We will briefly touch all aspects of ASP.NET MVC by creating a new ASP.NET MVC web application based on this Visual Studio template. Besides view, controller, and model, new concepts including ViewData—a means of transferring data between controller and view, routing—the link between a web browser URL and a specific action method inside a controller, and unit testing of a controller are also illustrated in this article.

The article starts with the discussion of Problem, that is, what we need to do to achieve success for the article's topic-Blogs so to speak. Then it moves on to Design where we decide on and write down the physical requirements for our feature. And finally comes the Solution part where we discuss how to implement all the requirements for each feature.

Implementing a Basic HelloWorld WCF (Windows Communication Foundation) Service

by Mike Liu | December 2008 | .NET BPEL Microsoft SOA

SOA is an architectural design pattern by which several guiding principles determine the nature of the design. Basically, SOA states that every component of a system should be a service, and the system should be composed of several loosely-coupled services.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.WCF is an umbrella technology that covers ASMX web services, .NET remoting, WSE, Enterprise Service, and System Messaging. It is designed to offer a manageable approach to distributed computing, broad interoperability, and direct support for service orientation. WCF supports many styles of distributed application development by providing a layered architecture. At its base, the WCF channel architecture provides asynchronous, untyped message-passing primitives. Built on top of this base are protocol facilities for secure, reliable, transacted data exchange and a broad choice of transport and encoding options. In this article by Mike Liu, we will implement a basic WCF service from scratch.
