This sample demonstrates how to discover a service that has the ListenUriMode property set to Unique. When the ListenUriMode property is set to Unique, the ListenUri is ensured to be unique by either setting the port to be unique or for the path to be unique by appending a GUID.
Features on the Service
Features on the Client
This client connects to the service using the correct
Via.Uri by using the Find method. The FindResponse that is returned from the method is then queried for whether it contains a valid ListenUri and whether it is different than
Address.Uri. The appropriate information is then passed to the
InvokeCalculatorService method. In the
InvokeCalculatorService method, the ListenUri was passed in by the caller, then a
ClientViaBehavior with the correct
Via.Uri is added to the client’s endpoint.
To use this sample
Using Visual Studio 2012, open UniqueListenUriMode.sln.
To build the solution, press CTRL+SHIFT+B.
Run the service application, which is generated in the [solution base directory]\service\bin\debug folder.
Run the client application, which is generated in the [solution base directory]\Client\bin\debug folder.
The client locates the running service and writes to the console the metadata published by the service’s endpoint.
