Web Services in Microsoft Azure

by Nathan A. Duchene Richard J. Dudley | November 2010 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

Technically, web services are part of the web role, but their use and development are so distinctly different than web forms that we'll look at these separately.

The simple storage services have their own REST API and client library developed, but if we want to add data into SQL Azure, we'll have to create our own web services.

In this article by Richard J. Dudley and Nathan A. Duchene, authors of Microsoft Azure: Enterprise Application Development, we'll:

  • Gain an overview of WCF services
  • Build the WCF service for the Jupiter Motors portal

In this article by Matjaz B. Juric, author of the book WS-BPEL 2.0 for SOA Composite Applications with IBM WebSphere 7, we will familiarize ourselves with some important activities offered by BPEL, particularly activity names, loops, delays, empty activities, and process termination. We will not discuss concrete use cases where these activities can be used, because they are well known to developers. Let us first look at loops.
