We will cover them in much detail using plenty of diagrams to ensure you are not left with unanswered questions.Article 7: In-Depth TCP Header Analysis: Header Length.In fact one way of working is to define a custom message inspector that writes/reads the custom SOAP Header. Here is the code to define a custom header to handle a random key (as a Guid) injected in every request sent from the consumer to the service: class.Notice the On Write Header Contents override, which is invoked by WCF infrastructure to serialize the SOAP Header, and the Read Header static method that we will use later.The Transmission Control Protocol, or TCP as we will refer to it from now on, is one of the most important and well-known protocols in the world on networks today.Used in every type of network world-wide, it enables millions of data transmissions to reach their destination and works as a bridge, connecting hosts with one another and allowing them to use various programs in order to exchange data.
TCP was designed to be able to deliver all of the above, and so it was adopted promptly by the rest of the world. It will show you how TCP fits into the OSI Model, by using simple diagrams.
The service will be able to read the Key provided throught the custom SOAP header simply querying the Incoming Message Properties dictionary: Hello Paolo Pialorsi, Thanks for the excellent piece of code.
I have been trying for several days to make this work.
A few days ago a customer of mine asked me how to define a WCF behavior to add a custom SOAP Header to sent/received messages.
The solution is not so far from what I've shown in the previous "Writing a WCF Message Inspector" post.
