SharePoint Web Parts that uses Ajax, jQuery, and the Azure AppFabric Service Bus make it easy to interact with on-premises WCF services hosted inside your protected intranet from SharePoint. 'On-Premises' means any internal WCF service which runs within the confines of a corporate intranet, or otherwise within the bounds of a server which is protected by firewalls / network address translation (NAT) and which has no public IP or direct exposure to the internet.
In this lab, you will start by creating a simple WCF service hosted in a console application. Then you will create a WCF 'forwarder' service hosted in Windows Azure which will forward calls to the console WCF service via the Azure AppFabric Service Bus. Finally, you will create a SharePoint Web Part which consumes the on-premise console WCF service via routing a call through the forwarder service.
