AppFabric for existing WCF services RRS feed

Answers

  • As I said, in general, there are no specific requirements for the services to be hosted in AppFabric. In reality the services are hosted in WAS (IIS) and AppFabric just adds some additional functionality, like monitoring and persistance. As an example, take this simple service How to: Host a WCF Service in WAS. As soon as you have Windows Server AppFabric installed, you could monitor it in AppFabric dashboard.

  • AppFabric just add monitoring capabilities to WCF services and persistence to durable services  but there is no special requirements for the service implementation. Therefor, it's possible to host existing services.

  • Thanks Aelx,

    could you forward useful reference/example please, where it AppFabric is implemented for existing services rather than building the service with AppFabric template from scratch.
