WCF for devices

Tue, October 31, 2006, 06:06 AM under MobileAndEmbedded
When we talk about the NetFx3 technologies, there are always one or two attendees (not the same ones each time!) that ask if any of the technologies are applicable to mobile devices. There are no plans for WF and no immediate plans for WPF (often confused with WPF/e which is actually quite a different technology with an unfortunate name IMO).

However, the WCF story is good with Orcas and it is now public information! Read all about the WCF support on Roman's blog post. Below some choice quotes:
"... The WCF programming model support will be limited to channel layer messaging (no service model support on the device) [...]
[...] We'll expose all necessary extensibility points so people could plug in their own transport and layered channels, while maintaining a unified programming model. [...] The channels we plan to deliver out of the box are Http and... yes, e-mail (for WCF on desktop and device)."
