windows service, multithreaded programming
Posted on 2011-09-02
I have a timer in my windows service which checks database every 5 minutes and if there are any entries, it reads those and with that data it performs a HTTPS Post request to a 3rd party. Due to restrictions from 3rd party i can only include only 20 entries from the database and include it in one request. However, i can send request every 10 seconds but i have to make sure i receive a response, before i send another one. Right now it makes request to the 3rd party every 5 minutes,
but i want to change it so that it can send request with a dealy of 10 seconds for every request
but at the same time making sure that i receive a response before i send another one. So, the service needs to check database every 5 minutes, but every time it checks it and if there is data, say more than 20, it needs to take first 20 and do a request, get a response and send another request. any suggestions?
