How to have WF instances automatically continue after a host restarts?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
I haven't been able to figure out how to get WF 4.0 to automatically start persisted workflows when it starts up. In 3.5 this happened automatically. For example say your WF host crashes while running and restarts, I'm wanting to know how to have it grab the WF instances that were running previous and start them again.

How to use single windows service to host multiple WCF Services instances (Each instance of WCF is i

How to use single windows service to host multiple WCF Services. I have a mutiple instance of same WCF service in different folder, each instance has unique service name and port. WCFService has reference to Reg-Free COM Reference, i have Native.WCFService.manifest in each folder. Ex: WCFService1 is in "C:\WCFService01\WCFService.dll, Native.OCWCFService.manifest, OCWCFService.dll.config WCFService2 is in "C:\WCFService02\WCFService.dll, Native.OCWCFService.manifest, OCWCFService.dll.config Now i need host above services from single Windows Service. I am trying to create AppDomain for each above WCFService Instance from Windows Service and then host. Its working if i register COM dll in the server using regsvr32, but when i un register COM dll, i am getting unable to load COM component .... This looks like AppDomain is not loading COM DLL and Manifest files. Its looks strange but we need it in this way because we have production and test environment in the same server. Everything works fine if create a seperate Windows Service for each WCFService Instance, but my manager wants single Windows Service :). Any help whould be really appreciated.  ravi kumar reddy

Suspend / Resume Instances within Workflow Service Host (in Windows Service)

We are hosting WF 4 worklfow instances within a Windows Service that uses the Workflow Service host container.   On the Windows Service OnStart we start the workflow service host (w/ multiple WCF endpoints such as start workflow instance, cancel workflow instance, poll workflow instance status, etc.) and these endpoints create or work on one or more long running workflow instances.     My question is, if a user attempts to stop the Windows Service while workflow instance(s) are running, what is the best way to manage this scenario.   Our inclination is to persist these workflows (using sql persistence) and then on the next start of the Windows Service, resume these workflow instances and allow them to continue to completion.    In OnStart, we have a handle to the Workflow Service host.    How can we iterate through all the active workflow instances in OnStop and then in OnStart, resume these after the workflow service host is opened and running?   Are there are any methods of managing this scenario?    Thanks

Multiple Instances of User Control


I have a user control that I place on a page severl times.  When I make a selection on a ddl in one one control the SelectedIndexChanged event fires for all the control on the page for that ddl.  So I get duplication of an insert that I do.  Is there a way to make sure these events are isolated so this doesn't happen.


Automatically redirect to HTTPS and check if SSL is active



I've set in the web.config:

    <!-- User Authentication -->
    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Page/View/Content/Login.aspx" timeout="2880" requireSSL="true" />

This works fine. If there is no ssl connection, the login form doesn't continue. But I would like to check if ssl is active (in codebehind) and, if it's possible, to automatically the user to the https page if he's currently on http. (I could do this job by manually redirect with page.response("https://url.../login.aspx"); but this is not really generic. For example if the webapp is moved to another domain it doesn't work anymore... I'm looking for something like: FormsAuthentication.RedirectWithSSL(); or so... :D)


vs2010 web deployment project restarts w3svc even when restartwwwservice = false


We've updated some of our projects from VS2008 to VS2010.  When these projects are deployed the w3svc is restarted on the target machine, even when restartwwwservice = false in the vdproj file.


This was a problem in 2008 until SP1 (http://forums.asp.net/p/1300097/2534736.aspx).  Does this same problem exist in VS2010?


This is a major problem for us -  we need to be able to deploy projects without restarting IIS.


I've tried creating a new web deployment package and setting the restartWWWService field to false, but this still does a restart when it's installed.


Has anyone come across this problem in VS2010?

Office 2003: Host an Interactive Visio Drawing Surface in .NET Custom Clients


Microsoft Office Visio 2003 introduces a new drawing component that allows you to embed an interactive drawing surface into your application's user interface. You can drive the Visio drawing component from events in your host application or with data from a Web Service and an ADO.NET data adapter. The Visio drawing component supports the rich Visio application programming model, giving you control over how graphics are used and displayed on the drawing surface. This article explains how to embed the Visio drawing component into a C#-based Windows Forms client app that retrieves data from the Fabrikam 2.0 Web Service.

Scripting: Windows Script Host 5.6 Boasts Windows XP Integration, Security, New Object Model


Windows Script Host (WSH) 5.6, a major upgrade for the WSH environment, provides some significant improvements over previous versions. A brand new security model that is tightly integrated with security in Windows XP allows administrators to place fine-grained restrictions on scripts reducing the risk from malicious code. In addition, local scripts can now run on remote machines, and enhancements to the object model reduce the amount of boilerplate code needed when writing professional code. This overview of WSH 5.6 explains these changes and how .NET and scripting work together.

DHTML and .NET: Host Secure, Lightweight Client-Side Controls in Microsoft Internet Explorer


In the past, Web developers often used ActiveX controls if they wanted customized client-side functionality incorporated into their Web applications. Now, they can build objects supported by the Microsoft .NET Framework which are more compact, lightweight, secure, and seamlessly integrated. By hosting .NET Windows Forms controls in Internet Explorer, developers can realize many of their client-side Web development goals. This article adapts ActiveX concepts for use with Windows Forms, and builds a multifile upload application that demonstrates these techniques.

Windows Script Host: New Code-Signing Features Protect Against Malicious Scripts


Downloading scripts from the Web or e-mail leaves users vulnerable to security risks because scripts can't be signed. But now developers can use Windows Script Host (WSH) to hash scripts so users can verify their source and safety. With WSH, scripts can be signed or verified using all the same tools ordinarily used to sign EXE, CAB, DLL, and OCX files. This article discusses public-key cryptosystems, the process of signing and verifying scripts in WSH, and several warnings about attacks that could potentially be made against cryptographically secured scripts and ways in which to avoid them.

Microsoft .NET: Implement a Custom Common Language Runtime Host for Your Managed App


While most application developers may not need to write a custom host, understanding what is involved provides a great deal of insight into the architecture of the CLR. After covering how the CLR is started and loaded into a process, how to set the available configuration options, and how a host defines application domains, this article explains how to design a custom host. Important concepts include making the right decisions about the application domain boundaries for the host, configuring them correctly, loading and executing user code, and resolving references to assemblies. Setting security policy and unloading application domains as the application shuts down are also explained.
