WCFStorm Host 2.0

Have you already decided to host your own WCF Services instead of hosting in IIS? Do you have several services and find it a challenge to manage it all? Would you like have them all in one place? Would you like to enable tracing and not worry about the size of the trace log?

WCFStormHost lets you accomplish all these. It provides a graphical front-end for managing (Stop/Start/Terminate) WCF Service host processes. It also provides a pluggable framework for adding custom WCF behaviours to services.
