I'm running a WCF service that retrieves generic content so that non-Sitefinity sites can connect to the service to get content. This way, the applications themselves do not need the SF dlls and the bloated web.config entries for SF.
This works...most of the time. However, every once in awhile I will run into an issue where I get the error below. The error doesn't make sense, because the provider is registered and the service working most of the time is proof of that.
System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[System.ServiceModel.ExceptionDetail, System.ServiceModel, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]]: Missing provider: Wiki
The issue seems to occur when I've had my browser open on the site for an extended period of time and a local web process running (.NET web site), and then come back and perform an operation that requires the service to be hit. If I close my browser and restart my local my local website, it works again.
We are getting ready to use this service in our QA environment, so we need to get this cleared up as soon as possible. If you have any suggestions as to how we could resolve this issue, please let me know.
