Building the solution

This solution will take an existing WCF service and a client application and update them to use the Windows Azure Platform AppFabric Service Bus. The Service Bus will allow for asynchronous message broadcasting to all clients or synchronous point-to-point communication to the same endpoint. This is all done using Microsoft's highly available, scalable infrastructure.

The WCF binding configurations are made available after installing the AppFabric SDK. The SDK provides a collection of six bindings used for communication with the Service Bus. The corresponding WCF binding is listed as well (if applicable).

Service Bus WCF bindings are as follows:

  • BasicHttpRelayBinding (BasicHttpBinding): General purpose, SOAP 1.1
  • WebHttpRelayBinding ...
