What is SelfService?
CapeSoft SelfService allows your Clarion 6 (and up) applications to be run as
Services in Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 or Windows Vista.
What do Services offer you?
One of the great features of
Services is that they don't require a user to be logged in, in
order to run. Services can automatically start on boot up.
Services also do not shut down when a user logs off or switches user, so your
application is always running.
What sort of applications are
suitable for being run as a Service?
Any of your applications that
behave like a server are ideal candidates for
being run as a Service. This would include a
whole host of possibilities with NetTalk
applications, or any application that you would
like to be "always running". Examples would
web, ftp or email polling
control applications like air conditioning
servers, server components in client/server applications.
How easy is it to make my
application run as a Service?
With SelfService you are able
to convert your existing applications into services

considerations and tips. These serve as
guidelines to help you design and deploy
effective and powerful services. To utilize more
