Resource Page Description
This example uses Microsoft Codename "Dallas", a service based on SQL Azure, to show how to integrate a web service with Microsoft AppFabric Access Control (AC), a part of the Azure Services Platform. It includes a WPF based Dallas browser, an AC management library, and a set of AC aware Dallas service proxy classes. Prerequisites include Visual Studio 2008 SP1, .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation and WPF Toolkit June 2009 Release.

Welcome to Fabrikam Jets!

This example shows how AppFabric Access Control (AC) can be used to provide identity federation, trust delegation, service authorization and integration with Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), to control access to services based on Windows Azure

In the example, a fictitious company named Fabrikam Jets uses the Dallas Portal, AC and ADFS, to grant employees of another fictitous company, named Contoso Marketing, access to services provided by
Microsoft Codename "Dallas" at Fabrikam's expense, using Windows authentication for the Contoso employees, without exposing Fabrikam's Dallas account keys, which are secrets. It also shows how Fabrikam can revoke the privilege later.

**Delete the following note before publishing **

This resource page is currently in setup mode and only available to coordinators and developers. Once you have finished setting up your resource page you can publish it to make it available to all MSDN Code Gallery visitors.

To get your Resource Page ready to publish, you should do the following:
  1. Make any changes to the details of your resource page
    1. Here you can enable or disable functions of your resource page. You might want to turn on the Issue Tracker to allow users to provide feedback on your resource, or if you have a resource that does not involve a code sample, you may want to turn off the Releases tab.
    2. Make sure your resource page description is detailed enough to let people search for your resource.
  2. Add your code sample or other resources to the resource page
    1. If you’re uploading code, go to the Releases tab and create a new release to house your code. Creating a release allows you to have the license properly displayed when people download your code, as well as provides a download count.
    2. Edit your Wiki page to attach any resources you may have that are not source code.
  3. If you want to let someone see your resource page before it is published, go to the People tab and add them to your resource page
    1. This will let you add other team members who may be contributing to your resource, or just show it off and get feedback from someone you trust.
  4. Tag your resource page with descriptive tags to make it easier for people to find your resources when browsing the gallery.
  5. Publish your resource page so it becomes visible to everyone!

Additional information on starting a new resource page is available here: Resource Page Startup Guide.
