WCF on demand protocol switching POC

WCF offers the ABC (address, binding, contract) to development and operations but what about the client? I’ve created a POC to let the client change the Address and Binding used for hosting a service. Source at the end of this post.


The idea is to self-host a management service and start a task for hosting other services on demand. When the ChangeSetup operation is called on the management service the task is stopped and a new task is started for the new Address and Binding setup. The Contract stays the same.

Problems are

  • the solution is not fit for multi-user,
  • incorrect parameters crash the service,
  • security?

Remember this is a Proof Of Concept and not meant for production. Use at your own risk!

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
