Where is Juval Lowy's ServiceModelEx library for WCF?

WCF is Microsoft's replacement for .Net Remoting and Web services. It's critical to understand if you are a .NET component developer.

The best reference for WCF appears to be (by word of mouth, blogs and Amazon) Juval Lowy's "Programming WCF Services," published by O'Reilly.

This book is advertised in several places around the net as "coming with Juval Lowy's ServiceModelEx library," which is supposed to be this awesome WCF framework that extends and simplifies WCF development. In the book itself Lowy talks about this framework a lot.

However, I can not figure out where to download said library. If you look at his website's download page there's tons of stuff but no ServiceModelEx.

Does he intend for his readers to re-code all of it by hand going by code samples in his book?

Anyone with any experience on this?

Yeah, this is a niche question, but I think it's an important topic and it's certainly programming related.


The latest version is maintained on IDesign's site here:


Older version are available on the O'Reilly site.

Programming WCF Services 3rd Edition (PWSTE) Samples: http://examples.oreilly.com/9780596805494/

Programming WCF Services 2nd Edition (PWSSE) Samples: http://examples.oreilly.com/9780596521301/

I found this via:


and clicking on "Examples"

Download the zip file and it has all the code for ServiceModelEx. I hope this helps.

you can find it here:


Just search for "ServiceModelEx" in your browser to jump to the right link ;)

In the PWSTE - Sources there are four subfolders:

  1. ServiceModelEx
  2. ServiceModelEx (.NET 3.5)
  3. ServiceModelEx(no service bus)
  4. Tools

The ServiceModelEx is included at the source level at many sample projects under WCF Samples. By studying Juval's code you can learn lot of good stuff. Good bless him.

I went through the same process. But, luckily, I needed to download InProc Factory project from Idesign's site and there it was, the ServiceModelEx is bundled with InProc Factory example.

It is stored under InProc Factory.

The zip file has two projects. One is InProc Factory and the other one is ServiceModelEx. Hope this is helpful.

In C++ one might use namespace to keep independent groups working in the same code base from inadvertently creating functions with the same name and thus creating a conflict. My question is, befor...
