WCF+Adobe Flash

Yevgeniy

Hi, I'm new to WCF ,coming with asp.net background and would
appreciate help with WCF usage guidelines for fallowing :
My challenge is to design and build web based system on 2
technologies :
Clients are adobe Flash applications
And server side implemented with WCF
Main limitation is that I cant use .net based wcf clients, my consumer
is flash app that send-recieves soap messages, please share your
thoughts :
1) what is better option for wcf services hosting ? IIS+ASMX / windows
service ?
2) how WCF can help to implement clients session ? basically what I
need is that only authenticated clients can access wcf services.
(Asp.net way is to create authentication cookie and validate that
cookie automatically on each page load)
3) how can enforce each wcf request in client session to be processed
in order of arrival

thanks much for any help

If you want additional logging and more flexible control over WCF Windows
service can be an option.

WCF supports authentication
( http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733775.aspx )

WCF service will process SOAP requests from the client in order of arrival.

hi Vadim, thanks for response.
maybe i need to be more specific with my questions :
1) from performance point of view and authentication/authorisation
support, witch hosting option is better for services exposed for web
clients
2) when service consumer is flash client, how authorisation could be
implemented ( for example implementing some Login function that will
create a token and pass it to client and client will send it with
every service call via SOAP headers)

Hello, Yevgeniy!

1. IIS hosting model provides fail protection, activation etc.
However, if you need your service up and running before the first
request comes in - IIS won't suit you.
If only HTTP endpoints will be used performance can be litterally equal,
since both IIS and self-hosted service use http.sys.

2. Good description of WCF security is given here

Hi Yevgeniy,

I'm trying to use wcf with flash but get 'Unable to connect to endpoint error'.

Is wcf not compatible with flash?

Thanks,

EricTile

hi Eric,
we successfully used Flax clients with WCF (basicHTTPBinding)
can you access same service from native client ? generate C# client
with visual studio and see if it works
it seems like server side problem according to your error
