WCF 4.0 is shaping up to be quite an interesting release.
This morning, Jesus Rodriguez blogged about support for WS-Discovery in WCF 4.0, including a detailed basic “how-to” to get us started. What’s interesting is that this level of WS-Discovery support will allow for much more dynamicism in our WCF based systems.
For example, now we might use a Broker as a first endpoint that then provides a resolution mechanism for other services. Using this new mechanism not only can a client can use WS-Discovery to find all available Brokers, but the Brokers themselves can monitor the services available across a server farm and self-configure accordingly. Neato!
