WSE Mega Link Interface

I was talking to Darren on messenger today - it seems my recent ramblings on WSE have not gone un-noticed by him, and he was wondering where to get started. I can thoroughly reccomend the two Hands On Labs you can download from the MSDN (Security and Messaging). Next you will probably want to check the WSE 2 samples which are installed if you choose the “developer” options when you install WSE 2. The samples are available in C# and VB.NET and have “setup” and “teardown” scripts to run to create IIS virtual directories etc for the samples. After you get through those check out some of these resources:
