Creating RESTful Web Services with WCF 3.5
My inaugural article titled “Creating RESTful Web Services with Windows Communication Foundation” is up at developer.com. Go give it a read, if you dare! I recently spent quite a while digging into the REST implementation in WCF 3.5 (Beta 2): WebGet/WebInvoke, WebOperationContext, WebServiceHost and their ilk. It’s some pretty interesting stuff.
Feel free to make
jabs comments on my article here or on the developer.com website… I welcome all feedback! Got questions? I’m happy to answer anything I can, and help research the stuff I can’t.
For the article I put together a working (simple) blog engine service, which was fun. You can download the source on the last page of the article. I got to play around with a glimpse into what LINQ can do–powerfull stuff. Phil Haack was right, implementing a blog engine really is today’s “Hello World”.
