RUSS’ TOOL SHED

Join Russ as he shows you how to use Visual Studio .NET

INTRO TO WEB SERVICES USINGVS.NET

One of the key ideas behind the .NET strategy is the concept of software as a service, or in short, Web services. This session will explain what a Web service is and provide an overview of its related technologies like XML, SOAP, and UDDI. We will demonstrate how the .NET Framework makes it easy to implement them for new and existing applications. This session will also provide concrete best practices for building XML Web services using Visual Studio .NET. We’ll answer many common questions like: How will my Web service scale? How can my XML Web services enable interoperability with Web services from other vendors as well as within my own organization? We’ll delve into building highly reliable and secure Web services. Also, we will discuss issues such as dealing with complex data types using WSDL (Web Services Description Language), as well as securing SOAP messages using encryption. We’ll see how developers can use enterprise-level XML Web services to simplify customer solutions.

ADVANCED WEB SERVICES USING ASP .NET

This session will explore some of the more advanced areas of SOAP in ASP.NET’s support for Web services. ASP.NET Web services are the preferred way for Web developers to expose Web services on the Internet. The goal is quick, easy, and highperforming SOAP services. We will look at how to use the SOAP extension classes to create some very interesting applications on top of the core SOAP architecture found within the .NET Framework. For instance, you can implement an encryption algorithm or screen scraping on top of the Web service call. We’ll dig into more advanced topics, explore the SOAP headers, and see ways to ensure security in our Web services.

.NET REMOTING ESSENTIALS

Microsoft .NET Remoting is the .NET technology that allows you to easily and quickly build distributed applications. All of the application components can be on one computer or they can be on multiple computers around the world. .NET Remoting allows client applications to use objects in other processes on the same computer or on any other computer to which it can connect over its network. During this presentation we will discuss what you will need to know to get started with .NET Remoting. We will talk about how .NET Remoting compares with DCOM, how to host remoted objects in a variety of applications, how to call remoted objects from a client application, how to control the lifetime of remoted objects, and how to secure remoting applications.
