Simon Fell > Its just code
I also spotted Ingo Rammer's weblog today as well. This guy seems to know an insane amount about the remoting architecture in .NET, his book is definitely on my to buy list.
Keith says, I think DIME is technically better than MIME for attaching files to SOAP messages. My favorite feature? Chunking :-) DIME appears to suit SOAP attachments better than MIME, I've written MIME parsing and generating code more times than i care to think about, and everytime i always try to find a decent library to do, rather than write it from scratch, but have been foiled at every attempt, and always end up doing it all myself. Generating correct boundaries is always a pain, most code i've seen just generates some random string and blindly hopes that's not in the payload. I prefer to check, but that comes with the cost of having to look for a string a bytes in the entire payload, which for an email message that's a few K is not a problem, but for a 100Mb file attached to a SOAP message it is.
The latest offerings from The Chemical Brothers currently spinning, I like it, they certainly don't appear to be loosing their touch, but topping Exit Planet Dust will take some doing.
Editors' Newswire for 2 February, 2002. Newswire stories, including: Is the WSDL W3C XML Schema invalid?. [xmlhack] There does seem to be a few problems with the supplied schema, IIRC it was enough to drive Don to write a fixed version.
The custom serializer sample is up !
I'm working on a new sample for PocketSOAP, that show's how to write custom serializers that plug-in the PocketSOAP serialization framework. And in an attempt to kill two birds with one stone, its based on the Apache map serialization, so i can test that out as well.
Mark got his Radio/.NET interop going, always good news.
