WCF: Building Secure, Reliable and Transacted Distributed Services
I just went to the session "Windows Communication Foundation: Building Secure, Reliable and Transacted Distributed Services" by Shy Cohen, that brought a very good overview of the different aspects to building great services with all the quality attributes mentioned in the title. The basic message is pretty straightforward: WCF has everything aboard you need to build this kind of services, thanks to the operational behavior model that allows you to specify transaction requirements, role-based access, etc.
I'm planning to extend my previous WCF demo on POP3 protocol tunneling in the near future to incorporate some of these features. Another great thing to check out is the use of MSMQ as a transport protocol for WCF, in combination with the new Dead Letter Queue (DLQ) features in Windows Vista. It reminds me of the pre-WCF days when I built a simple MSMQ service-oriented messaging system based on a service description dubbed MQDL (read more).Del.icio.us
