Description

So you have this old legacy application on your screen, it needs some fixes and new features, but unfortunately, these have to be implemented with a WCF Service? 

Don't panic! I’m here to help.

WCF Services are still quite often used in bigger corporations and also small teams because they might use older software that was built with these kinds of services.

Now people with deep knowledge of WCF-Services are rare. And that’s your chance!

By the end of this “REST WCF Service for Web Applications” course, you will be able to build WCF Services from the ground up and also change existing implementations and maintain these like a pro. 


Let’s have a look at what you are going to learn in this course:


Ajax-enabled restful WCF Service with Visual Studio

Within the first 10 minutes of this course, you will already learn how to build a new restful WCF Service from the ground up. After that, we will dive deeper into the code and implement several features. For that matter, this course provides a small prepared web application - a superhero database - where all the HTML & CSS parts are already covered.

You can totally focus on implementing the WCF Service in C# in Visual Studio and call your web service from the browser with JavaScript.


The web.config

After we created a completely new WCF Service, we will go over every important file in the Visual Solution and in particular cover the Web.config. All attributes in this configurations file will be explained.


CRUD operations with custom classes and lists

CRUD stands for Create, Read, Update and Delete. And this is exactly what you are going to do in this course. But you will not only use basic data types like strings and integers to implement these operations. You will use custom classes (superheroes in essence) and lists of these classes to create new heroes, update them and so on.


Common HTTP methods

To match these operations, you will make use of the four most common HTTP request methods, GET, POST, PUT and DELETE. Every HTTP method is used for a certain CRUD operation and you will learn which one you should use and why.


More than CRUD: Filtering, custom searches, sorting

A real-life WCF Service usually has to do more than just CRUD. That's we will dive even deeper and implement some custom requests like searching or sorting.


Debugging

Most likely every web service will have some errors. To find and fix these errors, it's highly recommended to debug your code. We will do exactly that. But you will not only learn how to debug your C# code but also how to debug your JavaScript code with Visual Studio as well.


Sending StatusCodes

Let's assume you're looking for a particular object but your WCF Service can't find it. Wouldn't it be great to send this information back to the requesting client, i.e. sending back a "404 Not Found"? You learn how to do exactly that.
