Newbie Question: Configuring WCF Service - Named Pipes Only for PubSub setup

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
I am refactoring an existing application and want to learn / move forward with WCF services contained within a Windows Service.  I have several WCF services that will only connect through Named Pipes - the client applications will receive information through callbacks - what is the proper way to keep the channel open - events may not occur for hours.  Is there a way to keep the session connection open until the clients have disconnected?

.net Named Pipes question


Hello everyone. 


I have two quick questions.


1. Is it posssible for the same thread to wait for two different pipes at the same time?

2. How can I handle situations where multiple client pipes want to connect to the same serever pipe. Is there an internal FIFO?






.NET 3.5 Adds Named Pipes Support

you want a named pipe server, all you have to do is create some instances of NamedPipeServerStream to handle each client connection. I stole the following code straight from the MSDN documentation.

connection string question from a newbie


when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Total newbie question: Calling jQuery in an UpdatePanel?



Please forgive this ignorant question - I've used ASP.NET AJAX a good deal but I'm new to jQuery.  Specifically, is it possible to call or create jQuery events on the fly via an UpdatePanel?  For example, calling a jQuery modal or animating a Label (or <div> contained Literal), etc.

If anyone has any advice or could point me to some easy tutorials on mixing ASP.NET AJAX and jQuery, I'd greatly appreciate it.

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

Named Pipes code

We created a very simplistic wrapper for named pipes. If all you need is a basic messag epipe, this should work for you. Code & info at Named Pipes in .NET thanks - daveVery funny video - Reporting as a Metaphor

Named Pipes provider error - backup script

I have a couple of installs of SQL Server 2005 Express.  One thing it doesn't provide is an agent to schedule jobs so I read where you can use Windows job scheduler to execute a batch job to in turn run a sqlcmd file.  I have that working on one server but on the other server I get the dreaded Name Pipes provider error and it goes on to talk about it may not be setup to allow remote connections.  If I check using Surface Configurator it is set to allow remote connections using both tcpip and named pipes.  To my knowledge all I want it tcpip but I enabled named pipes in an effort to get things working. About the only difference I can see is on the working system the database is a named instance (ie. Servername) versus default instance on the non-working system which shows up as (Servername\SQLEXPRESS).  Hopefully I have my terminology right here. Any tips on how to troubleshoot?  Does it depend on the username I am using?  Domain admin or local server admin or what have you? I should mention I can execute the backup script and it does work.  It is when I run the batch job that it fails. The batch job just says "sqlcmd -i d:\MSSQL_Jobs\backup.sql -o d:\Logs\sqlbackup_output.txt"

Best Practices for WPF Single Instance with named pipes?

Hi, I've developed a WPF server-hub-typed application, and a bunch of client-typed applications. The hub app is always a single instance (using mutex), and implements named pipes.   However, I'm having problem with the clients. The clients are applications that send data to the hub. They need to start the hub if it is not already running.   The problem with these clients is, they are optional and portable. Hence, the user might store them in different locations on their system. I really do not wish to deploy the Hub application with every client. What's the best way for me to implement this?   Another thing, do I *have* to use Process.Start(path, args) to start my hub application?    I've attached a sample project that I've done. But there are several problems with it, which I've not figured out how to fix. http://www.sendspace.com/file/ykhdg0   Thanks Min Chew   [References I've used:] http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/maxim/archive/2010/02/13/single-instance-application-manager.aspx <-- This is the one that seems the most promising (single instance + IPC), but I want a bare-minimum example so I can get a better hang on things. Besides, it crashes when I click on any of the 3 Run buttons http://www.switchonthecode.com/tutorials/wcf-tutorial-basic-interprocess-communication <-- Named pipe IPC using wcf http://www.switchonthec

SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation and Service Pack 1 Question

I am migrating a SQL 2000 server to a SQL 2008 R2 server (on different physical servers) . When I ordered SQL Server 2008 the volume licensing allowed me to download sql server web 2008, sql server web 2008 R2 and sql server 2008 service pack 1. I don't know why I have three options to download. Don't I just need to just install the sql server 2008 Web R2? Are there any sql 2008 R2 service packs available?   

Dynamically adding User Controls -- newbie question!

I am new to ASP.NET (coming from ColdFusion, thank goodness I'm away from that!).  And I am have THE hardest time understanding how to work with forms in ASP.NET.  Here's what I am doing:Dynamically add User Controls to a PlaceHolder based on some int value (which currently is passed in a HiddenField).Fire an event if the WebControls inside of the User Control change, then handle that event in the Main Page (i.e. save the input to DB)When the user clicks the "Next/Continue" button, the next controls for the next page are loaded.And I guess maybe I just can't seem to get how things work in ASP.NET, because I am really struggling with the general idea of how ASP.NET flows.  Should I be dynamically loading the controls in Page_Init, or Page_Load?  Or should I load the controls when the buttonclick event is fired?Do I have to add the axCtrl.OnDataChange += new EventHandler(HandleAxControlDataChange); line on Page_Load?  Or should I put this in When I first load the UserControl, I need to initialize some WebControls within the UserContorl.  Is there a way to know if I have loaded new user controls into my placeholder?  I can't use Page.IsPostback, because after the first page, every page is a postback from the buttonclick.Any help for this confused newbie would be GREATLY appreciated!!Here's what I have: pu

how to choose between Shared Memory, Named Pipes, TCP/IP, VIA?

What protocol to choose? Or, Why are they so many? I am mostly interested in contexts: 1)  development on local machine 2) development from remote machine (having SQL Server on another machine)  3) Production 4) what else should I bother/know about? I am developer, mostly using Developer Ed. mostly locally on Windows XP Pro SP3, and really had never bothered which protocol was used as far as connection was being successful. And I had never had any troubles to bother looking and choosing between protocols Why and when should I bother to choose between protocols for development?

General Setup Question regarding Ssytem.XML assembly

Hello,I have a solution running perfectly well on one machine (or actually quite a few machines).  All the code is in source safe and I am trying to set up a new machine with the solution but keep getting the following build errors:'XName' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XNamespace' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XElement'is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XAttribute' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb and so on...The main difference that I noticed was that on the machines where the application builds, in the property page of the project whgere the build erros are occurring I check the reference list and I see a reference to the System.XML assembly (GAC,  However in the machine with the build errors, even when I try to add a reference to the System.XML assembly I get no error messages, but afterr adding the assembly does NOT appear in the reference list.In addition I have verified that I am able to create a new web application without any build or runtime errors on the machine experiencing these issues.Any feedback would be greatly appreicated.Thanks.
