Exposing the Data in the Cloud


The developers at Tailspin decided to use the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Representational State Transfer (REST) programming model to expose the data in the Tailspin Surveys service. Tailspin also considered using WCF Data Services, but when Tailspin began developing the mobile client application, the WCF Data Services support for Windows Azure table storage was still a pre-release version.

Tailspin is using the WCF REST programming model to exchange data between the mobile client and the cloud-based service.
