Using advanced filters for custom routing logic in the Routing Service

In my last post I pointed to a screencast I had recorded that showed how to create a custom message filter to plug your own logic into the WCF 4.0 Routing Service. However, the simple custom filter is only the start – you can actually take control of part of the routing table which allows you to make global decisions about which filters match a particular request. On that basis I have created another screencast that shows how to build one of these more complex custom filters. in this case I use the example of a round robin load balancer where you can use a file on the file system to indicate whether a specific endpoint should be considered part of the load balancing algorithm

You can find this last in the series of screencasts on the routing service, along with all the others here, on the Rock Solid Knowledge site

Using Custom Message Filters with the Routing Service

I’ve just uploaded a new screencast on the the Rock Solid Knowledge site. This one shows you how to plug your own routing logic into the new Routing Service that is part of WCF 4.0. It uses a custom message filter that can be used to supplement the existing set of filters such as matching on XPath and Action.

You can find the screencast (along with the previous ones in the series) here
