Answers to frequently asked questions:
Q1: The plug-fest covers many areas, what is the schedule for testing different areas?
We will be flexible and will be ready to test with you any area listed on any day throughout the event. However there is a natural flow that majority of the folks will probably follow:
Policy and MEX will be covered as part of RM, WS-Security, TX scenarios and can be skipped if you don’t support Policy. Tests will include testing your clients with Indigo endpoints and testing Indigo clients with your endpoints based on scenarios / WSDLs provided.
Q2: My stack does not support Policy – will I be able to test other areas?
A: Absolutely – this is an A-la-carte event – there is no min-bar on how many scenarios you need to test. (well probably SOAP1.1 or SOAP1.2 support is required). You are free to select what areas you would like to do at the workshop and we will have engineers on the Indigo side to help. If you don’t support Security Policy – you will just configure your service and client according to what the scenario spells out.
Q3: Do we intend to publish results?
A: Yes, with some caveats. Here's the principles we are using:
Q4: We all know how N:N plug-fests are ran, is this 1:N? Can we test with others?
A: Microsoft's goal of the plug-fest is to provide opportunity for product-level interop testing with WCF on a wide range of areas and leverage efficiency of the face-to-face. We will provide everything in our capacity to help attendants get to interoperability with WCF. Attendees are also welcome to use this opportunity for testing with other companies.
Q5: Will network connectivity be wired or wireless?
