Parsing XML Data Feeds with a Windows Service
Description

The term "Windows service" was officially introduced with the release of the .NET platform. It replaces the older "NT service" term you may have heard in the past. A Windows service is quite useful in situations where you need a program to run for long time periods and automatically start up when a computer is rebooted (even if a user has not logged into the system).

The Windows service that you’ll be introduced to in this sample application serves the purpose of watching a specific folder named xmlFeeds for XML documents that are dropped into the folder (through FTP, copy/paste, XCopy, etc.). The task of watching the folder is handled by the FileSystemWatcher class in the System.IO namespace. When XML files are dropped into the folder, the FileSystemWatcher instantiates a class named SQLGenerator that utilizes the XmlTextReader to parse the XML data and insert it into a database.
