(note: for those of you who need this clarification – eg the anonymous commentor who gave me the big lecture 🙂 – the title and the last sentences of this post are intended to be sarcastic. Sheesh.)
In my talk on Preparing WSE3 Web Services for WCF at DevConnections, I was asked the dreaded question: do these work on the compact framework?
Nobody likes to get this question, because the answer is just way too embarrassing.
The answer is “No”.
The last version of the WCF story that I heard was that R1 will not have it, but R2 will. The WCF footprint is small which will help enormously. But R2.
To top it off, though I don’t have a PPC and didn’t see this myself, I am astonished to learn through Softwaremaker, yet another place where security has been set aside: Passport logins. On the web, we get a login and a masked password, along with options to remember the login, password or both. Not only are those options gone with the PPC interface, but the password is not masked! Hello?
I suppose that it is another indication that people who use PPCs or write applications for them, are just not doing anything important enough to require security. I suppose.
