[Mono-list] WCF service using JSON over Ajax possible on mono?

Hi Olli,

The biggest problem I had was getting the Web.config set up properly.
For each service you need to define an endpoint, a service behavior, and
an endpoint behavior -- .NET does a lot of this automatically so it can
be very confusing why your service doesn't work.

Here's a trivial WCF service that runs on Mono:


WCF works well!  You can perform AJAX requests, you can deserialize a
request to an object, and serialize a POCO by specifying it as the
return type of your WCF method -- it's all good.

One issue I had is that UriTemplates of the form:


don't seem to work -- at least on Ubuntu, Mono 3.2.8.  Perhaps there's
additional behavior that needs to be specified.  I'll revisit the issue

Good luck!  I've struggled with this for some time so I'm happy to
help any way I can.

Hello list,

I've been working on a wcf service to be run on mono on a CentOS 6.5
platform. Can the current mono support a wcf service that communicates JSON
over Ajax calls from a html5 web client? I can't seem to find any examples
of someone being able to build such a system on a mono environment. I
wonder if I need to add something extra compared to the plentiful online
examples that are written for Windows platform?
