I am busy developing kind of a client/server application.
For me it is is really important that the server and the client notice if the one or the other has died, has a broken connection or is shutdown.
Is this possible with a WCF-service ?
(I am still thinking that a collection of sockets it the best option for me, but have not learned enough of WCF-service's)
sneeze I am doing a client-server application these days.
Server - a WCF service
(it will be hosted on the local IIS web server [ideally - on a remote host] ), which will manage the data in the database (here I will apply the Entity Framework code first)
Client - a WPF application,
where a registered user can enter certain data to DB, or receive them (in one word CRUD).
All this I will post on GitHub for general review.
Perhaps this will help you understand the distributed API - WCF
