WS-Sudoku for WinFX

Posted by Gaurav Khanna on May 24, 2006

Sometime back, I had authored WS-Sudoku that was a game of Sudoku built using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to illustrate multi-player gaming using callbacks over WSDualHttpBinding.

This was subsequently modified by the WCF Team to leverage the three pillars of WinFX: WPF, WCF and WWF. It has been made available for download, with its source code, for you to see the richness of WinFX as a developer platform.

Download it from here.

The game uses WSDualHttpBinding and uses callback contracts, in a publisher-subscriber model, for notifying all connected players about the moves made by other players. As players join or exit the game, the notifications are sent in real time to other players in the game. It has been built using WCF November CTP. You would require the following components to be installed on your machine:

Below is a screen shot of the game:

Finally, it can be installed using ClickOnce so that it will auto-update itself when updated for more features.
