  • 1. cross-platform programs
    Bear with me, but I've been reading a lot about how the .NET languages are platform independent, and I assume this means a program written in C# can be run on a Unix or Mac machine. If this assumption is wrong, then nevermind! :) But if it's true, what will be necessary to run these programs on a Mac, for example? I know they would need an equivalent to the .NET Framework, but does something like this exist yet, or is the "platform independence" just a possibility at this point? Thanks.

    Hi, I would like to know if MSDE 2005 is available as I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Do I have to have VS.NET 2005, or anything else. TIA Roy
  • 4. Why System.Web.UI not seem by VS compiler?
    For this line: using System.Web.UI; when building in Visual Studio 2003 I'm getting this error: The type or namespace name 'UI' does not exist in the class or namespace 'SystemWeb' (are you missing an assembly reference?) What is an assembly reference? I'm new to VS 2003 and C# I created a C# project, not as ASP.NET project. But I'm just messing around trying to include various things into a C# class to see how they work.
  • 5. 'using' best practices
    I was wondering why we have to have using System.Data using System.Configuration using etc.... why are they not all lumped into one 'using'? In other words, is there a best way to use project classes with 'using' meaning is it best to put them all in one folder = no performance hit for doing so using MyProject.Classes; or is it best to put them in different folders to avoid a performance hit by 'using' all of them using MyProject.Classes.This; using MyProject.Classes.That; using MyProject.Classes.Other; Thank you

Get IHttpHandler in WCF service

Postby QWxwaGFwYWdl » Sat, 24 May 2008 07:08:00 GMT

Hello,

I want to get the IHttpHandler from a svc service.
With old asmx webservices, I get it using 
WebServiceHandlerFactory.GetHandler .

How can I get IHttpHandler in WCF running in serviceHostingEnvironment : 
aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

OK; *why* do you want the handler? What do you want to do?

Most things you can do by looking at the WCF pipeline ("inspectors",
etc). Yes, cmopatibility mode is an option, but I wouldn't use it
unless I had to - WCF doesn't always run over http or via ASP.NET...

Marc,

I only want to get the Handler as I was doing in an old asmx webservice.

Yes... but why; what do you want to do with the handler? The point is
that there may be different (but more than adequate) ways of doing
this with WCF. Quite simply, WCF isn't actually part of the ASP.NET
pipeline, and handlers are an ASP.NET feature. If you happen to be
running in ASP.NET, you *might* be able to get the handler (not sure)
via compatibility mode, but I would still consider this a hacky
solution, and it adds unnecessary overhead (the ASP.NET shims) to the
WCF stack.

So if you can tell me what you actually want to do, I might be able to
suggest an appropriate WCF way to do this...

I want to process the following code in WCF:

using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols; 
using System.Web.SessionState; 

public class AspCompatWebServiceHandler : 
    System.Web.UI.Page, IHttpAsyncHandler, IRequiresSessionState
{ 
    protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e) 
    { 
        IHttpHandler handler =
            new WebServiceHandlerFactory ().GetHandler(
                this.Context,
                this.Context.Request.HttpMethod,
                this.Context.Request.FilePath,
                this.Context.Request.PhysicalPath);
        handler.ProcessRequest(this.Context);
        this.Context.ApplicationInstance.CompleteRequest();
    } 

    public IAsyncResult BeginProcessRequest(
        HttpContext context, AsyncCallback cb, object extraData) 
    { 
        return this.AspCompatBeginProcessRequest(
            context, cb, extraData); 
    } 

    public void EndProcessRequest(IAsyncResult result) 
    {
        this.AspCompatEndProcessRequest(result); 
    } 
}


In order for AspCompatWebServiceHandler to work its magic, it must be 
registered as the HTTP handler for ASMX files. You can register it using this 
web.config file: 
<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <httpHandlers>
      <add verb="*" path="*.asmx"
        type="AspCompatWebServiceHandler, __code" />
    </httpHandlers>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Thanks for your help Marc.

1.AJAX enabled WCF Service Vs Standard WCF Service

Hi Guys,

In Visual Studio 2008 there is an new item template called something 
like "AJAX enabled" WCF Service along with just the standard WCF Service 
template.

Can anyone explain to me what the actual difference is between the two? 
I can see that the AJAX enabled service has a slightly different config 
file, but I'm unsure what actual difference this makes?

In particular, is the format of the data returned different when its 
AJAX enabled - if so, how is it different?

Many thanks in advance

2.Getting Error when Service account of WCF Service is a new account

Hi, I have WCF service and integrated with STS (WS-Federation). The Service 
exposes 5 endpoints Win, UNT and Federated Windows, Federated UNT and Mex 
endpoint.

My STS Service exposes 3 endpoints WIN, UNT and Mex.

I am getting error when I sent a request from a client to WCF Service 
Fed-Win/ Fed-Unt endpoints. But it is passing for the regular Win and Unt 
endpoints.

Error:
Test method AMUnitTest.SessionAMUnitTest.CreateSessionWithWindows threw 
exception:  System.ServiceModel.Security.SecurityNegotiationException: Secure 
channel cannot be opened because security negotiation with the remote 
endpoint has failed. This may be due to absent or incorrectly specified 
EndpointIdentity in the EndpointAddress used to create the channel. Please 
verify the EndpointIdentity specified or implied by the EndpointAddress 
correctly identifies the remote endpoint.  --->  
System.ServiceModel.FaultException: The request for security token has 
invalid or malformed elements..

After digging, I found that it is throwing that error due to the Service 
account of my WCF Service ( this Service account is the new account just 
created and it do not have any profile in the machine where my Service and 
STS are running.

If I change the the Service Account some other user (which is logged in once 
into the machine, then it is creating the profile in the machine) then I am 
able to send the requests to all endpoints including Fed-Win and Fed-Unt 
endpoints.

So here my question is, how can I give the service account of WCF Service to 
a new user and to hit the Fed-Win / Fed-End points successfully.

Please let me know is there any solution for this.
 
cheers,
Ravi
