Need WCF Host Learning Project

Posted on 2013-06-18
Last Modified: 2013-06-19
I have found many VS solutions on the Internet which contain several projects referencing other class library projects.
I would like to find a solution containing a WFC Host console Project which runs like a real web host. Then I can add a web project to query it. Make any sense?

Do you want a host console project that expose a service through a binding that works with http?

This could be the most basic project that I could do

You must modify app.config file in MathHost to change the base address and use your machine name
You can open the Visual Studio as administrator to avoid the use of netsh to be able to run the program
If you don't want to run Visual Studio as administrator then here is the netsh command: netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:8001/ user=YourUserName

After executing the host you must add the reference to your hosted service to be able to test the project that I put in the ZIP, experts-exchange interface didn't allow me to include several "dangerous" files in the ZIP.

Well, if you want to use REST you will need to change the binding to webHttpBinding and the host must be a WebServiceHost, this class is located in System.ServiceModel.Web assembly
