Prasanna's Blog BizTalk, WCF, C# and Software Factories

The Web Service Software Factory (also known as the Service Factory) is an integrated collection of tools, patterns, source code and prescriptive guidance that helps Architects to enforce / streamline constraints to quickly and consistently construct Web services that adhere industry standard architecture and design patterns. The Service Factory provides guidance that addresses many of the challenges associated with building WCF and ASP.NET Web services and the components of a distributed application. These challenges include:

  • Designing WCF and ASMX messages and service interfaces.
  • Creating service contracts from existing WSDL and XSD files.
  • Applying exception shielding and exception handling.
  • Designing business entities in the domain model.
  • Translating messages to and from business entities and service data types(This is still crude, and i dont understand why they dont provide a descent mapping tool like the one comes with biztalk , more over there are no provisions to typecast datatypes which i reckon is must)
  • Designing, building, and invoking the data access layer.
  • Validating many aspects of the service using code analysis.
  • Applying message-level security to WCF services.
  • Migration made easy from asmx to wcf
  • message validation at service layer (Cool stuff).
