Example text

Before two programs can exchange messages, a channel must be established between them. The base Indigo channel types implement simplex input, simplex 31 32 output, duplex, and request-reply messaging patterns. A client creates a channel to a service endpoint, specifying the type of channel desired and an address. If a service is listening at that same address, a channel can be established and messaging can take place. Once communication is completed, the channel can be torn down. Figure 2-9 is a sequence diagram showing the creation, use, and destruction of a request-reply channel.

Service Design To design a service properly, you must take into account its role in relation to other services. Some key questions to answer include the following: • Does your service have a well-defined role as part of a distributed solution? • What are the target audiences for your service? Who will be consuming it? • What dependencies does your service have? What other services will your service access? • What boundaries will be crossed to access your service, and what are the implications? • What contracts and schemas should your service implement?

Yes Yes Yes Yes No Yes Yes Yes Simplex, Request-Reply, Duplex Simplex, Duplex Simplex n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a Endpoints Endpoints describe where a service is, associating an address with a service contract and binding. A service must provide at least one endpoint in order to be accessible and can have multiple endpoints. TIP A useful mnemonic for remembering the elements of an endpoint is ABC: Address, Binding, and Contract. The simplest possible service has a single endpoint, a single service contract, and a single binding.
