Microsoft released the new Software Factory refresh for VS 2008

Posted in General I.T by Ratnakar Garikipati on April 4, 2008

The Web Service Software Factory: Modelling Edition (also known as the Service Factory) is an integrated collection of resources designed to help developers quickly and consistently build Web services that adhere to well-known architecture and design patterns.

A refresh for VS 2008 was released a few days ago to address the following feedback that the team had received:
– The tool should remember the information provided so it does not have to be provided each time the source code is generated.
– The next version should focus less on the data access and business logic tiers and more on the service interface.
– Help those who want to modify the Service Factory source code; doing this is not a straightforward process.
– Wizards are okay some of the time, but a visualization of the services is a better experience.
– Services should be designed in a technology-independent manner.
