To fully exploit Open Data Protocol (OData) with WCF Data Services there are classes and interfaces a .NET app must instantiate or implement. Using a sample WCF Data Services application, this article explains how to implement data creation on an OData Endpoint.
Understanding OData conventions are important to building an OData client and testing an OData Endpoint. Of all the OData conventions the most important convention a WCF Data Services developer must understand are the OData URI conventions. This article explains how OData URI conventions map to code living inside of WCF Data Services.
OData's simplicity and common underlying Web standards have made it a popular Data protocol in the Microsoft stack. WCF Data Services includes several Providers that surface OData from .NET classes.
Often blocking and checking is combined with some sort of timeout. SpinUntil, a static method on the SpinWait structure, combines blocking, waiting, and timeouts. New in the .NET Framework 4.0, SpinUntil simplifies many different scenarios involving the Task Parallel Library (TPL). Jeffery Juday shares some common recipes employing SpinUntil alongside TPL.
A substantial number of Task Parallel Library (TPL) Concurrent collections implement IProducerConsumerCollection. Jeffrey Juday explains the scenarios and mechanisms around implementing IProducerConsumerCollections.
