        Windows Server AppFabric extends Windows Server to make managing WCF and WF services built on .NET Framework 4 easier. Windows Server AppFabric includes Windows PowerShell cmdlets that enable you to manage applications from the command line or via scripts. Windows Server AppFabric also integrates with Internet Information Services (IIS) providing management and monitoring tools within the IIS Management console.

        There are two tutorials, one using the Windows Server AppFabric interface, and the other using Windows PowerShell. Both tutorials demonstrate how you can use Windows Server AppFabric to manage services by walking you through a simple purchase order service. The appendix describes the steps for building the purchase order service.

        We recommend going through the Windows Server AppFabric interface tutorial first, because it provides the background information for both tutorials.
