    Tomasz Janczuk has published one really nice blog post on Silverlight PolingHttpPushBinding usage.

    In my recent articles I have introduced a sample pub/sub application using Silverlight’s HTTP polling duplex protocol, an AJAX client talking the same protocol, as well as discussed server side performance of the protocol. The latter post pointed out scalability challenges associated with deploying a WCF service using the Silverlight HTTP polling duplex protocol in a web farm scenario. This article introduces one possible solution to the scale-out problem, enabling an applications utilizing the protocol to accommodate an arbitrary number of concurrent clients through scale-out of the backend infrastructure.

  • Using web service faults with the new SL3 client HTTP stack

    Yavor Georgiev is talking about web service faults with the new SL3 client HTTP stack.

    Carlos, one of our team members, has posted an quick blog post on how to use SOAP faults with the new client HTTP stack, introduced in SL3. This makes configuring faults significantly easier: there is no need to write custom code in your WCF service, and all you need to do is add one line of code to the Silverlight client.

    Cheryl Simmons has posted a table that summarizes some of the basic HTTP capabilities of Silverlight 3 and whether browser or client HTTP handling supports the capability.

    In previous versions of Silverlight, the browser handled all the HTTP communication for the Silverlight plug-in. The browser HTTP stack works well but has some limitations including the HTTP methods you can use and the response codes that are accepted. In Silverlight 3, you can opt-in to have the Silverlight client perform the HTTP handling. By opt-in, I mean, if you don't specifically choose the client to perform HTTP processing, it will be done by the browser, just like it always has been. However, if you decide you need to call REST services, you can easily do this with Silverlight3 by opting in to the client HTTP stack.

  • AJAX Client for HTTP Polling Duplex WCF Channel in Microsoft Silverlight 3

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Aug 06, 2009 (1 month ago)
    Tomasz Janczuk has posted a sample which shows how an AJAX browser application can receive asynchronous data notifications from a WCF service exposed using the HTTP polling duplex protocol that shipped in Microsoft Silverlight 3.
    The sample code contains a reusable, standalone JavaScript library (sl3duplex.js) which implements the client side of the polling duplex protocol. The full source code and Visual Studio solution is available for download. Please also check the Silverlight development environment prerequisites.
  • Pub/sub Sample Using HTTP Polling Duplex WCF Channel in Microsoft Silverlight 3

    Check out this great blog post written by Tomasz Janczuk on how to accomplish a pub/solution using WCF and Silverlight. Full source and VS solution are available.

    This sample demonstrates how a Micrososoft Silverlight 3 application can consume asynchronous data notifications from the server using the polling duplex protocol of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). I am also discussing selected aspects of the implementation, in particular related to performance.

  • Silverlight 2 and the SSL-enabled, HTTPS and other non-HTTP services

    Al Pascual comes with two posts about a problem he has encountered while consuming a service over a secure connection with Silverlight 2. The first one is focused on using a cross domain WCF Service with SSL and the second is about how to hadle HTTPS and non-HTTP services in Silverlight.

    When trying to access a web service, either WCF (.svc) or asmx in Silverlight works well until we add SSL, when trying to access and using fiddler, complains about the clientaccesspolicy.xml by a crossdomain error:

    An error occurred while trying to make a request to URI This could be due to attempting to access a service in a cross-domain way without a proper cross-domain policy in place, or a policy that is unsuitable for SOAP services.
