Managed Code Web Server for Windows Mobile
Posted by Mike Temporale in "Smartphone Developer" @ 08:30 AM
"Windows CE ships with a web server component, but I figured for experimentation what I require is a simple managed code Web Server that lets me deliver content from a .Net Compact Framework application hence giving me a foundation to host web-services. My web server needs to be fast, solid and capable of being easily extended. What I didn't need to worry about too much was coping with heavy loading as I envisage its just going to be used 'occasionally' by a small number of clients. So by adapting the socket server sample that ship with the .Net MicroFramework I was able to produce the following multi-threaded light weight web server."
Ok, so this isn't for everyone. In fact, it's not for very many people at all. There are a lot of possibilities available when you're running a web server on a Windows Mobile device. Given some time, we could see applications built from it. If you want to run a mobile web server, Richard Jones has posted the source code along with a lot more details on his blog.
