      This application is an end-to-end sample application for Windows Azure and Microsoft cloud technologies. It is a service-oriented application based on the .NET Framework 4.0, including ASP.NET and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). It illustrates many of the .NET enterprise development technologies that can be used for building highly scalable, "cloud-connected" applications. The application demonstrates a single code base that works on traditional servers, Hyper-V private clouds, and in the Windows Azure public cloud, including hybrid cloud scenarios.
      The download includes the automated setup for the .NET StockTrader and the Configuration Service, with associated technical documents that explain how to run and reconfigure the .NET StockTrader service-oriented application. Additional documentation in the download provides the steps necessary to implement the Configuration Service 5.5 in your own applications and services for central configuration management; distributed caching; load-balancing and failover across clustered service nodes. The sample includes:

      · .NET StockTrader 6.0 application.

      Make sure you have installed the .NET Framework 4 runtime, available for free on MSDN. Also, please make sure you have installed IIS 6 (XP/Windows Server 2003) or IIS 7 (Vista/Windows 7/Windows Server 2008), as setup will create virtual directories for you. The IIS Web Server can be installed via Control Panel/Add Remove Windows Components. Failure to install IIS first will result in failure of this setup program.
