WCF and WS-* Reliability Standards

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

I was wondering if anyone could give me a definitive answer and clear up some confusion about the exact WS-* standards implemented in WCF with respect to reliability.

My understanding is this:

The WS-ReliableMessaging standard (the Microsoft-supported standard) is implemented and is configured using a binding configuration with reliableSession enabled.

I am confused as to whether there is any support at all for the WS-Reliability standard. I have read that this is supported through MSMQ, but I'm not sure about this.

Also I understand there is no real support in ASP.NET Web Services or WSE for WS-Reliability, although WS-ReliableMessaging is supported but you pretty much have to implement it yourself (following sample code).

Can someone clarify these matters for me?

Apologies if this has been addressed before, but I have searched and searched again and can't seem to come up with definitive answers.


Many thanks,

High Availability: Keep Your Code Running with the Reliability Features of the .NET Framework


Reliability requires the capacity to execute a sequence of operations in a deterministic way, even under exceptional conditions. This allows you to ensure that resources are not leaked and that you can maintain state consistency without relying on application domain unloading (or worse, process restarts) to fix any corrupted state. Unfortunately, in the.NET Framework, not all exceptions are deterministic and synchronous, which makes it difficult to write code that is always deterministic in its ability to execute a predetermined sequence of operations. In this article Stephen Toub will show you why, and explore features of the .NET Framework 2.0 that help you to mitigate these situations and write more reliable code.

IIS 6.0: New Features Improve Your Web Server's Performance, Reliability, and Scalability


As the Web evolves, so does the role that Internet servers play. The Internet has seen the growth of e-commerce, B2B business, collaboration, streaming and other new media, and these new applications require new features to meet increasingly complex needs. Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) has many of the features today's mature Web sites need. This article outlines the features in the upcoming version 6.0 and discusses how they promote better scalability, reliability, and performance. Features such as Remote administration, caching, and metabase improvements, as well as custom isolation and security enhancements, make IIS 6.0 the Web server of the future.

Winsock 2: QoS API Fine-Tunes Networked App Throughput and Reliability


The Generic Quality of Service (GQoS) API is a subset of the Winsock 2 API that allows a Winsock application to inform the network of its traffic requirements, enabling entitled applications to receive preferential treatment for their traffic. Existing Winsock applications can be GQoS-enabled by adding or modifying Winsock calls at appropriate places. An application's sending and receiving traffic needs can also be defined by specifying parameters within the QualityOfService (QOS) structure. This article discusses how traffic information is conveyed throughout the network, what kind of QOS structure should be used in your app, and how to set up network configurations for testing GQoS applications.

Active Server Pages+: ASP+ Improves Web App Deployment, Scalability, Security, and Reliability


ASP has been rebuilt from the ground up. The result? Active Server Pages+. ASP+, with a host of new features, provides for easier to write, cleaner code that's simple to reuse and share. ASP+ boosts performance and scalability by offering access to complied languages; development is more intuitive thanks to Web Forms; and an object-oriented foundation facilitates reuse. Other important features include page events, Web Controls, and caching. Server Controls and improvements in data binding are also new with ASP+. Libraries for use with ASP+, and the Microsoft .NET Framework which allows custom business functions to be exposed over the Web, provide more new development opportunities.

Semantic standards support in SQL Server


Will SQL server support semantic standards such as RDF, OWL, SPARQL similarly to Oracle 11g?  Thank you.

"Oracle Database 11g Semantic Technologies is an open, standards-based, scalable, secure, reliable and performant RDF management platform. Based on a graph data model, RDF data (triples) are persisted, indexed and queried, like other object-relational data types.

  • Stores rich, real-world relationships in the data beyond columns, table joins and Boolean to obtain more semantically complete query results.
  • Enables machine-driven discovery of new relationships using the native Oracle Database inference engine, ontologies, and RDFS /SKOS/OWL semantics and user defined rules. Inferred data is persisted in the database for faster querying.
  • Queries relationship patterns using either direct SPARQL access to Oracle Database 11g via Jena, Sesame or Joseki, or SQL with SPARQL-like clauses.
  • Supports W3C standards for the representation, vocabulary, inferencing and querying of relationships, including RDF, SKOS, RDFS, OWL, and SPARQL.
  • Supports key open source technologies, including Jena, Joseki, ARQ, Sesame, Pellet, D2RQ, Jetty, Cytoscape, GATE, and Protégé.
  • Secures RDF data at the graph and/or the triple level with declarative constraints on RDF classes and properties or EAL4+ multi-level sec

Accordion Control failing XHTML standards


Hi there,

OK, first things are that I am using .NET 4.0 with Telerik Rad Controls version Ajax Q2 2010 Net 4 and the .NET 4 version of the AJAX Control Toolkit.

The website I am working on uses the Telerik Rad Controls quite extensivley but I really wanted to use the Accordion control from the ajax control toolkit as I believe this is better than the alternative from the Telerik product range.  After messing about trying to get the two to work together I finally achieved this and functionally we are working OK.  However..........  I get the following error when trying to validate the page for valid XHTML

  1. Error Line 173, Column 17: ID "ctl08" already defined
    	</div><div id="ctl08" style="display:block;">


    An "id" is a unique identifier. Each time this attribute is used in a document it must have a different value. If you are using this attribute as a hook for style sheets it may be

Connection stability and WCF framework reliability!!!


Hello to everybody,


for a few months I'm developing an important application for my company based upon .NET platform which uses intensively the WCF framework. In particular, about the latter one, I'm experiencing a lot of frustrating problems which I'll show briefly in the next sentences...

In short, a subset of this application has made of a self hosted service and a multi instance client. They communicate each other with a reliable duplex tcp connection set up as follow:


		name          = "TcpBindingConfiguration"
		closeTimeout      = "00:00:30"
	    openTimeout      = "00:02:0

SQL SERVER - Guidelines and Coding Standards Complete

Coding standards and guidelines are very important for any developer on the path of successful career. A coding standard is a set of guidelines, rules and regulations on how to write code. Coding standards should be flexible enough or should take care of the situation where they should not prevent best practices for coding. They are basically the guidelines that one should follow for better understanding.

The concept behind implementing coding standards and guidelines, is that the consistency and uniformity in programming so that if multiple people are working on the same code, it becomes easier to communicate, share with or understand each other's work.

Recommended standards for Custom Server Control Creation in ASP.NET 4.0


Like a lot of developers, I have been using ASP.NET for quite a few years now and am quite comfortable with the nuances of creating web form apps. Over the last few months I have been working on creating a custom server control library that uses ASP.NET, Javascript, AJAX, JQuery as well as embedded resources smoothly. While I have them working nicely and seemlessly together on my demo pages, I would like to find a site/article/book with the latest suggested methods/standards for creating custom server controls using various technologies to verify I am doing them the right way.

Now if the fact is it hasn't changed at all since ASP.NET 2.0 and all the books/articles since 2007 are just as relevent that is great. It just seems that some things such as managing view state and when to use client script such as JQuery and AJAX versus relying on Update Panels have been evolving. Fortunately the controls I am creating don't have too much state issues, so I am having fun creating interfaces that are efficient (well reponsive anyways) with JQuery and not using the AJAX Toolkit, which I keep finding issues with.

While not interested in debating the tools I am using (you don't dare mention using ASP.NET on a Javascript/JQuery chatroom) I would welcome anyone who could point me to a definative location for what is the latest recommendations for
