People often ask me, "What's new in WCF 4?"

Today on 10-4 we are going to look at one of the exciting new capabilities of WCF in .NET 4, the WCF Routing Service. As you will see in this episode, with the WCF  Routing Service you can now
  • Bridge Protocols
  • Do content based routing
  • Provide server-side failover with backup lists

For the very latest, be sure to check out my blog or the team blog

  • Here's a link to the Routing Service Blog, another Channel 9 video that discusses the Routing Service in general, and the current set of Routing Service Samples and Docs over on MSDN.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place for this kind of comment....but after searching through the assembled content, I thought I'd comment that these video links should advertise the length somewhere in the summary.  If there's somewhere to make general comments about Channel 9 (of this sort) could someone redirect this newbie?

    If you mouse over the play button and wait for the tool tip you will see a window that tells you the length.


  • How does the new routing service deal with security?  Can it support a scenario where the router receives a WS-Security secured message over HTTP and forwards it to another server, over HTTP, without unwrapping the security token?  Therefore, I want the security token processed by the destination service and not the router.  Is this supported?  (This would be similar to how WSE 3's SOAP router works.)

  • I have the same issue as JDugdeon.  I would like to pass a WS-Security token through the Routing Service.  It seems as though the Routing Service can only act as a web service proxy (as opposed to a SOAP intermediary).  When configured as a proxy, it would seem that the binding of the proxy would need to match the requesting/responding service binding.  In that case, the proxy would probably not ignore (and pass) the WS-Security token.  Alternatively, a simpler binding might be used but then the security operations would need to be implemented without the benefit of the secure binding capabilites provided as part of the secure WCF binding.  Any guidance is appreciated.
