I am using DevForce 6.1.5.
I have a 2-Tier application (Windows Service) that performs updates in the backend directly to database.
I now want this 2-Tier app to login to a remote BOS to perform just some specific tasks via existing RPC methods.
The following link show how to use ServiceKeys to connect to multiple BOS:
However, I am not sure about the following config. The 2-Tier app will connect to its own local (in-process) BOS because this 2-Tier config does not set <clientSettings isDistributed="true" />
<ideablade.configuration version="6.00" xmlns="http://schemas.ideablade.com/2010/IdeaBladeConfig">
<objectServer remoteBaseURL="http://localhost" serverPort="9010" serviceName="LocalEntityService"/>
<serviceKey name="remoteBOS" remoteBaseURL="http://localhost" serviceName="EntityService" serverPort="9009" />
I know one can resort to writing own WCF.
The question is how can I use DevForce to simplify this by enabling an existing 2-Tier app to call the remote BOS specifically?
