[Mono-list] Service or daemon with Mono?

Hi Jonas,

I found some documentation on remote objects that includes the setup of the server component as a service for windows or linux (including the steps to set it up). This might help you with your question:

Betreff: [Mono-list] Service or daemon with Mono?


What is the recommended way to write a service-like software in Mono?

My first guess would be to use the normal class ServiceBase existing in Mono (and .NET of course). But there seems to be little information on how this works with Mono, and from what I've read it is not considered stable (?).

1. Is it better to just create a normal app, turn on automatic login and run it at login?
2. Is it possible to create a daemon using Mono?
3. Is there any documentation on how to "install" the "service" if developed in Mono using ServiceBase (or any other method)?

In short: I'm looking for a way to build the Linux equivalent for a service using Mono, and install it on a Linux-dist =)

Thanks in advance!
