagated to the Silverlight client. Well it turned out that Silverlight 2 does not support FaultExceptions so that was not going to fly and a custom solution was built. Well Silverlight 3 does... Read More...

Hopefully, you have read parts one , two and three in previous posts to get a good idea on what I am trying to achieve. Basically, its a collect, store and display mechanism to store almost any...

WCF, IErrorHandler and propagating faults
Thursday, October 16, 2008 9:12 PM
On a recent project, I have needed to set up a generic error handler just above the service layer which ensured that only known exceptions were propagated up to the client in a controlled manner. This post contains information about how to write an IErrorHandler , but more importantly, it does contain an important point at the end about its implementation that... Read More...

EOAST - Evolution of a software thingy - Part 2
Monday, August 11, 2008 4:14 PM
In a part 1 of this series , I talked about what was the purpose of coming up with this "software thingy". Now I will tackle some of the design aspects that have evolved as I have been working on it. Just to mention the requirements again though, it must be able to gather and store information from literally any source, and not tied to one collection mechanism... Read More...
EOAST - Evolution of a software thingy - Part 1
Monday, August 4, 2008 4:48 PM
Its been a little while since I have blogged as I haven't had very many value items to add to the blogosphere lately. However, I have been steadily (albeit slowly) working away on a little software project that may or may not see the light of day, but it has been a fun learning experience, and may eventually come to something. If nothing else, its a good testbed... Read More...
