CAD remote API
« on: May 02, 2016, 08:58:36 AM »
Has anybody experience of creating of CAD remote API (the wrapper for usual API)? If "yes", then what impressions did you have? What difficulties arose?

I did the simple remote operations like the drawing resaving, purging, auditing, proxy exploding and removing (it works fine), but it is not the same like the real remote API. I did it through WCF. I think it is possible to create remote API (through WCF also)... WCF allows to concentrate attention on business logic.

Remote API would allow transparently for the user to switch API on the remote machine (where real variants of API are located). For example, to switch to Teigha .Net Classic API instead of AutoCAD .Net API. On the client machine the source code at this case wouldn't require change.
