Tips on matching you Bindings

Have you ever tried to get CustomBindings equivalent to a StandardBinding or vice versa. Well recently I was asked why a customBinding  like

<customBinding>
  <
binding name=Custom
>
    <
textMessageEncoding
/>
      <
security authenticationMode=UserNameOverTransport
>
         <
secureConversationBootstrap
/>
      </
security
>
    <
httpsTransport
/>
  </
binding
>
</
customBinding>

was not similar to a wsHttpBinding like the following

<wsHttpBinding>
  <
binding name=WS
>
   
<security mode=TransportWithMessageCredential
/>
  </
binding
>
</
wsHttpBinding>

They do look similar but there are subtle aspects which which probably make them really different. I am not going to call out every difference here and will leave it to you to spot them. The major point here is that this choice can either make or break your app primarily since I work on perf here and choosing the second would be quite a blow to perf if you really don’t want the bells and whistles that wsHttpBinding provides, sometimes 4 to 5 times.

The Pub World

This is one place which you will not hear about. Its BANG on Residency Road in the heart of Bangalore. Surprisingly this reference came from Dad so we thought we might as well check it out as we were walking towards Brigade Road for our usual shopping sessions.

The chilly lamb was a killer and the place had a really unique maze like setup. Not cheap but neither is it expensive and just about sits right in between and surely worth the money you spend. Would definitely recommend it.

Coco

Out of the four pups that Hazel had, mom and dad decided to keep this one. She was the youngest and the weakest one. But it wasn’t for long. She started standing up and drinking out of a plate sooner than any of the other pups. We’ve also decided to keep another one within the family, refered to currently as Tensing, due to his cage climbing skills.
