IIS configuration using managed code

It's already pretty simple to do using System.DirectoryServices (connecting to the IIS configuration using ADSI), it will become easier in the near future in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework using the metabase.dll assembly (namespace Microsoft.Iis.Metabase). Using classes such as ApplicationDomain, Website, Binding, WebDirectory, WebExtension, etc it's possible to manage/modify every aspect of the IIS metabase. You can find the beta information on http://msdn2.microsoft.com/library/0k32eta8.aspx. Looks promising and it simplifies this kind of development dramatically. I love it :-)Del.icio.us | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks

Hm, I love it too!!! (especially because I wrote an IIS6 web control panel using the old .NET 1.1 techniques...)

Do you know of any samples or articles about this? If not, maybe a good idea for you to write something more in-depth (with sourcecode) about it! :-)

Did you already write some code using these new classes?
Do you mind sharing it? (or maybe writing a new blog entry about it ;-))
