Rusty Old Car needs SOAP

A Fresh Coat Of REST Paint On A SOAP Stack

In my experience, once a SOAP API gets into production and is working, nobody wants to touch it.  They can be very finicky beasts. Sometimes the most innocuous update can stop a client application in its  tracks.  Exposing a SOAP API to external customers just raises the risk level.  One approach I frequently see is […]

Message Handler

How to GET aHEAD with MessageHandlers!

It appears I need to go on vacation more often.  I seem to get more chance to experiment.  One of my first discussions about RACK was with Mike Kelly where he suggested a simple solution to implementing HEAD across an API.  Simply use a RACK application to convert a HEAD request to a GET and then when […]

WCF HTTP – work in progress

HTTP Secure

Security and Http

I did some experimentation today with authentication over http. Using the System.Net.WebClient class I made requests against both a HttpListener based server and WCF service contract using webHttpBinding.
