Make a wcf service running on windows ce 6.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I have a question:

    Is it possible to make a WCF service which is deployed and ran on Widnows CE (device : PanelView Plus device) platform.  

    And then other process in PanelView can use it.

    I ask this question because I search in google, and found that many answers say that Windows CE support WCF, but actually the WCF service is running on Windows platform (such as Windows xp, 7), and application in Windows CE communicate with the WCF service which is in Windows OS. But we don't like this way. 

    Thanks in advance.

  • In theory yes. In practice you would need to write everything yourself which is probably impractical. Proper implementation is likely to be more complex than all of your projects combined. 

    Correct, devices support limited WCF features and client side of the things only.

    If you need to implement IPC you probably don't need WCF though. Check this out:

  • Hi Ilya,

    Thanks a lot for your reply, it is very useful.

    I will do more research about IPC and other approach. 

    Thank you again!
