WS-ContractFirst (WSCF)

Yo yo yo. I'm 90% done with one of my long-passed dateline project, and NOW I'm going to rest. But before that, I'd like to share with you guys WebServices - Contract First.

A few weeks ago, my friend Softwaremaker gave a presentation to the SgDotNet User Group. And he did a wonderful presentation about WebServices - Contract First. Here's his blog about it.

Introducing WS-ContractFirst (WSCF) to Singapore

And he did mention about Christian Weyer's WS-ContractFirst (WSCF) tool. Please do check it out. Contract First with webservices is a good way to go, though not the best, but I assure you SWM has convinced me it's the best way to go at the moment.

There is a March 2005 Indigo CTP just released on MSDN Subscribers. Here are a few good articles on Indigo.

Microsoft "Indigo" The Unified Programming Model for Building Service-Oriented Applications

Introducing Indigo: An Early Look

Well, that's all folks! It's dinner time, and after that, I have to do the rest of this. I have another 5 more projects which datelines are way long overdued. Sigh.

Hopefully till tomorrow, I'll be blogging again.

It is not the best because of the primitive tooling out there. It should get better.

Indigo is already taking a major step in allowing this to happen.

Thanks a lot for the referral, Justin :)

Appreciate it :)

Tried the new Indigo CTP? I plan to test it out this weekend. How's it like?

I have been on the older Indigo bits (that wasnt available to the public) for the past few months ;)

I have also tried the newer March CTP bits.

So far, it has been relatively stable.
