<p>image My Data Points column in the August 2009 issue of MSDN Magazine is now online,titled Data Performance and Fault Strategies in Silverlight 3</a>. In this issue I demonstrate how binary encoding works, the effect it has on an application’s performance, and how it behaves by demonstrating it in action with Silverlight 3. I also walk through several techniques that can be used to pass exception information using undeclared and declared faults from Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Web services to Silverlight. </p> <p>I hope you enjoy it!</p> <p> </p> <p>image</p>
