Windows Communication Foundation Activation Components

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Activation Components use Windows Process Activation Service to call applications remotely over a network by using protocols such as HTTP, Message Queuing, TCP, and named pipes. Windows Communication Foundation Activation Components allows applications to start and stop dynamically in response to incoming work items, resulting in application hosting that is more robust, manageable, and efficient.

   HTTP Activation

HTTP Activation supports process activation by using HTTP. Applications that use HTTP Activation can start and stop dynamically in response to work items transmitted over the network by using HTTP.

   Non-HTTP Activation

Non-HTTP Activation supports process activation by using either Message Queuing, TCP, or named pipes. Applications that use Non-HTTP Activation can start and stop dynamically in response to work items transmitted over the network by using either Message Queuing, TCP, or named pipes.
