Distributed transaction using WCF

by Mike Liu | June 2010 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

WCF is the acronym for Windows Communication Foundation. It is Microsoft's latest technology that enables applications in a distributed environment to communicate with each other.

In this article series, we will first verify that the LINQNorthwind WCF service does not support distributed transaction processing. We will then explain how to enhance this WCF service to support distributed transaction processing and how to configure all related computers to enable distributed transaction support. To demonstrate this, we will propagate a transaction from the client to the WCF service and verify that all sequential calls to the WCF service are within one single distributed transaction. We will also explain the multiple database support of the WCF service and discuss how to configure MSDTC and the firewall for the distributed WCF service.

In this article by Mike Liu, author of  WCF 4.0 Multi-tier Services Development with LINQ to Entities We will cover the following topics in this article:

  • Creating the solution files
  • Testing the transaction behavior of the DistNorthwind WCF service
  • Enabling transaction flow in the service bindings
  • Modifying the service operation contract to allow transaction flow
  • Modifying the service operation implementation to require a transaction scope
  • Configuring the Distributed Transaction Coordinator for the distributed WCF service

How Microsoft Dynamics NAV fits a consultancy company

by Mark Brummel | June 2010 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 is a very complete ERP package, but unlike other ERP packages it has a design capable of providing an open structure and a development platform. The idea is to provide 80% of the solution out of the box and allow the other 20% to be designed by qualified business application developers.

In this article by Mark Brummel, author of  Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Application Design, we will learn how Microsoft Dynamics NAV fits a consultancy company. Most consultancy companies have project related processes. They take on larger projects that take a certain time to complete. Some consultancy companies also purchase and sell items.

We will discuss four different project scenarios and see how Microsoft Dynamics NAV can be used to support those. To do this we will create some modifications along the way.
