Rich Turner on Binary XML in WCF

Rich Tuner, a product manager in Microsoft's Web Services Strategy team, writes:

"In our own work, we see WCF's text-XML encoder significantly outperform our current ASMX/WSE text-XML encoder engine. We also see the WCF BinaryXML serializer delivering hige performance and throughput improvements vs. serializing raw text-XML. Right now, the WCF BinaryXML format is proprietary because of the absence of a standard BinaryXML format. However, once the world agrees on one (or maybe more) BinaryXML formats, you can be sure that we or someone else will ship a compliant encoder for WCF.

Roll on, that day!"

Well, i think that day is here and now. Fast Infoset is a standard binary encoding of the XML Information Set that is jointly standardized in ITU-T and ISO.

Maybe someone will implement Fast Infoset for WCF? Then JWSDP 1.6 and JAX-WS 2.0 clients/services could interoperate with WCF clients/services using a standard binary encoding of the XML information set.

As a start one could look at the open source Java-based implementation here.
