Managing an Application

AppFabric provides a comprehensive set of user interface screens and APIs for managing WCF- and WF-based applications. The management UI is built into the IIS Manager to provide a single location for all application management tasks. The management API consists of Windows PowerShell cmdlets for AppFabric that give you the flexibility of generating scripts to manage applications or to invoke cmdlets interactively in the Windows PowerShell console.

This section provides detailed procedural topics covering all application management features. Consult these topics to understand how to accomplish specific management tasks.

This section also provides an overview of the usage of the management UI and APIs (Using AppFabric Management Tools Overview). Consult these topics to familiarize yourself with the features and capabilities of the AppFabric UI and cmdlets, and to understand their basic usage.
