Version 2.1 of Playground and BWS released


We released a new version of the BioID Web Service (BWS) and the BioID Playground demo system.

With this version we restructured our service implementation:

We now use a single Azure worker role (something like a Windows Service) to host all our BWS services, i.e. we self-host a WCF service host for the SOAP version of our BioID Web Service and we self-host an OWIN (Open Web Interface for .NET, see host to run the RESTful BWS Extension. This makes our live a bit easier and the services a bit faster. 

The major changes in this release are:

  • All services are self-hosted in a Windows service (worker role).
  • No IIS is used any anymore! This leads to a faster response time and no wake-ups are needed.
  • The unified user interface is not longer part of the BWS Extension. See the BWS Unified User Interface documentation for more information..
  • As usual our algorithms are getting better and faster :-)
