Server - Client communication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I"m trying to find a good solution to a problem that i have.

    i"m planning & developing  a client - server system, and one of the requierments is that the server need to communicate with the clients for those resonse:

    1. notify every client that new configuration created, and they need to get it (via web service)

    2. perform actions against specific client (i.e. Stop\Start ).

    My questions are:

    1. what is the best architecture for those kind of requests ?

    2. is WCF gives me a good solution for this kind of problems (server communication with clients) ?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Baruch

  • Yes WCF provides all that is required to resolve your problems.

    WCF provides the facility of callback whereby server can callback clients for notification,  publisher subscriber design pattern can be applied for such tasks.
