Communicate with Forms application from Windows service RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows service that uses Managed Extensibility Framework to load Plugins to do a number of things.

    I will also have a Windows Forms or WPF Application that will receive information from one of the Plugins.

    Both the Windows Service  and GUI Application may or may not be on the same box.

    I'm trying to determine the best way to communicate between the Plugin and the GUI Application.
    Communication may need to be 2 way.

    What would be the best to use?

    Name Pipes
    Xml Files

    Or is the another way that I should be looking at?
