This evening I took the time to implement a new step on the new version of Tech Head Brothers authoring tool.
Now I am able to write an article in Word 2007 and post it using Web Services.
I started to migrate the Tech Head Brothers authoring tool and portal from Web Service Enhancement 3 (WSE 3) to Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). This is a next step in the integration of .NET Framework 3 in Tech Head Brothers portal.
Till today I was using WSE 3 from the Word VSTO solution to securely publish content to the portal directly out of Word 2003/2007.
What are the options when you need to integrate Windows legacy code in a heterogeneous Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)?
The proposed problem was to expose a set of Windows C++ DLLs to a global SOA platform written in Java. Those DLLs would be then exposed as backend computation services.
Today I am working on the security of my publishing web services for the next release of Tech Head Brothers Portal. The goal is to be able to post content on the portal using THBAuhtoring (you might get the source from Codeplex) a Word 2003 solution I developed. I wanted to build my proxy class like so:
Today is a big day with a really cool milestone for
First I am able to publish/update content on the site with my new publishing
tool; a word template using vsto 2005 and secured web services. This piece of
code let me publish content with pictures, colorized source code, zip files for
sample applictions and this directly out of Word 2003. Really cool!!!
End of April, I was invited by Microsoft France (Thanks to Pierre and Mitsu) to speak about the solution,
based on Word 2003, I developed to publish content on my web site Tech Head Brothers. The day was
called “Rencontres Solutions Métiers sur Office” and was held in Strasbourg,
France. Tech Head Brothers was
even a partner for that event.
This evening I attended a webcast about web service
interopearability. It was done by Michele
Leroux Bustamante of IDesign. The
subject was .NET and Bea Weblogic interop and was really interesting. I would
like to see now the way to do the same development using Eclipse and deploying
the Web service in Weblogic. One of the link to remember about this webcast is:

I am currently packing all my stuff to attend the Tech Ed 2003 in Barcelona.
Hope to meet you there.
Now I got a real place where I can post! Christophe contact me if you wanna know where it is ;-)
So today I attended an interesting presentation “WEB290: Web service discovery: Are we meant for each other?”. Thats was not really anything new for me cause I am in charge of evaluating and implementing UDDI solution for the company I work for. But a really good presentation. It will really simplify the life of our infrastructure team.
I am currently working on a new version of my site: Tech Head Brothers. This new version will use the .NET
Framework 1.1. I am facing some difficulties because I had hardcoded some stuff
in the code before. I know thats BAD, really BAD. But sometimes when you don’t
have that much time you do ugly things.
After some work I ported my portal to version 1.1 of the .NET Framework. The
only change related to the update of the frameework was due to XSLT and the
usage of a deprecated method. Cool.
