ServiceWire

Breaking Changes in version 4.0.1

  1. Switched ServiceWire (and ServiceMq) to Newtonsoft.Json for serialization. Eliminates use of BinaryFormatter and its required Serializable attribute. Also eliminates ServiceStack.Text 3 dependency which has problems serializing structs.

  2. Relaxed assembly version matching to allow additive changes without breaking the client or requiring an immediate client update.

  3. Strong name added to allow the library to be used by strong named applications and libraries.

  4. Added .NET 3.5 support to allow legacy applications to use the library. This adds a Framework specific dependency on TaskParallelLibrary 1.0.2856.0.

  5. For the .NET 4.0 and 3.5 versions, changed to "Client Profile" for the target framework.

  6. Removed dependency on System.Numerics in order to support .NET 3.5 and introduced ZkBigInt class taken from Scott Garland's BigInteger class. See license text for full attribution.

A Lightweight Services Library for .NET.

ServiceWire is a very fast and light weight services host and dynamic client library that simplifies the development and use of high performance remote procedure call (RPC) communication between .NET processes over Named Pipes or TCP/IP.

Find "how to use" examples in the tests code. ServiceWire documentation is available on the wiki.

Important

ServiceWire's dynamically generated proxy will NOT run as x86 on an x64 system. This ususally occurs when you use Visual Studio to create a console application with the default "prefer x86" in project properties selected. Just be sure to choose AnyCPU or the specific target (x86 or x64) so that you do not run 32bit in WOW on an x64 machine.

Get It on Nuget

Using the library is easy.

  1. Code your interface

  2. Code your implementation

  3. Host the implementation

  4. Use dynamic proxy of your interface on the client side

This unique library supports:

  • TCP and NamedPipes protocols

  • ByRef (out and ref) parameters (except for non-primitive value types)

  • Dynamic client proxy generation from service interface

  • Very fast serialization of most native types and arrays of those types

  • Multiple service interface hosting on the same endpoint

  • Aspect oriented interception with pre-, post- and exception handling cross cutting

  • Hosting of single service implementation singleton on multiple endpoints and protocols

  • Protocol, serialization and execution strategy extension

Portions of this library are a derivative of RemotingLite.
