.NET Remoting and Web Services: A Lightweight Bridge between the .NET

By: Bert Vanhooff, Davy Preuveneers, Yolande Berbers

Abstract

Microsoft .NET Compact Framework offers a development platform for mobile applications but is lacking support for .NET Remoting, which is the .NET middleware infrastructure for inter-application communication. The current version of the .NET Compact Framework (1.0, SP2) does support communication using web services. Unfortunately, this support cannot be used in its current form to seamlessly integrate with an existing .NET Remoting application. In this paper, we propose an approach that leverages the present support for web services and augments it to make such integration possible. Our solution dynamically maps back and forth between .NET Remoting and web service messages without needing to alter the existing Remoting applications.
