Now that you bring it up, could you explain how the mono-service
implementation works. I've never looked into it.
Is it a daemon ?
I've been given our windows/unix interoperability for
services/eventlog/registry some thought. To allow seemless cross-platform
access (from Windows machine to Linux or vice versa) to these base services,
we have two options:
* either we implement the win32 low-level protocols for services, eventlog
and registry on Linux
* we implement managed daemons for both Windows and Linux, and use either
.NET remoting or web services to access these daemons remotely.
The first option would ofcourse be better, as it would not only allow
(managed) Linux applications to access these base services on a Windows
machine, but it would also allow the native MS tools to access these
services on a Linux system. However, I think this would be a *huge* project
which cannot be realised within a reasonable timeframe.
The second option would not be all that hard to implement. We already have
native win32 and linux support for the registry and eventlog in place, and I
should have a wrapper for the win32 service implementation ready in a few
days or so (if I find enough free time).
For Windows, all we'd need is to write either .NET remoting or web services
wrappers around these API's. For Linux, we also need to implement a Service
Control Manager ourselves (if mono-service doesn't do this already).
These daemons could then be packaged as a Mono Management Pack for Windows /
Linux. This would definitely give Mono more exposure in corporate
I'm just thinking out loud, feel free to bring my feet back on the ground.
