We're looking at making some improvements to our configuration system in the next release of WCF.
I'm very interested in hearing peoples impressions of today's configuration experience with WCF. What works well? What irritates you? What's easy and what's hard? If you could change one thing (or five) about WCF configuration and the SvcConfigEditor.exe, what would it be? What's really important to you that we absolutely should not change?
I'm particularly interested in real-world feedback on how you'd grade the current solution on the following:
- Out-of-box developer experience
- Managing change across development lifecycle (dev/test/production)
- Separating out "stuff the IT Pro twiddles" from "stuff the service developer twiddles"
But any and all feedback you have in this area would be valuable, so don't be shy. Lots of folks from the product team will be watching the comments on this post as well as it's link cloud. If you prefer email, send me mail at smaine @ microsoft . com and I'll make sure it gets to the right people.
