This easy-to-use introduction to Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is ideal for developers who want to learn to build services on a company network or as part of an enterprise system. Built into Windows Vista and Longhorn, and available for Windows XP and Windows 2003, WCF provides a platform for service-oriented architecture (SOA) that enables secure and reliable communication among systems within an organization or across the Internet. With WCF, software developers can focus on their business applications and not the plumbing required to connect them. Furthermore, with WCF developers can learn a single programming API to achieve results previously provided by ASMX, Enterprise Services and .NET Remoting. Learning WCF removes the complexity of using this platform by providing detailed answers, explanations and code samples for the most common questions asked by software developers.

Windows Communication Foundation (or WCF, formerly code name "Indigo") provides a set of programming APIs that make it easy to build and consume secure, reliable, and transacted services. This platform removes the need for developers to learn different technologies such as ASMX, Enterprise Services and .NET Remoting, to distribute system functionality on a corporate network or over the Internet. The first truly service-oriented platform, WCF provides innovations that decouple service design and development from deployment and distribution - creating a more flexible and agile environment. WCF also encapsulates all of the latest web service standards for addressing, security, reliability and more.


Provides information and examples on using Windows Communication Foundation to build service-oriented applications.

3.0 von 5 Sternen WCF von einer Insiderin 25. Januar 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Naja, das Buch ist sicher sehr ausführlich und von einer Microsoft-Insiderin geschrieben, doch es mag an meinem persönlichen Lernstil liegen, dass ich mich damit etwas schwer tat. Die Themen werden immer erst anhand eines "Lab" gezeigt und danach wird dann erklärt, was man genau gemacht hat. Ich mag es halt lieber umgekehrt. Natürlich könnte man das in umgekehrter Reihenfolge lesen... Auch hat das Buch am Anfang eine sehr steile "Lernkurve" (auch wenn ich diesen Ausdruck nicht mag), die ich anstrengend fand. Jemanden mit einem anderen Lernstil mag das Buch schon begeistern, wie gesagt es ist auch umfassend und ausführlich, persönlich gebe ich aber nur 3 Sterne.
Noch ein Tipp: Manche gebraucht gekaufte Ausgabe bezieht sich auf Visual Studio 2005. Wer mit 2008 arbeitet, sollte aufpassen, dass er die Codebeispiele für die richtige Version von Visual Studio herunterlädt. Ausserdem gibt es auf der Blog-Seite der Autorin das komplette 1. Kapitel als Überarbeitung für Visual Studio 2008.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tolles WCF-Buch 9. September 2010
Ein wirklich tolles Buch zur WCF, welches vorallem durch seinen didaktischen Aufbau überzeugt. Für Entwickler stellt die WCF ja eine Herausforderung dar, da nun vieles "nur noch" via XML und Attribute konfiguriert wird. Deswegen sind die vielen praktischen Beispiele sehr hilfreich.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This should be the first WCF book you get 14. November 2007
Von Billy Hollis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
You may want to acquire various other WCF books for depth, but if you're just getting started with WCF, this is the book you want. There isn't another book out there that compares to it. It's cleanly written and nicely balances conceptual material on service orientation with the practicalities of Windows Communication Foundation.

Many other books on WCF take the form of a "brain dump" on WCF features, or get bogged down in conceptual discussion of Service Oriented Architecture. Instead, Ms. Bustamante has a very clear, logical path from simple WCF features to more complex. You won't be overwhelmed early, but you will eventually get to most of the advanced features you'll likely need. Other books, such as Juval Lowy's Programming WCF Services (Programming), can pick up at that point for the really advanced topics.

Many of the chapters contain step-by-step labs, and you can get working end results from the author's web site. They start easy and build nicely through more complex concepts.

The sample code in the book is in C#, but if you happen to be a Visual Basic developer (as I am), you're not left out. Many of the labs and samples are also available in VB on the author's web site.

The book was unfortunately published too early to include definite coverage of the Visual Studio 2008 features for automatically generating some of the code you need to use WCF. Those capabilities are in the Visual Studio 2008 beta now and will be released in the next few months. Some of the labs could have been simplified by using those Visual Studio features. But, on the positive side, working through the labs in more detail will give you a more in-depth understanding of the subject and enable you to use the Visual Studio features more effectively.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Be Sure To Get The Correct Printing 24. November 2009
Von Larry W. Clement - Veröffentlicht auf
There were two printings of the first edition. The 2nd printing has all the labs and examples in VS2008. The first printing uses VS2005. I ordered this book from Amazon well after the 2nd printing was out (I ordered the book in late April 2009...the 2nd printing was in Aug 2008)...BUT...Amazon still sent me the first printing which is less than helpful given that our office has moved to VS2008.

You can get an update of Chapter 1 from the author's blog site. But you will not be able to see updates to the remainder of the book. You should insist that Amazon tell you which print version you're getting before having this book shipped.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A 'must buy' for WCF 18. Juni 2007
Von P. D. Besly - Veröffentlicht auf
I have trawled round quite few books, articles, samples etc which all promised instant knowledge of WCF. Fortunately I came across Michele's book before I gave up in despair. I found the style just refreshing; it talked you through the concepts in bite-sized chunks and never tried to swamp you in technology.
Not just that, but Hands-On-Labs as well; yes, labs that work out of the box and demonstrate the principal at issue. Not just labs but solutions too that actually work. It does exactly what it says on the tin.
I've found this "tell it how it is and provide working samples" to be a real novelty in the WCF space.
If you want to get WCF-competent, then get this book. If you want to trash around in the dark for a few more weeks, then there's plenty of others I could suggest.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Master WCF with this book 12. Juli 2007
Von K. LEW - Veröffentlicht auf
A very thorough treatment of WCF backed by hands-on labs. The labs are simple yet drive the concepts home. And once you've done a lab you can easily apply the lesson in your professional project.

Chapters 1 -5 and 8 are the most useful to my situation, although I would have liked chapter 8 (on Exceptions and Faults) to be a tad deeper on fault handling, especially regarding the catching of FaultException<T> at the client side.

That said, off the bat I was professionally operational as soon as I had digested chapter 1. Chapter 2 explained Contracts, the agreement between services and clients. That chapter clarifies how server and client sides cooperate. Chapter 3 explains Bindings and allows you to make wise choices regarding which channel etc... will best serve your need. Chapter 4 explains Hosting. It was good to get simple but very helpful tips like the recommendation to have a console host in the project even though the main production hosting will be say, IIS or a Windows Service host. The console host is so invaluable during debugging sessions where I do not have to constantly stop and start a Windows service host. Chapter 5 adds more to hosting by explaining instancing and when the need for concurrency arises.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Amazon is selling the out-of-date 2007 version, not the updated 2009 version 11. September 2012
Von J. Thomas Graham - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The author states on the book's website:

"....Learning WCF first edition was originally printed by O'Reilly in 2007. It was reprinted in August 2008 and then again in May 2009 to reflect changes to the existing book for Visual Studio 2010 (this mostly affected Chapter 1 labs which rely on the developer tools) and some minor updates throughout the book that were necessary to reflect working with Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 3.5. Check the print date on your copy to be sure you have the May 2009 version if you are completing labs with Visual Studio 2010...."

I'm disappointed to have received, in September 2012 from Amazon, not the current 2009 version of this book, but the older 2007 version. Possibly the problem was caused when O'Reilly designated the updated version a "printing" rather than an "edition."

So, I'm using WCF Step By Step by John Sharp instead. Its practical learn-by-doing approach works well for me. Chapter 1 provided a walk-through example that I was able to adapt to create a working prototype of the app I had in mind when I set out to learn how to use WCF, so I don't think I'll need much more for now. My goals were pretty simple-- I wanted a data source for a SharePoint/InfoPath solution that was not tightly coupled to the database server.
