Asian Options Service
This sample demonstrates how to create a WCF service that can run on Windows Azure compute nodes and how to create a client Excel application that starts a WCF service job.
The Asian Options sample is a solution containing a WCF service designed to run as a Windows HPC SOA application, a Microsoft Excel workbook that consumes the service, and a utility client application for creating and closing sessions. This sample demonstrates how to build, deploy, and execute an HPC SOA application that can run in Windows Azure and how to consume this type of application from a Microsoft Excel workbook.
The Microsoft Excel workbook demonstrates the interactive and durable session types of the HPC SOA application, which are used to call a WCF service that is deployed to the HPC cluster, whether it resides in an on-premises node or in a Windows Azure node.
Though this sample was originally developed for Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP1, it has been verified to run under Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP2. Despite this, the sample should preferably be run under Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP2.
This sample demonstrates the following:
