  • The Argument for WCF Hosting in .NET Core

    Should WCF Hosting be Supported in .NET Core? To a lot of people this seems like a strange question; the answer is obviously... yes? no? Well actually it is quite contentious with people on both sides of the issue fiercely arguing for their position. We’ll try to unpack the debate and explain the arguments on both sides.

  • Service-Oriented Architecture and Legacy Systems

    In this article, authors provide an overview of current SOA technologies and how to evolve in legacy environments. They also discuss the topics of SOAP vs. REST web services, Enterprise Application Integration and incremental transition to SOA in legacy environments.

  • Why SOA Should Be Viewed As “Dependency-Oriented Thinking”

    Ganesh Prasad proposes minimizing service dependencies in a SOA implementation rather than avoiding point-to-point connections in order to obtain a more flexible system that can evolve over time.

  • Sharing Code in WCF without Code Generation

    One of the principal problems with normal WCF development is code reuse. No matter how well you design your classes on the server, once the proxy generator has touched them you get nothing but simple DTOs. This article shows how to bypass the proxy generator so that your client and server can share code.

  • How to Extend the Axis2 Framework to Support JVM Based Scripting Languages

    Heshan Suriyaarachchi covers some of the key concepts of the Apache Axis2 Web Service engine and how it can be extended to support JVM based scripting languages such as Jython, Jruby, etc allowing them to be used to both expose web services and write web service clients.

  • REST and SOAP: When Should I Use Each (or Both)?

    Web developers today have a myriad of technologies they can choose from; for example, the two approaches for interfacing to the web with web services, namely SOAP and REST. Both approaches work, both have advantages and disadvantages to interfacing to web services, but it is up to the web developer to make the decision of which approach may be best for each particular case.

  • Resource-Oriented Architecture: The Rest of REST

    In this first article in the Resource-Oriented Architecture series, Brian Sletten discusses the REST architecture style, the history of SOA, SOAP and WS-*, the Semantic Web, URLs as identifiers, URIs and URNs, freedom of form, logically-connected late-binding systems, HATEOAS, and the impact of the Semantic Web upon software systems.

  • A Decade of SOA: Where are we, Where are we Going?

    SOA is 10 years old. InfoQ has gathered Jeff Andres, Eric Ballou, Dave Hollander and William El Kaim, all Enterprise Architects with a long experience in SOA, to share their perspectives on where we are and where we are heading, as part of a virtual panel. They talk about Reuse, Business/IT alignment, Governance,...

  • Rationalizing the Presentation Tier

    Thin client paradigm characterized by web applications is a kludge that needs to be repudiated. Old compromises are no longer needed and it's time to move the presentation tier to where it belongs. In this article, Ganesh Prasad and Peter Svensson explains how and why.

  • Book Published: Essential Windows Communication Foundation

    InfoQ is pleased to provide a hosted chapter from the recently published "Essential Windows Communication Foundation" authored by Steve Resnick, Richard Crane, and Chris Bowen.

  • Open Source WS Stacks for Java - Design Goals and Philosophy

    InfoQ's Stefan Tilkov questioned lead developers of Apache Axis2, Apache CXF, Spring Web Services, JBossWS and and Sun’s Metro about their design goals, their approach towards Java and Web services standards, data binding, accessing XML, interoperability, REST support, and framework maturity. The results revealed many similarities and some noteworthy differences.

  • Making Sense of all these Crazy Web Service Standards

    Michele Leroux Bustamante explains the most relevant WS-* standards used today in terms of their actual implementation among WS platforms (with a focus on Java and .NET), their level of adoption and readiness. If you are new to web services or to the WS* protocols, or you are having difficulty keeping up with the pace of change in this area, this article should help.
