Creating OData Entries in WCF Data Services

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.

Navigating OData and WCF Data Services

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.

WCF Data Services Providers

  • Today's agile organizations pose operations teams with a tremendous challenge: to deploy new releases to production immediately after development and testing is completed. To ensure that applications are deployed successfully, an automatic and transparent process is required. We refer to this process as Zero Touch Deployment™. This white paper reviews two approaches to Zero Touch Deployment--a script-based solution and a release automation platform. The article discusses how each can solve the key …
