Release Notes

Generic Host Servie:
Download and extract the files to a folder. Use the msi to install the service. Once installation is complete the service will appear in the Windows Service Control Manager. In the browser goto http://localhost:1400/ServiceHost to test the Host Controller endpoint.

Generic Host Controller VS2010 AddIn
Download and extract the files to a folder. Use the msi to install the AddIn. After install a "Generic Host Controller" menu item will be added to the tools menu in the VS2010 IDE. Use the ServiceHost endpoint when prompted to controll the your WCF Services.

WCF Test Harness
Download and extract the files to a folder. Copy the dlls to the bin directory of your Generic Host Service install. This provides a custom behavior that enables you to test your WCF services directly on the server without having to generate a proxy. A text file in directory shows how to configure your service to use the behavior. Once enabled browsing to the http endpoint of your service and addinng the service interface contract name will bring up a form to test your service.

*NOTE: This only works with services where the service contract is defined on an interface. In the event your service does not have an http endpoint or you want to access the test on a different url add the url where you would like to access the Test Harness for your service to the baseAddress="" attribute of the serviceBehavior
