This application example shows how to host a web-service in a WindowsForms application without IIS, using another web server: Cassini.

Here some links about hosting web services out of IIS:
- ApplicationHost solution: http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/04/12/ServiceStation/
- Web Services Enhancements (WSE) solution: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa529311.aspx
- WCF solution: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb332338.aspx

Here an evolution of Cassini web server, "UltiDev Cassini Web Server":

Important: remember to deploy Cassini.dll from "Cassini Library" in GAC.
