WSE coverage

Discussion in 'MCSD' started by Chris Pettingill, Oct 31, 2003.

  1. Is much time spent on covering WSE on the MCSD exams? I've been reading
    about Indigo and Longhorn, and it sounds like WSE is going to be replaced by
    Indigo. The Indigo site recommends avoiding WSE to make it easier to move
    existing apps to Indigo, so I wouldn't want to have to spend a lot of time
    on WSE. It sounds like WSE implementation now is just an interim thing to
    deal with some security and communication issues before Indigo becomes
    available.

    I heard that in late 2004, Indigo will be superseded by something called
    Mayfly.

    Chris:

    From the studying I did on the XML Web Services and Server
    components test I don't even see WSE talked about in their
    self paced study guide and it definately wasn't covered on
    the exam. I ended up spending more time figuring out all
    of the COM+ and Remoting aspects as they really seemed to
    dedicate some space to those in the self-paced preparation
    from Microsoft. Beyond leveraging SOAP Headers for
    authentication and controlling serialization (for custom
    encryption) you won't get much past the basic web services
    infrastructure. Hope this helps, no need to try and lock
    down exactly what WS-Routing is doing quite yet! Where
    did you find some of that information on avoiding WSE due
    to the impending Indigo release, I'd love to catch up?

    It sounds like WSE implementation now is just an interim thing to
    As is the case with many technologies. Take Microsoft, often it is
    said that the release of a Microsoft product is just the beta version
    for the next release!

  5. From what I've been reading, it doesn't sound like Indigo will even be
    released by then (or only just released). Apparently Indigo is a key part
    of Longhorn (although there will be a version of Indigo available sooner for
    XP). Longhorn isn't due 'til 2005 or 2006 I think I read.

  6. Yeah, I think that's what they're saying about this... but they also seem to
    be saying that the changes from WSE-2 to Indigo will be significant enough
    that you should avoid using WSE if you want easy migration of your code to
    Indigo.

    There's tons of stuff being added daily it seems about Longhorn and all
    related technologies.

    There also a few newsgroups starting with
    "microsoft.public.windows.developer.winfx"

  8. .... or maybe Indigo will be WSE-2... It's all so much to absorb...
    Regardless, I guess the main point is that if you use the WSE available now
    you'll have a harder time migrating existing code to Indigo.

    Just use any of their software and this proves true.

    lol!
    Keep the design as simple as possible. I know that sound obvious, but
    if you are in a situation where the 'goal posts' keep moving, it's the
    only way to build in some sort of future proofing.
