How to share modules between WCF webservices..
Posted on 2010-09-16
I've got a question that I thought I'd find the answer to pretty quickly, but that I'm now into my third day and can't find the answer..
We have created our first WCF webservice. This will not be our only webservice. We'd like to know what strategy (if any) can be used to share class modules across the webservices without having to recompile the webservices?
On our ASP.NET site we can just copy a .cs file into the app_code directory and the website automatically uses the new code without having to publish the whole website. Can we achieve a similar result with webservices? Basically, we'd like to create the interface and implementation in the webservice dll but only reference outside modules instead of including them in. We'd like to be able to overwrite an existing module and have the webservice start using it without having to recompile and re-deploy the webservice.
Is this possible? I can't seem to find documentation on best practice for webservice design in this area. Any help or link to a resource that discusses this would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance =)
