Hosting Tutorials Overview

Services run within an environment known as a Decentralized Software Services (DSS) node, DSS node. A DSS node is a hosting environment that provides support for services to be created and managed until they are deleted or the DSS node is stopped. A DSS node can either be started as a stand-alone application using the DSS Host Tool (DssHost.exe) or as part of another application using the DSS environment static class. The hosting tutorials provide an introduction for how to host a DSS node within other applications.
