The last few days I’ve had an opportunity to create two Windows services for the product I’m working on. I was surprised at how easy .NET makes these things. The hardest part was figuring out how to set the description that shows up in the Services menu. The rest was just tricky business rules type stuff. Sadly, I didn’t figure out a way to work MSMQ into the picture. Instead, I had to use SQL Server as a message queue since the stored procedures had to send the messages at various insertion points.
Man, I wish I could just tell you what I was working on so I could actually provide more detail. All in due time, Mr. Brown. All in due time.
