I need to write an application in c#, wich should run in background and
be able to shut down gracefully when required.
The best solution would be to use the System.ServiceProcess namespace,
but this namespace is not implemented in mono. I know that there were
some discussion about this topic in summer 2003, but since i found
nothing. Is there something new in this direction?
The other way (not so nice, but would also do the job) would be the
catching of posix signals (SIGINT, SIGTERM...) but i have no idea how to
do thin in an mono application.
The last solution is to use some selfmade communication mechnism, to
comunicate with the process and initiate the shutdow - maybe using
remoting or some simpler mechanism.
Can someone give me some infos or ideas for the solution?
