Microsoft Windows Server AppFabric Cookbook
'Microsoft Windows Server AppFabric Cookbook' is full of immediately useable recipes showing you how to get the most from WCF and WF services using Windows Server AppFabric, leveraging the right capabilities for building composite solutions on the .NET platform. In addition to its cookbook style, which ensures the solutions are presented in a clear step-by-step manner, its explanations go into the right level of detail, making it good learning material for everyone who has experience with some of the challenging aspects of WCF and WF development from a scalability, configuration and management perspective. The book is designed in such a way that each recipe is presented as a separate, standalone entity and reading of other, prior recipes is not required. If you are a .NET developer or WCF/WF developer, then this book is for you. This book does not assume any prior knowledge of Windows AppFabric. However, a basic understanding of .NET Framework 4.0, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF) technologies is required.
