we have now published updated guidance at for Azure SDK versions 1.5 and later.

This whitepaper provides details on how to host WCF services with Windows Azure Platform AppFabric Service Bus endpoints in IIS 7.5 which is available on the Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 platforms. Windows® Azure™ platform AppFabric provides common building blocks required by .NET applications when extending their functionality to the cloud, and specifically, the Windows Azure platform. We introduce the technical challenges while hosting WCF services on IIS that have a Service Bus endpoint. We then explain how by leveraging IIS 7.5 features we can successfully host WCF services in IIS & the caveats. The remainder of the paper is then divided in the following sections:
- Hosting WCF Services with Service Bus bindings in IIS 7.5: It details what steps are needed to host a WCF service with service bus endpoints.
- Service Bus endpoint settings in 4.0: This section describes changes needed for Dublin integration. It’s also a pre-requisite if you want to use Option 2: ASP.NET 4.0 Auto-start.
- Windows Server AppFabric ‘Dublin’ integration: This section lists additional steps that need to be taken to take benefit of Dublin IIS features for WCF service with service bus endpoints. Users will be able to leverage Windows® Server AppFabric ‘Dublin’ functionality to configure & monitor method invocations for the Service Bus endpoints.
