On successfully completing the M10263 course candidates will be able to:
  • Implement Service-Oriented Architecture tenets in WCF services
  • Host WCF services in a variety of Windows hosts
  • Define and implement WCF service contracts, data contracts and message contracts
  • Use multiple endpoints with various messaging patterns
  • Test, troubleshoot, monitor, and diagnose WCF services
  • Ensure service reliability using transactions and message queues
  • Secure WCF services using message and transport security
  • Extend WCF using behaviours, dispatchers, inspectors and formatters

Course Prerequisites

Candidates attending the M10263 Microsoft training course should have an understanding of the problem-solving techniques that apply to software development and a general understanding of the purpose, function and features of the .NET Framework. Candidates are also required to have experience with: developing software using Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2010, object-oriented design and development using the C# programming language and n-tier application design and development.
