WCF Service Library creation and hosting it in IIS

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF


I have created WCF service library.

I am following these articles : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733766.aspx

and http://www.aspfree.com/c/a/ASP.NET/Developing-a-WCF-Service-Library-and-Hosting-it-as-WCF-Web-Service-Using-VS2K8/3/

to test the service locally,I open an instance of Internet Explorer and browse to the service's URL: http://localhost/IISHostedCalc/Service.svc

But it gives HTTp 400 bad request.

It works only when I run the service application. I have also removed the client name from the debug box which  detachs the client from the service.

Can you please tell me If I am on right track. Thank you

Following is my web.config

<?xml version="1.0"

Hosting WCF Service Library in IIS version 5.1



I am having problems running the .svc page in my browser. I followed the instructions on http://www.aspfree.com/c/a/ASP.NET/Developing-a-WCF-Service-Library-and-Hosting-it-as-WCF-Web-Service-Using-VS2K8/

It runs fine only when I run(f5) the service application and then open IE to access : http://localhost/AEDEV_LER_Service/LERService.svc

As soon as the application stops running and I try to access http://localhost/AEDEV_LER_Service/LERService.svc it gives HTTP 400 bad request.

I have IIS 5.1 on Windows XP. Aam I hosting my service right in IIS ?How can I run this http://localhost/AEDEV_LER_Service/LERService.svc independent of running the app. Kindly guide me.

Thank you

Shielding Exceptions at WCF Service Boundaries using Microsoft Enterprise Library 4.1

To enable the exception shielding feature in my WCF service I have done the following steps Added references of the following assemblies: Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.dll Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.WCF.dll Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common.dll Microsoft.Practices.ObjectBuilder2.dll Added a Using statement for Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.WCF. Added the ExceptionShielding attribute to a service implementation class and specified the name of the exception policy to use as a constructor parameter. Add the Exception Handling Application Block configuration sections to the service's Web.config file. <add name="WCFServicePropogate">         <exceptionTypes>           <add type="System.Exception, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"             postHandlingAction="ThrowNewException" name="Exception">             <exceptionHandlers>               <add exceptionMessage="I created the exception" faultContractType=

Need help understanding why to use 'ServiceBase.Run' in Windows Service hosting a WCF service

A year or 2 ago I successfully implemented a WCF service hosted in a Windows Service.  Now I am going to do another one, so I went back to my 1st project.  Based on the following links example (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733069.aspx) and my 1st project I implmented the following code: Public Shared Sub Main() ServiceBase.Run(New MyWindowsService()) End Sub Now, I read up on this in the MSDN and understand that registers the service with the SCM and calls the onStart method, correct?  The way I read it, this code is necessary.However, now I am looking at a few newer examples of hosting a WCF service in a Windows Service, and the 'Main' Sub with that 'ServiceBase.Run' call is not even included, but apparently still works.  For example the following MSDN tutorial doesn't use that call at all:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc949080.aspx#    It just has the onStart method overloaded which I also do.So my questions are, is that code in Sub Main needed and why?  Doesn't pressing start from the 'Services Manager' console call the onStart method anyways of the service?Thank you,

Hosting web service inside Windows Application

  I would like to host my web service inside windows application. I prepared a short example basing on: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa529311.aspx I have 2 projects created with default templates: Web Service project where I did not change anything: namespace WebService1 { [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")] [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)] public class Service : System.Web.Services.WebService { public Service() { } [WebMethod] public string HelloWorld() { return "Hello World"; } } } Windows Project in which I changed only the main form class: public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); Uri address = new Uri("soap.tcp://localhost/TestService"); SoapReceivers.Add(new EndpointReference(address), typeof(WebService1.Service)); } } The problem is that when I compile and run this Windows Application, I can`t discover this Web Service. There must be something wrong in my solution. Could you please help me by telling what may be wrong? Thank you for help in advance.MCP

how to create a doc library item using web service

Hi, I think this is a common question, but I coulnd't come up with anything at this point. I'd like to create an item in a document library using SP web service. - no uploading a file. I have created an item using ../copy.asmx web service. Using the WS function(copyWebService.CopyIntoItems function), it seems suitable to create an item AND at the same time to upload a file. I don't think I can just create an item with this function. How do i just create an item? any reply is appreciated.

Config Hosting multiple WCF services in one NT service


Hello there,


I've a question about hosting a service in a selfhosting scenario (not IIS or WAS).


For example, I have one WCFService with a config file (web.config). In this config file a system.serviceModel section exists, but also several appSettings.


Hosting in IIS is very simple. I created a svc file and voila, you can call the service. I do not have to place the configsettings of the WCFService into IIS.


Now I turn to host the WCFService in another host, a Windows NT service (or a win/console app).


Why do I have to place all of the WCFService configuration settings in the app.config of the NT Service? Why not just a reference to the physical path of the WCFService.


In the case of three WCFServices hosted by one NT Service, I have to place three web.config contents into the app.config of the NT Service. (Am I wrong? I hope so.)


tnx for reply!




hosting a WPF control library in a WF application


When I try to integrate a WPF control library in a WF code activity object I get the exception "The calling thread must be STA, because many UI components require this."  Here is a snippet:


private void OpenGUI()


           //Load GUI

           mainGUI = new WPFControlLibrary.UserControl_GUI();



When the mainGUI = line is executed, I get the error.

Please excuse my ignorance, I am a novice in WF and WPF.


Thanks in advance for any help.
