In this short video, CSD MVP Aaron Skonnard from PluralSight guides the viewer through different techniques for processing messages using the new HttpClient class that ships with the new WCF REST Starter Kit Preview 2.

In this screencast, Aaron builds on the simple Twitter command shell application started in the previous HttpClient screencast and used through this series. To process the messages (both XML and JSON), Aaron layers a data contract over the incoming message, to allow the .NET developer to work with the content in a strong typed, dot-notation fashion. After demonstrating how to hand-craft the .NET objects, Aaron demonstrates how to use the new 'Paste XML as Serializable Type' command to automatically generate the .NET classes from a sample Twitter XML response.

For additional information on the WCF REST Starter Kit, please check out the REST in WCF Dev Center on MSDN and the .NET Endpoint team blog.
