This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create service-oriented applications using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and VB.NET. Students Will Learn:
- Service-oriented architecture
- Web Services implementation
- Binding options
- Defining service contracts
- Defining data contracts
- WCF security options
- Hosting WCF services
- Choosing WCF bindings
- Managing service instances
- Fault handling
- WCF routing control
Students learn how to leverage the power of the .NET Framework to build Web Service applications that interoperate with consumer applications including other platforms and technologies. Students will learn how to configure addresses, bindings, and service and data contracts as well as how to use various techniques for developing endpoints to allow communication between consumer applications and the web services provider.
The course includes coverage of instance management, fault handling, and security. Students will learn how to use the WCF Routing Service for load balancing, content-based routing, and protocol bridging.
Comprehensive labs and exercises provide the students with experience creating both content server and consumer applications.
This course provides thorough coverage of the use of Windows Communication Foundation for service-oriented applications. Students requiring additional coverage of ASP.NET Web Forms, Windows Forms or Windows Presentation Foundation should contact HOTT or refer to HOTT's complete course listing for additional training courses.
Students unfamiliar with the VB.NET programming language should register for the 5-day WCF Programming Using VB.NET course instead. Course Prerequisites:
Prior experience with VB.NET is required. Note: Classes do not have fixed location.
