Dear fellow developers,

if you have used Zyan in your project, please spend a few minutes replying to this thread.
Feel free to post here any details you'd like to share, such as:

  • Name, website, logo of your company
  • Product name, how many users does it have
  • What features of Zyan are used: duplex channel, LINQ support, MEF integration, etc.

Please mention any issues as well so we can focus our efforts to improve Zyan further.
I hope that this thread will help other people to figure out whether they should use Zyan in their own projects.

Alternatively, if you prefer not to share details, you may just click this Ohloh button to confirm
that you are using Zyan in your projects (please note that account is required):

I work at Ultima Businessware, software development company based in Moscow, Russia.
Our flagship product is a large-scale ERP system, and the current development version is based on Zyan Framework.

We are using almost every feature of Zyan including:

  • Duplex TCP connection with custom authentication and session managers
  • Distributed LINQ queries, call interception
  • MEF integration, both client-side and server-side parts
  • Session-bound events and event filters

We also plan to use traffic compression and monitoring once it's available.

I'm developing software for fire departments in Germany.
The software is showing the current status of fire-fighting vehicles.
The software is server client based. Server gets state through a decoder and sends to all clients.
Sorry, I have no website yet.

I'm using following Zyan features:

  • Duplex TCP connection between server and clients
  • IPC connection between udpate service and server 
  • Events (client sends delegates to server. Delegates were invoked by the server)

Furthermore i want to thank Rainbird for his great support.
Many thanks to you, Rainbird.

Hi all, yallie asked if I'd share our experiences of using Zyan with the user base.

We're using the Zyan Framework to connect several parts of our suite of Risk Management products together, to give our users maximum flexibility in deployment.
We've deployed elements locally, across a LAN and even on Amazon AWS (for instance, connecting from UK to Australia) without issue using TCP duplex connections.

Of particular interest to us and to our clients is the ability to communicate encrypted data quickly - vital for our line of business.

Typically we have one or more control applications using duplex TCP to a remote server running our Data Manager. This in turn connects to our Central Logic via IPC. The Central Logic implements a queue and multi-threaded engines thus releasing the Data Manager quickly to prepare the next call.

In summary we use:
  • TCPDuplexClient & Server for inter-network calls
  • A callback registry of clients so we can pass data back and forth between multiple connected clients (and to the correct client!)
  • Encryption for safe data transfer.
  • IPCBinaryClient & Server for calls on the same machine, to keep our logical business processes separate and therefore maximise resources, and to get maximum connection speed.
Trying to use TCP Remoting without the Zyan Framework would never have got off the ground - just glad we came across it.

Also, we have received excellent service and support with even the most inept questions - thanks to you both for this!

Thanks everyone for contributing to this thread!

I'd like to ask posting in English, please.
Here is an automated translation of the last post:
We develop in China invoicing software for the computer sales using Zyan communication framework.
We'd like to expand the functionality which a stabler similar real-time chats. Could you provide some help to us?
Please create a new thread on this forum if you have any questions.

A few days ago I've got this message from Swifter:
I use your framework in my DronePhone GPS Tracker system to transfer GPS position information from my UDP server (which accepts the position data from a Windows Phone mounted on a flying quadcopter) to a Bing map client, where the real-time position of the drone is displayed. So far, it works very well.

I wrote my own UDP stuff, but your software made the TCP server to the WPF map clients very easy.

You can see more info here:

You can see a video of a flight synchronized with the DronePhone Map client here:

It is best watched at full screen, 1080p.

Enjoy, and thanks for the great software!
Awesome stuff! I wish it were open-source :)

we are using Zyan for our Inhouse-Development of an ERP-System. Long time ago we are using a OpenSource ERP, but we have Special Needs and the "old" System wasn´t develop again.

So we start on January 1, 2013 with a new Project. Here some Highlights:
  • Client-Server architecture (Communication with Zyan - TCPDuplex)
  • Full .NET development (WPF - MVVM - Entity Framework) - most of the code is written in VB.NET
  • VPN Optimation (we Transfer only needed Data)
  • Realtime functions for inform Client for updates
  • MEF for a modulbased development and extensibilitiy
  • Only using Standard Projects or open source Projects to do main Goals (ex.: MS SQL / MS Reporting Services, ...)
Now in December will will release our first Version to do the inventure. We plan to Change the ERP complete at end of year 2014

Thank you very much for your good work and helpfull support
