Top of the Pops: WCF blog rundown for 2007

Yuval Shavit Profile: YuvalShavit

It is list time. WCF blogger extraordinaire Nick Allen put together his yearly review of his most popular posts.  Among the most-read Allen articles written in the year just past are tips on Preventing Anonymous Access, Client IP Address, Using XML Serialization with WCF and MSMQ Poison Messages.

What is a Poison Message? It is a permanent processing error, possibly caused by a malformed message that can get locked into a ”futile cycle of retrieving the message and unsuccessfully processing it.” In one of his top posts, Allen shows you how to take the Poison Message out of the queue and apply a useful programming strategy that avoids futile cycles.

Allen notes that his article on client IP addresses elicited important feedback that directly contributed to that feature being added in Orcas.  Both posts and feedback comments are valuable on this Indigo blog.
