Creating Windows service and Linux daemon with the same code base in .NET
Cross-platform service with C# and .NET Framework
0
Few months back I wrote an article on how to create Linux daemon in .NET Core using generic host class introduced in 2.1 version of .NET Core. This code works just great on Linux OS when configured as a daemon in systemd and provides more less same concept you would have with Windows Service written in .NET Framework 4.x. The code works just fine on both Windows and Linux hosts, but because it is compiled as a Console Application, you do not really get to run it on your Windows machine as a Service... read more

Advanced versioning in ASP.NET Core Web API
Different approaches in ASP.NET Core Web API versioning
0
Some time ago I wrote an article about ASP.NET Core Web API versioning which describes route based Web API endpoint versioning. I love route versioning and to me it is the best way of versioning because it is pretty straight, but there are situations where this kind of versioning is not suitable. On nuget.org you can find Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc.Versioning package which gives you more options on how you can version your Web API endpoints... read more

An easier way to debug and develop Windows Services
 
0
Developing Windows Service might a a real headache since you do not have any visual part to see the output. Even if you want to rely on Visual Studio debugger you need to install the service, stop it (if already running), deploy, start the service from Windows MMC and finally hook up Visual Studio to the running service process. Whooh, a lot of things to be done just to start debugging and you have to do it every time you want to start your debugging session (of course not including install every time obviously). ... read more

However idea of executing tasks in a single Windows Service is very useful if you need to execute task in a short time span plus you have a full control including logging and other fine grained customization in case you write the task in your code. ... read more

Storing objects in the message queue (MSMQ) is based on the serialization of the object instance using some of the serializes, basically any class the implements IMessageFormatter. Most commonly used ones are BinaryMessageFormatter and XmlMessageFormatter. I prefer XmlMessageFormatter over BinaryMessageFormatter, mostly because messages are stored in a readable format inside the queue, so in case something goes wrong you can direly check the content of the message using built Computer Management MMC (Microsoft management console) in the. ... read more

When having a long running loop which you are not sure when it is going to end you will probably have to create a loop in a separate loop and on every iterration you will check whether some condition is true and exit the loop. Let's say you want to execute some piece of code after some specific time, let's say after one minute or everyday at specific time (common scenario in windows services).
