Introduction

This chapter completes the series covering the various ways of extending the Windows Communication Foundation. There are two primary ways of extending the technology to accommodate scenarios for which it does not explicitly provide: by adding custom behaviors and by adding custom bindings. Custom behaviors control the Windows Communication Foundation’s internal communication functions, such as the function of serializing outbound data into messages. Custom bindings supplement the Windows Communication Foundation’s external communication capabilities by providing channels that implement additional protocols for exchanging messages with external parties. Chapter 14, “Custom Channels,” introduced the subject of extending the Windows Communication Foundation through the addition of custom binding elements. This chapter goes on to cover the construction of a special category of custom binding element—custom binding elements that provide channels to implement protocols for transporting data.
