Hello everyone,

I have a problem with accessing duplex service in Silverlight. From what I've seen in trace viewer, service is established but client didn't contact this service at all.

This is how proxy look like:

   [ServiceContract(Name = "NotificationDuplexService", CallbackContract = typeof(INotificationDuplexClient))]
   public interface INotificationDuplexService
      [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
      void Heartbeat(string msg);

   public interface INotificationDuplexClient
      [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
      void Receive(NotificationMessage msg);

Open in new window

Parts of code from Enterprise service bus:

            <add name="pollingDuplex" type="System.ServiceModel.Configuration.PollingDuplexHttpBindingCollectionElement, System.ServiceModel.PollingDuplex, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>

            <binding  name="myPollingDuplex" duplexMode="MultipleMessagesPerPoll"  maxOutputDelay="00:00:01">

            <behavior name="psbBehavior">
               <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>
               <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="True" />
               <dataContractSerializer />
               <serviceThrottling maxConcurrentSessions="1024" />

         <service name="Prodigy.Esb.Modules.Notification.NotificationModuleService" behaviorConfiguration="psbBehavior">
            <!-- Endpoint for Silverlight access policy -->           
            <endpoint address="" binding="pollingDuplex" bindingConfiguration="myPollingDuplex" contract="Prodigy.Proxies.INotificationDuplexService" />
            <!-- Mex binding used for meta data exchange -->
            <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" name="MetadataBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
                  <add baseAddress="http://localhost:11559"/>

Open in new window

Service (NotificationModuleService) is in module (NotificationModule). Below are related parts to this issue.


         _NotificationServiceHost = new ServiceHost(typeof(NotificationModuleService));

Open in new window

Service(This piece of code is never reached) :

      public void Heartbeat(string msg)
         _Client = OperationContext.Current.GetCallbackChannel<INotificationDuplexClient>();

Open in new window

On client side I create service reference and made proxy this way:

EndpointAddress address = new EndpointAddress("http://localhost:11559/");
         PollingDuplexHttpBinding binding = new PollingDuplexHttpBinding(PollingDuplexMode.MultipleMessagesPerPoll);

         _Proxy = new Prodigy.UI.Infrastructure.ServiceReference.NotificationDuplexServiceClient(binding, address);

Open in new window

And finally this is call for Heartbeat:

      public void Heartbeat()
         _Proxy.HeartbeatAsync("This is the test message");

Open in new window

Thank you for your advices,

Other than the trace log do you have any event/error logs?
