Long Running Service Operation & WCF RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI

    I have a requirement where in my service operation is going to be long running process. I dont want to rely on typical duplex call back mechanism cos these service may be used in non wcf technologies as well. can anyone suggest best practices, approach, alternative to achieve the same

    Many thanks

  • Hi,

    the best practice for such an requirement is simply an async call.

    So you just issue the start of an operation and this call just gives back an id.

    Then the client can ask if the operation is completed (handing the id).

    That way we solve such long running issues.

    Mit den besten Grüßen,
