Application running till server ends.

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application


Is it possible in ASP.NET to create a service in means of a windows service which collects information all the time. When I call a webpage this information should be displayed.

And if yes, how do I do that? I already tried to create a WebService create a thread in the constructor and count down a int variable. But when I access this var from a WebMethod the var had still its initial value.

Or do I have to create a windows service and do inter process communication. If yes, can anyone provide some kind of how-to or tutorial?

Another possibility I thought of is to use static variables and start the application by calling a WebMethod. But then it will not be started again if the server restarts.

Can anyone help?

Best Regards,

Looking for a way to have my C# Application running on a Terminal Server in a Remote Desktop Session


I have an application written in C# that has a feature that when ran locally starts a second application with command line arguments.  When my application is ran on a Terminal Server in a remote desktop session, it needs to start the second application on the user's local PC.  I started looking into opening up Virtual Chanel on the server and creating the Virtual Chanel DLL on the client to read any incoming data and start the application but it seems very complicated to do in c# and overkill for something so simple.  I was wondering if anyone had an easier way for me to do this.

Thanks for your help,

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.
