Programming WCF Services is the authoritative,
bestselling guide to Microsoft's unified platform for developing modern
service-oriented applications on Windows. Hailed as the definitive
treatment of WCF, this book provides unique insight, rather than
documentation, to help you learn the topics and skills you need for
building WCF-based applications that are maintainable, extensible, and
reusable.

Author Juval Löwy -- one of the world's top .NET
experts -- revised this edition to include the newest
productivity-enhancing features of .NET Framework 4 and the Azure
AppFabric Service Bus, as well as the latest WCF ideas and techniques.
By teaching you the why and the how of WCF programming,
Programming WCF Services will help you master WCF and make you a
better software engineer.

  • Learn about WCF architecture and
    essential building blocks, including key concepts such as reliability
    and transport sessions
  • Use built-in features such as service
    hosting, instance and concurrency management, transactions, disconnected
    queued calls, security, and discovery
  • Master the Windows Azure
    AppFabric Service Bus, the most revolutionary piece of the new cloud
    computing initiative
  • Increase your productivity and the quality
    of your WCF services by taking advantage of relevant design options,
    tips, and best practices in Löwy's ServiceModelEx
    framework
  • Discover the rationale behind particular design
    decisions, and delve into rarely understood aspects of WCF
    development

"If you choose to learn WCF, you've chosen well.
If you choose to learn with the resource and guidance of Juval
Löwy, you've done even better... there are few people alive today
who know WCF as well."
--Ron Jacobs, Senior Technical
Evangelist for WCF, Microsoft Corporation

THIS REVIEW IS STILL IN PROGRESS
---------------------------------

I really don't like the dry way of explaining the subject of this book. WCF (or any programming topic) is dull as it is so why make it worse by the approach of listing facts and have no natural flow of the topic which is complicated even for a senior developer like me.

This is just listing of facts about WCF which is great but that's no way to learn something.

There's no guidance from the author on how to execute a certain example. THIS REVIEW IS STILL IN PROGRESS

I really don't like the dry way of explaining the subject of this book. WCF (or any programming topic) is dull as it is so why make it worse by the approach of listing facts and have no natural flow of the topic which is complicated even for a senior developer like me.

This is just listing of facts about WCF which is great but that's no way to learn something.

There's no guidance from the author on how to execute a certain example. There's no encouragement to build the example yourself. It's like the author is saying: It's there, you wanna try to build it, go ahead, I won't stop you but don't count on following on with this example because next section it might not be there anymore.

There's no clear distinguishing from the author on which parts belong to WCF classes, which are classes that are built by the author, and which are examples to demonstrate something.

Here's a specific example of the author explaining his work instead of the WCF classes. Page 244 explains the DuplexChannelFactory. It lists some members of the class, the author makes a comment about how it's difficult to use this class because the parameter is of type object and is not type safe (which is correct) then he offers his modified class which is type safe and then start to explain how to use this modified class. Well, I don't want to use this modified class. I just don't want to. Even if it's great, wonderful and amazing. I didn't buy the book to read about Programming Juval Lowy's WCF. No, I want to read about .NET's WCF with all stupidity, flaws, and lack of type safety. ...more
