Debug WCF Service hosted on local IIS not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

I have one solution WCFSampleSolution and it has all my projects - Web Service, Client and Website. The structure is something like:

 + WCFSampleSolution
    - C:\WCFSample\Website
    - WCFService
    - WCFWebClient

I created WCFService project for my services. It contains IService1.cs and Service1.cs. Then I hosted the service in IIS. I did this by creating a website and adding .svc and web.config files to the website project. Then published it in IIS. When I run http:\\MyMachineName\Website\Service.svc, it shows the service description. Then I create the web client that calls the webservice. I used the service reference to add the service. It calls a method of Service1. It works fine. But I amnot able to debug this program/setup. I verified the config files in WCFWebClient project and Website project and they have proper debug settings.

<compilation debug="true">


 

I put break points but control never goes to my seb service. I also tried attach process, but it also doesn't work. But I was able to debug one of my other WCF projects. The setup was little different. In that project I copied the .svc file and config in my web client and the debug works fine.

Please HELP!!

How to debug Windows Workflow when it is hosted by WCF Service ?

  

Hi,

I have build a test solution in two parts :

1) WCF service which hosts a Windows Workflow (statemachine).

2) Console application which consumes the WCF Service.

It works well, but if I do a bad process, it crashes which is normal. Exemple : the client calls an event which is impossible to execute given the current state according to the workflow design. In this case, the client receives a WCF exception. This exception is masked, which is normal (an option has to be set in WCF side to enable exception transmission).

The problem is that, althought I launched the console application with the debugger, with the WCF service project, the debugger doesn't break on Workflow errors in WCF error side. (However, I saw that non-Workflow errors in WCF side are still stopped by the debugger)

How could I force the VS debugger to break on Workflow WCF errors ?

Thanks.

How can I debug Windows Service using Visual Studio?

  
How can I debug Windows Service using Visual Studio? I wrote in Visual Studio 2008 Command Promt: installutil -i c:\projects\MyProject\bin\debug\win.exe I did Start to may service ,but every time that I want to debug service I get: Cannot start service from the command line or a debugger. A Windows Service must first be installed (using installutil.exe) and then started with the ServerExplorer, Windows Services Administrative tool or the NET START command.   What am I doing wrong?   Thanks, Raya        

Cannot get service reference for Net.tcp service hosted in IIS7

  
HiI've got a service that I want to host in IIS7. The service runs over net.tcp (currently without security), but I am unable to create a service reference to it, or call it, using the net.tcp protocol. My event log is populated with lots of errors related to ASP.NET and System.ServiceModel, 3.0.0.0The relevant services are installed and running (net.tcp port sharing service and net.tcp listener adapter).O/S : Window7 RTMDevStudio: 2008I publish the webservice to IIS7 and I get a valid page when navigating to the published .svc file (which tells me to use svtutil.exe and point it at the net.tcp endpoint).For that, I get this error :    The message could not be dispatched because the service at the endpoint address 'net.tcp://gedm-desktop.profiledc01.appdevelop.local/ManageAVMEP/ManageAVMAgent.svc/mex' is unavailable for the protocol of the address.Googling the problem leads me down several blind alleys :(I cannot determine what is causing the net.tcp listener to keep stopping? Everything is fine if I use the wsHttpBinding.Any tips or pointers to a course of action would be appreciated.ThanksGed My event log is full of errors (here is a sample) :-------An error occurred while trying to listen for the URL '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT/ManageAVMEP'. This worker process will be terminated. Sender Information: net.tcp Exception: System.ServiceModel.WasHos

Question about WCF Service hosted in Windows Service

  
Hi, I have little experience with WCF and working on a projet that requires WCF Service instance to run 24x7. After searching for a solution and reading about WCF, I think if I host it under Windows Service I can have a single instance of WCF Service running 24x7. Is this correct? I just successfully ran the MSDN sample project that hosts CalculatorService in Windows Service. I realized that Windows Service cannot communicate with WCF Service it is hosting (I do not have any experience with writing Windows Service). I wrote a test function (public) in Windows Service and tried to call it from WCF Service but it did not appear in the Intellisense list. Is my assumption correct or is there a way to establish communication between Windows Service and its hosted WCF Service? Thanks. kr

Duplex communication and calling clients from outside the hosted service

  
Hey,   I am currently building an interface between two applications: One that hosts a WCF service and receives external input (e.g. from a sensory system) and another which subscribes to updates sent by the first.   It is quite easy to call back to the client if I create a ServiceHost and provide it with an instance of my service (using ServiceHost.SingletonInstance). However, if I use a PerSession instance mode, how is it possible to call the clients when I receive an updated from the external sensory system?   Thank you for your time!   Cheers, Till

WCF Service not working with ToolkitScriptManager

  
Back in the "old days" one would use the <asp:ScriptManager></asp:ScriptManager> and <asp:ServiceReferenc /> to allow for WCF Service integration into javascript on web forms.  Example: <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">     <Services>         <asp:ServiceReference Path="~/Services/Service1.svc" />     </Services> </asp:ScriptManager> Now we are to use the <AjaxControlToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager></AjaxControlToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager> to accomplish the same task, but this doesn't seem to be working. Example: <AjaxControlToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager ID="ToolkitScriptManager1" runat="server">     <Services>        <asp:ServiceReference Path="~/Services/Service1.svc" />     </Services> </AjaxControlToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager> The former works. while the latter does not. Any suggestions? Visual Studio 2008 Professional .Net Framework 3.5 AJAX Toolkit 3.5.40412.0<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">    <Services>        <asp:ServiceReference Path="~/Services/Service1.svc" />&nb

Sharepoint Search and Secure Store Service not working

  
Hi There I am having issues with a few Sharepoint Services When I try to search for a document on any SharePoint site, I recieve an "Internal Server Error Exception". However when I checked the log files, I couldn't find any error messages matching with the given correlation ID. The search was working 2-3 weeks ago. Also 2 weeks ago, I started receiving warnings in the Health Analyzer saying “The Security token service is not available”. I am wondering if the security token service breaking down is related to the search issues, and if so what suggestions I could try to fix this issue. I am also unable to access the secure store service. In Central Administration->Application Management->Manage Service Applications, I try to click on the Secure Store Service, but there is no Proxy attached to the service, and I receive a message “No Secure Store Service Application Proxy ID was found”. When I check the Logfile, I receive these errors: 08/10/2010 11:11:32.94               w3wp.exe (0x18E4)                                      0x0ADC SharePoint Foundation     &nb

Can´t set up local system accounts as service accounts in sharepoint 2010

  
HI I made an inplace upgrade to sharepoint 2010. I want to setup performance point services. but it doesn´t allow me to set a local system account as the application pool account for performance point services application. It doesn´t allow me to register a new account it says The specified user account "domain\username" is a local account. Local accounts should only be used in stand alone mode. The application pool account for the site collection that I upgraded is a local system account so I don´t get it? I tried this http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112 However the upgrade fails after this. Is there any way that I do the inplace upgrade and it would allow me to use local system accounts has service accounts? Without Active directory? Thanks      

WCF Service hosted in IIS 6 failing on idle timeout and does not restart

  
I've got a WCF service hosted in IIS 6 with its own application pool.  The application pool is running under a domain service account.  It appears that the application pool's idle shutdown setting is killing WCF service and subsequent requests to the WCF service get an exception as listed below I can only access after I browse to the .svc page in order to get it working again.   I've went through the svc tracing and able to see where the ServiceHost closes down. I have tried various session management techniques with no result. I haven't read anything about having to disable the idle timeout in IIS 6 when hosting a WCF service, and I suspect that there shouldn't be any need to.   Can anyone provide any insight into why this is happening?   ******************* My client exception ******************* Test method **********  threw exception:  System.ServiceModel.ProtocolException: The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly. The first 1024 bytes of the response were: '<html>     <head>         <title>Runtime Error</title>
