14:45 - 16:00 WEB203 Architecture & Design Best Practices
Alon Fliess and Ariel Ben Horesh
   
Will you build a house without turning to an architect? Will you build a machine before an engineer designed and defined the structure, functions, layout and the connection between the various parts? Despite the critical importance of the architecture, many projects skip this important phase. The will to reach a quick solution results a bad software quality that needs patches and is hard to maintain and change. Good architecture not only affects the final product but also the project process, the ability to test the product, implement it and expand it to the next versions. In this lecture we will understand the significance of architecture and design stage, and we will see practice methods that will help significantly to the success of the project.

14:45-16:00 DSE503 What is new in WCF 4.0
Erez Harari and Bernie Almosni
   
WCF is introducing exciting enhancements with the .Net framework 4.0 release. In this talk, we will cover some of the most interesting new features found in WCF 4.0 WS Discovery – A service can transmit multicast messages, to prove, that it is alive. On the other hand, a client can ask a service, whether it is alive. Routing – Using routing services, it is possible to do content based routing. Filtering rules are used by the routing service to determine the appropriate downstream service endpoint for each message. Simple default configuration – In WCF 4.0, new configuration defaults for default endpoints, binding and behavior are provided. This way it is possible to quickly create a service with no configuration file and no endpoint creation code. Serialization Enhancements - The new DataContractResolver provides new extensibility that are hooks useful for customizing CLR type mapping for the DataContractSerializer. This will enable dynamic management of known types. Restful services – WCF 4.0 include most of the WCF REST Starter Kit features. Workflow Services - Workflow services are the integration between WF and WCF. WF 4.0 was revolutionized and with it workflow services were improved. New activities, better performance, easier correlation makes workflow services a compelling new technology.
