VSA scripting

I am working on a method of extending our application to allow customers to create scripts and have these scripts run at certain key points within our system.

I have managed to get the scripts loaded, and can execute them successfully.

However to speed the run time process up I want to precompile all the scripts and have subsequent calls make reference to these pre compiled scripts.  The issue I have is that I have no idea when the site loses the compiled scripts.  Under IIS the objects seem to hang around between calls, if I create the script site under a regular Windows App the site goes away after I close the app.

I thought about creating a service to keep the site definetly running, however I notice that you only get one call to the GetGlobalInstance, which probably means that a single global object would be used by many clients, and therefore can not be used in a multi user environment.

Lots of things don't make sense and I can't find any answers, your help would be appreciated.

I guess when the engine I have created goes out of scope the scripts are no longer loaded.  This is kind of what you'd expect, however when you create a site you specify a URI that identifies your code to the script engine.  I would have expected this URI to be available to other objects.  I basically want to be able to compile once and run many.

When I try adding the object to a service (or remoting it) I get problems instantiating the object, I think that's because the class I have to derive from IBaseVsa class can not be serialized.

I made the object serializable and that seems to work now.  Thanks for the help.
