What is the main advantage of WAS? When it is used?

Posted By :Ashutosh Jha     Posted Date :March 30, 2014    Points :40   Category :WCF 
WAS is the short form of Windows activation service.WAS is a new server available with Vista and Windows Server 2008. The new server
is capable of deploying WCF applications which is driven
through different communication protocols such as TCP, Named
Pipes, MSMQ etc together with HTTP. IIS can host WCF
services that communicates only using HTTP while WAS
supports all of the above given protocols. So for an
application that communicates internally using TCP can be
deployed in HTTP by adding a few changes in the
configuration. So the same applicaton communicates with TCP
and HTTP under a host.

What is the main purpose of having Conversation Group?

  
It's a way of grouping all the dialogs that are used for a particular task. All the dialogs associated with processing a particular order would be grouped into a single conversation group. The conversation group is implemented as a conversation group identifier, which is included with all messages in all dialogs contained in the conversation group. When a message is received from any of the dialogs in a conversation group, the conversation group is locked with a lock that is held by the receiving transaction. For the duration of the transaction, only the thread that holds the lock can receive messages from any of the dialogs in the conversation group. This makes our order entry application much easier to write because even though we use many threads for scalability, any particular order is only processed on one thread at a time. This means we don't have to make our application resilient to problems that are caused by the simultaneous processing of a single order on multiple threads. (More...)
