I want to create a simple game in asp.net. Javascript will call web methods from the asp.net page and using comet technology asp.net will notify users about various aspects of the game. I also have a WCF duplex service made using Windows Forms that acts as the game server. Basically, it contains a Dictionary<int /*id of the game'*, GameController>. The service implements a basic callback interface:

 
  [ServiceContract(CallbackContract = typeof(ITriviaCallback))]
    public interface ITrivia
    {
        [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
        void RegisterPlayer(long gid, Guid pid);
    }

    public interface ITriviaCallback
    {
        [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
        void OnUserRegistered(long gid, Guid pid, bool hasRegistered);
    }

Open in new window


When I call RegisterPlayer in a Win Forms, Console or WPF app, OnUserRegistered is trigger.
In the asp.net, on OnLoad, i do this:

   
InstanceContext context = new InstanceContext(this);
    triviaClient = new GameServer.TriviaClient(context);
    triviaClient.RegisterPlayer(107, Guid.Empty);

Open in new window


It won't work since the page disposes once the data is sent to the client and the callback comes after that.

What is the best approach to notify asp.net of different changed that occur in the game so that asp.net notifier through comet the client (Javascript)?
