Using REST, we get the following advantages:
- Independent Evolution
- and many more...
- GET:- means requesting a specific representation of a resource.
- PUT:- means creating or updating a resource with a provided representation.
- DELETE:- simply defines, deleting the specific resource.
- POST:- defines submitting data to be processed by the identified resource.
- HEAD:- is similar to GET but only retrieve header not the body.
- OPTIONS:- it returns the method supported by the identified resource.
So far in this guide, we talked a lot about REST and related concepts. Lets move further to practically implementing all these concepts. We will start this WCF tutorial from beginner level and take to professional level.
Chapter 1:- Creating your first WCF RESTful service
In this chapter, we will create a basic WCF REST service. Following a step by step approach in creating RESTful service with complete code sample, we will discuss service and behavior configuration and talk about webHttpBinding also. Finally, running the service and getting results in our browser window.
Chapter 2:- Consuming WCF RESTful service using jQuery
Now, we have a REST service available. Here in this chapter, focus remains on consuming already created RESTful service using jQuery. As jQuery simplifies AJAX call for a REST-based service, complete jQuery code provided and finally results are rendered in HTML.
Chapter 3:- Performing CRUD operations using WCF RESTful service - Part 1
In chapter 3, we have broaden our scope and provided all CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete) operations for our service for a specific domain model.
Chapter 4:- Performing CRUD operations using WCF RESTful service - Part 2
This chapter focuses on consuming WCF REST service for all CRUD operations developed in earlier chapter using jQuery. Untill here, reader will have understanding of core concepts and also able to create a small RESTful service application by himself.
Chapter 5:- Posting JSON data to WCF RESTful service using jQuery
So far, we discussed and implemented different HTTP methods like GET, PUT, DELETE. In this part of guide, we discussed on using POST HTTP method for sending data to a HTTP service in JSON format.
Chapter 6:- Automatic Format Selection in WCF RESTful service
WebHttpBehavior class introduces AutomaticFormatSelectionEnabled property in .NET framework version 4.0. This chapter focuses on how this new feature of Automatic Format Selection works for a service operation.
Chapter 7:- Exception Handling in WCF RESTful service
Finally, in this chapter we discussed about handling exceptions for a WCF RESTful service.
This WCF tutorial guide provide thorough understanding with complete code for learning HTTP service and covers all major areas for web developers working with RESTful services in WCF.
