Console Applications and EPiServer, is it possible?

Vote:
 
Hi, I'd like to write a console application that executes on EPiServer. The reason why is that it's a long running job (probably several hours) and I don't want anyone accessing EPiServer in the meantime, so intend to the webapp offline. Is there a guide anywhere to writing console applications that talk to EPiServer (4.61), or can anyone state that it's not possible? Many thanks, Andy

Depending on what you wanna do it should be possible to hock into the episerver api from a console app. Another option could be to develop a scheduled task...to take the webapp offline that you could create a app_offline.htm file in the application directory, and then carry out what ever long running task you wanna performe and at the end remove the app_offline.htm again.
