Quick tip on Service Fabric Remoting service development
Azure Service Fabric needs no introduction. It is our next gen PaaS offering or also called PaaS v2. It’s been used internally for many years, tested and released as SDK for consumption. Some of the well known offerings like Az Sql, Az DocDB, Skype etc runs on Service Fabric. We already see developer community consuming for their production and hearing lot of goodness.
It is free, any one can download the SDK, develop and run from their laptop or own data center or publish to Azure. It works on windows and Linux as well. It has lot of rich features over the previous PaaS offerings (cloud services) so seeing lot of traction from big companies considering for critical application.
This sample is based on this example:-https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/service-fabric-reliable-services-communication-remoting/

For client side/calling method, I do not see set up related information in detailed here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/service-fabric-reliable-services-communication-remoting/. I found, these 3 dll’ s has to be referred at client side project for consuming service. I simply copied from service side sample packages folder to calling side proj folder.
