I recorded my basic “Securing a web service with WSE 3” demo using Camtasia. There are two versions of this.
- In the 30 minute version (25MB), I spend a lot of time looking at config and policy files as well as tracing and debugging while implementing the security.
- The shorter 15 minute version (12MB) does not take any stops along the way although we do inspect the trace file at the very end just to prove that the message was secured.
- WCF Client to WSE3 Service Demo (20MB, 20 minutes) see notes below
I don’t get to take this much time to explain things during a conference, so I’m happy to be able to do the demo in my own time frame. I think I will do this for some of my other favorite presentations.
It’s different to do a presentation with no audience, in the quiet of my office. I did have to edit out the barking dog at one point. It’s not nearly as fun and I can tell that I sound very different than when presenting to a room full of developers. Maybe I should drink a few cups of coffee next time I record demos. Also, without the conference clock ticking away, I am not racing through the demo which is a nice change. Calm cool and collected.
Next I will record the demo of my WCF client calling into a plain ASMX web service built in .NET 2.0 with Visual Studio 2005 and then calling into a web service that has been secured with WSE 3.0. When that is online, I come back to this post and link to that as well.
Update 4/18: The WCF demo is online. It is 20 minutes long and about 20 MB. There are two important things to know about this demo. 1) It is part of a bigger presentation about writing web services today that can communicate with WCF tomorrow, but the demo doesn’t go over those rules. You can see basic guidance in this article that I wrote, but becuae the guidance was in flux when I published the article, please do keep an ey on he MSDN WSE Dev Center for an upcoming article by William Tay and PAG guidance. 2) This is not focused on how to write the WCF client. Although I show a little about how I did it, the point of the demo is just to prove that it works. Again, watch for William Tay’s article!
