Service Virtualization: MSE on Channel9

Service virtualization can be an important architectual mechanism for your service-oriented solutions, and the Managed Services Engine is a free WCF-based tool available at CodePlex.

There are two videos at Channel9 about MSE that I recommend watching to learn about the capabilities of MSE:
  • Code to live: service virtualization, versioning, etc
  • Talking about MSE: virtual services and endpoints, protocol adaption, policy enforcement, etc
A topic related to service virtualization is consumer-driven contracts, and you can do that with MSE, but the WCF LOB Adapter Kit might be an even better tool for that.
