    Compressing web service calls in Indigo (WCF)

    Hi,

    I would like to compress the messages sent over a WSHttpBinding to get a
    better usage of low bandwidth. I have looked at the sample in the Windows
    SDK, but can't figure it out. Does this custom binding have the same security
    and reliable session capabillities as the WSHttpBinding?

    I'm primarily interested in compressing the response from the server and was
    thinking about utilizing the standard compression module for IIS 6.0. But
    this requires that the request has the "Accept-encoding: gzip" in the HTTP
    header and of course that Indigo (WCF) can decompress the response
    automatically, which doesn't seems to be standard functionality today.

    Is there any way to get this kind of functionality with Indigo?
    Are there any plans to make this decompression functionality standard in
    Indigo?
    (It is implemented in .NET 2.0 Web Services, so why isn't this functionality
    also supported by Indigo?)

    Is it possible to extend the WSHttpBinding to get the described
    functionality and preserve the security and reliable session capabilities?
    How can this custom binding be implemented?


    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I'm looking after exactly the same functionality that utilizes the standard
    gzip compression by using the "Accept-encoding" header.
    Is there any plans for including this functionality i future releases of WCF?
