This three-day instructor-led course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to develop distributed applications using WCF 4 and Microsoft€ Visual Studio€ 2010.
Important Note: Course 10263A is designed for experienced .NET developers who are interested in becoming Technology Specialists in the area of WCF application development (see intended audience and prerequisites in this syllabus). For classrooms that include less experienced students, instructors may choose to adjust the course timings and establish a slower pace through the training material. To deliver this course at a reduced pace, Microsoft Learning suggests teaching Modules 1-7 during the three days of classroom training and leaving module 8 for the students to explore on their own after the course is completed. This will enable the instructor to spend more time ensuring that students fully understand the concepts taught in the earlier modules. Learning Partners may also choose to extend the course materials and establish a 4-day customized training course that progresses at a slower pace.


This course is intended for professional .NET programmers who use Microsoft€ Visual Studio€ in a team-based, medium-sized to large development environment. Students should have experience consuming services within their Web and/or Windows€ client applications and be interested in learning to develop service-oriented applications (SOA) using WCF. Students should be experienced users of Microsoft€ Visual Studio€ 2008 SP1, as well as cursory familiarity with Microsoft€ Visual Studio€ 2010 for Windows€ client or Web application development.


After completing this course, students 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 behaviors, dispatchers, inspectors, and formatters.
