WCF Express Interop Bindings Extension for Visual Studio 2010 is now avilable to further simplify the WS-* interop challenge.
"This new extension enables WCF developers to avoid much of the formerly needed guesswork to configure a WCF service to connect with the top Java platforms via the known WS-* specifications, by creating custom interoperable WCF bindings on demand, building on settings described in the WS-* interop white papers," explains Abu Obeida on AppFabric team blog.
"Simply select your platform of choice, the options of Reliable Messaging, Security, MTOM, and the extension generates a complete WCF service, configured with a dynamically generated binding that works right out of the with box with the Java platform of your choice," Obeida stated.
"This extension is the best interop solution for the novice and intermediate WCF developer. Advanced developers can further customize the pre-defined settings that we have tested with the leading Java platforms for their own use. What required hours and days before is now doable in mere minutes!"
The extension is provided as an open source project at wcf.codeplex.com amongst other projects by the WCF Team. Download the source code and the binary here.
