I m trying to avoid IIS due to another app i m using, which doenst work with IIS Threads. That s why asking. so i d like to manage my own AppDomain and threadpool rather than IIS.
Can i seperate hosting of WCF from IIS?
When you self-host, you are using no a shred of IIS at all. You don't need IIS on that machine - nothing.
WCF self-hosting will require the
http.sys driver for its http-based communication - but that's all there is. There is absolutely no trace of IIS needed - none, zip, nada.
Self-hosting WCF also allows you to pick your own service addresses and use whatever suits your needs - there's no virtual directory and no *.svc file to be dealt with.
