 Posted by ArticlesMaint on 4/14/2011 | Category: WCF Interview questions | Views: 2880


The following steps are followed to do Self-hosting.


Step1:    //Create a URI to serve as the base address
            // Address as well binding

Uri httpUrl = new Uri("http://localhost:8010/MyService/HelloWorld");


Step2: //Create ServiceHost           

 ServiceHost host = new ServiceHost(typeof(ClassLibrary1.HelloWorldService),httpUrl);

Step3: //Add a service endpoint      

host.AddServiceEndpoint(typeof(ClassLibrary1.IHelloWorldService) , new WSHttpBinding(), "");

Step4: //Enable metadata exchange

ServiceMetadataBehavior smb = new ServiceMetadataBehavior();

smb.HttpGetEnabled = true;          
host.Description.Behaviors.Add(smb);


Step5: //Start the Service           

host.Open();

Step6:

Console.WriteLine("Service is host at " + DateTime.Now.ToString());          

Console.WriteLine("Host is running... Press <Enter> key to stop");          
Console.ReadLine();
