WCF Hosting Choice with Elearning App
Posted on 2012-09-11
I'm trying to figure out what is the most effective and easy to maintain means of hosting a WCF Service for my Elearning App.
My App works like this.
2. Every few seconds, the lesson sends back info on the student status to the SCORM adapter which sends it back to my app that enters that info in the database
The only calls that my WCF Service (I call it SCORM_Service) gets are from the lessons launched by mp app.
I am looking at the variety of ways that WCF can be hosted and can't figure out which one I should be using. Locally, I have created a separate project and hosted it locally at localhost/scorm/scormservice.svc and that seems to work - but not sure how to deploy it to the web.
Am confused with the different hosting options (IIS7, console, separate windows service application)
Ideally, what I'd like to do is include the SCORM_Service in my Client App - since that is the only app that consumes this service and have it get published to the Web or get updated when I deploy my Client App.
Any help on how to do this greatly appreciated.
