Version 2.1 of Playground and BWS released
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 owin.org) 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 :-)
