  • 1. 2014 WCF Configuration The basics
  • 2. 2 The most important thing to remember about WCF services is just as simple as…
  • 3. 3 Address: Service’s URI Binding: Specifies transports (HTTP, TCP …) and protocols (Security, Reliability …) Contract: Interface that defines the contract
  • 4. 4 Major Sections of the Configuration File -- Server Side -- <configuration> <system.serviceModel> <services> <endpoint> </endpoint> </services> <bindings> </bindings> <behaviors> </behaviors> </system.serviceModel> </configuration>
  • 5. 5 <services> element • Contains all services the application hosts <services name=“<Complete Namespace>.OfferService” behaviorConfiguration=“OfferManagerServiceBehavior” > <endpoint address=“net.tcp://localhost:808/OfferManager.dev/OfferService.svc” binding=“netTcpBinding” contract=“<Complete Namespace>.IOfferManager” bindingConfiguration=“netTcpBinding”> </endpoint> </services> [This section is optional: a set of default endpoints are automatically added to your service]
  • 6. 6 <binding> element • contains the specifications for all bindings that can be used by endpoints • system provided or custom <bindings name=“netTcpBinding” portSharingEnabled="true" maxBufferSize="65536000" maxConnections="100" maxReceivedMessageSize="65536000“ … <Security mode="Transport" /> </bindings > [This section is optional]
  • 7. 7 <behaviors> element • elements that define the behaviors for a service or endpoint <behaviors> <serviceBehaviors> <behavior name="OfferManagerServiceBehavior"> <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" /> <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true"/> </behavior> </serviceBehaviors> <endpointBehaviors> <behavior name="myBehavior"> <callbackDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" /> </behavior> </endpointBehaviors> </behaviors> [This section is optional]
  • 8. 8 Demo • Open Visual Studio and create a new WCF project • Edit the Web.Config file and remove all the <system.serviceModel> section • Right click on the created SVC and select « View in browser » • It will work!
  • 9. 9 WCFConfiguration Editor
  • 10. 10 WCFConfiguration Editor
  • 11. 11 Major Sections of the Configuration File -- Client Side -- • At Betclic, no client side service configuration is needed because we’re using a PeerToPeer WCF library based on a service directory. Client side code looks like that one: IAlertServices srv = Locator.GetProxy<IAlertServices>(); • But if you need a client side configuration, just use: the WCFConfigurator Editor! (turn the page to see how)
  • 12. 12 WCFConfiguration Editor – Client configuration - Demo • Open Visual Studio and create an empty web application • Edit the Web.Config file with the WCFConfigurator editor (see slide#9) • On the left pane (Config) Select « Client » and click on « Create a new client…» • Choose the manual creation mode and select the service assembly from which you want to create a client • Go through the wizard and you should have the right configuration in your Web.Config file!
  • 13. 13 Links • Configuring Services Using Configuration Files • Configuring Bindings for WCF Services • System-Provided Bindings • Simplified Configuration • Choosing a Transport • Our WCF Training (By Cybermaxs)
