Importing WCF services through registry

Sep 7, 2008 at 8:34 PM
Im curious to know if the MEF team has considered something like a UDDIPartCatalog or similar for importing services from an enterprise repository. Im not quite sure how specifying Exports would work but this scenario is very interesting to me.

We haven't. But MEF in itself won't stop you from doing this. MEF Catalogs can go against any source you choose. The Resolver talks to the catalog and expects back parts definitions. As long as you can create those you are golden. Depending on the implementation though you might have to implement further constructs like custom Composable Part Definitions and Parts themselves. This would not be a trivial effort, but not monumental either.
