Documentation on impersonation of Windows LiveID with data service?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
Hi There, I'm not finding any documentation on impersonating a Windows LiveID over a WCF data service. I can find documentation on Windows Auth. For example, this article is great, but its first step is "Configure Your Service to Use Windows Authentication": http://geekswithblogs.net/manesh/archive/2009/04/23/setting-up-wcf-to-impersonate-client-credentials.aspx. I'm not sure how to do this when I'm working with the LIVEID. Alternatively, and even preferably, if there's a way I can manipulate the connection string the data service is using from the WCF endpoint, that would be ideal. I need to grab some info about the user in the Silverlight app that's using the data service, and somehow impersonate that user. The user is a Windows LiveID, which is what I have hard-coded in my connection string in my web.config. Thanks!  Web: http://invoc.net

Can Windows Service handle Data Staging and load operations?



I am developing an application which requires data staging, WCF module to consume web service app and data loading Module. The data staging module will work with SSIS package and data load module will use Stored Procedures and WCF module which will consume web service and send data from the staged tables.

All these modules will be part of single application which will be configured as a Windows Service at the server end. Development platform: VS2010,C#4.0

Given that, can Windows service handle all the above operations? How can I use error handling effectively? Since this is a background process, I need very good error and trace handling routines.

Appreciate any inputs or references on these. 





Windows Azure service using arbitrary POST data


I need to spin up a Windows Azure service that accepts an HTTP POST with an arbitrary set of XML.  I have the service working fine with a specific XML signature, but now I'm trying to implement another method that will take any set of XML.  I've been searching for articles to help, and ran into a couple:



The first one shows the use of a attribute on the <binding> tag called contentTypeMapper.  The second shows how to implement that class, but adds the binding in code, not configuration.  I have been unsuccessful in creating my endpoint/binding/behavior in code, so I'm forced to do it in configuration.  So, I implemented my ContentTypeMapper class and added the attribute to my binding, but got a runtime error complaining about an unknown attribute contentTypeMapper.  I've checked the spelling and the case, and it is what it's supposed to be.  I'm guessing it's because I

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Windows Services: New Base Classes in .NET Make Writing a Windows Service Easy


Windows services are applications that run outside of any particular user context in Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP. The creation of services used to require expert coding skills and generally required C or C++. Visual Studio .NET now makes it easy for you to create a Windows service, whether you're writing code in C++, C#, or Visual Basic. You can also write a Windows service in any other language that targets the common language runtime. This article walks you through the creation of a useful Windows service, then demonstrates how to install, test, and debug the service.

Marshalling Your Data: Efficient Data Transfer Techniques Using COM and Windows 2000


The way you choose to transfer data is vitally important in a distributed application. Windows 2000 provides several new features that allow you to transfer data more efficiently. Lightweight handlers allow you to write smart proxies that can cache results and perform buffered reads and writes, minimizing the number of network calls. Windows 2000 also allows you to use pipe interfaces to transfer large amounts of data efficiently through a read-ahead facility. This article illustrates several ways to improve data transfer in Windows 2000 using these new features. It also reports the results of transfer time tests and provides recommendations for transferred buffer sizes.

Getting AppDomain.UnhandledException event to work in a Windows Service

Nearly every forum thread I have found on "catching unhandled exceptions in a service" seems to end up where I am.  The supposed solution is the use of the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException event.  But it doesn't work for someone, who then asks why and gets no answer.  Same for me; I can't get the event to happen.  It's as if I need the ServiceProcess version of Application.SetUnhandledExceptionMode(), which doesn't exist. For diagnosing this, I start a timer in a child object of the service and then throw an exception in the timer event handler.  Simple enough to simulate the real situation.  I have tried subscribing to the UnhandledException event in at least a half dozen locations throughout the service, from the Program that runs ServiceBase.Run() to the constructor of the object that owns the Timer, but it never catches this exception. The VS debugger recognizes that the forced exception is unhandled and takes me to the place where is thrown, letting me know it is an unhandled exception. Why doesn't my handler catch it?  Running without the debugger, the exception throws, the timer thread crashes, the service continues merrily along, and nothing gets logged anywhere.  That is NOT the result I need.  What are the people for whom this works doing that I am not doing? How can I at least get the offe
