Windows Communication Foundation Course Overview

Windows Communication Foundation Course Overview

The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) course is designed to immerse learners in the essentials and advanced features of WCF, a framework for building service-oriented applications. Through comprehensive modules, participants will explore various aspects of WCF including its architecture, essential components, and the creation of distributed applications.

Starting with Module 1: WCF Essentials, learners will understand the basics of WCF, addressing mechanisms, hosting options, and client-side programming. As they progress, they will delve into Service Contracts and Data Contracts, learning to manage operation overloading, contract inheritance, serialization, and data equivalence.

Instance Management and Operations modules will cover different service behaviors, instance deactivation, and operation types like Request-Reply and One-Way. The course also addresses handling Faults, implementing Transactions, and managing Concurrency, ensuring learners can create robust and efficient WCF services.

In advanced topics, participants will focus on Security, understanding authentication, authorization, and secure data transfer, as well as leveraging the Service Bus for cloud-based communication. By the end of the course, learners will be equipped with the knowledge to build secure, scalable, and interoperable distributed applications using WCF.

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.
