Windows Azure Thumbnails Sample

The Windows Azure Thumbnails sample is a hosted service that shows a web role, a worker role, and a queue. The web role provides a front-end application to upload images and adds a work item to a queue. The worker role retrieves the work item and creates thumbnails in a folder.

  • Running Error of this example

    • Hello, I'm learning azure by debugging this example, but I encountered a problem.
      I compiled this example using vs2010 and Windows azure tools 2.1.
      While running, it crashed and gave an error hinted with “Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime.RoleEnvironmentException”.
      It seemed to break at the code of  " var storageAccount = CloudStorageAccount.Parse(RoleEnvironment.GetConfigurationSettingValue("DataConnectionString"));".

  • Can this b done with Direct2D or WPF

    • This example uses System.Drawing which can have unexpected behaviour on Azure. i.e. Ihave had several Azure apps work great locally that blow up on Azure when you start doing complex things as System.Drawing is not supported on Servers. The documentation for System.Drawing even points this out. Is it possible to instead use Direct2D via WPF or SharpDX/SlimDX in Azure as these are thread safe and will likely be much faster as well?
  • How could we handle a message from processing by more than worker role instances?

    • Is it possible to handle or process a message from queue by two or more worker role instances (if we have more than one instance of worker role)? How could we handle such type scenarios? or it should not be happen and every thing will take care of Windows Azure so no need to think over it.
