HttpHandler To Handle All Kinds Of URL's In Mono Apache/XSP In Order To Build A REST Service?

Apr 2, 2010

I want to develop my own REST service, so I've created an IHttpHandler that is configured with verb="*" and path="*", the the application in ~/MyRESTsrv/ will handle any derived URL.

This approach works good in IIS7 with "integrated mode" and apparently in IIS6 if you map all the extensions to "aspnet_isapi.dll".

Is this possible in Apache/XSP with Mono? Do I have to do something special or it will work out of the box?

Talking To A Rest Service / Call A Rest Service Without Having To Redirect?

Feb 8, 2010

I need to call a Rest service but would like to do so without having to redirect. Here is my dilemma. The Rest service we are trying to integrate offers the option to sign up for a subscription but does not allow us to upgrade an existing subscription. So if a user wants to upgrade an existing subscription we have to first cancel and then have the user sign up for a brand new subscription. I don't know how I can make this so it flows nicely in my code. I ideally I would like to do something like this

User decides to upgrade

Click upgrade button

Existing account is being cancelled, if cancellation was successful

New account is being created

How can I do this with a Rest service? Here is a sample URI/URL

Could anybody give me some ideas how to make this work in an elegant manner. We thought we could keep the old subscription and then just sign the user up for a new subscription for the difference of the money. For example the first subscription would be 2.95 and the second one would be 2.00 which would amount to a subscription of 4.95. I think it is not elegant and the user would see 2 charges on the credit card, weird, I think. Since I don't know much about Rest maybe there is a way that this can be solved.

Could Not Load Type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpHandler' Version Conflict With WCF REST

Jan 6, 2011

I've run into a problem with WCF REST Service. I get:

Could not load type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpHandler' from assembly 'System.ServiceModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.

when running inside of the IIS in an ASP.NET 4.0 AppPool.

The problem seems to occur only if:Running inside of IIS
When ASP.NET Comaptibility is enabled

Running in Cassini - no problem it works properly. Running with ASP.NET compatibility off - no problem it works.

It appears that it's some sort of handler version conflict trying to instantiate the wrong version of the handler that in turn tries to load an older version of System.ServiceModel, but I haven't been able to trace this down.

Anybody seen anything like this before and have any ideas how to track this down further?

I've looked in ApplicationHost.config and the master web.config files for System.ServiceModel and HttpHandler references but no luck.

C# - How To Build URL Of WCF REST Web Services

Oct 26, 2010

I am using the new .NET 4 WCF REST web services. In order to link resources, I'd like to put links in my responses. In ASP.NET I can generate URLs from my routing configuration (e.g. UrlHelper.Action(...))

With WCF REST web services I have an ASP.NET routing configuration plus Uri templates:

[WebGet(UriTemplate = "{id}")]
MyResult Index(string id) {...}

I want to store related URIs in my result objects. How can I construct URLs from my routing configuration + UriTemplates without hardcoding base URLs or other information?

Configure Apache To Host Both A Web Service And A PHP Website

Jan 5, 2011

I am developing an ASP.NET Web Service and a PHP Web site consuming the Web Service. They are meant to be run on different machines. However, only for development purposes, I need to run both on my machine. I cannot use virtual machines.

I would like to know if it is possible to configure IIS Apache to host both my Web Service and my Web site? Or, do I need to host the PHP site using Apache?

I am using

IIS 7.5 Apache HTTP Server 2.2 (NOTE: I have nothing against Apache. In fact, so far I like it more than IIS, however, I would rather not have two Web server applications installed in the same machine.)m PHP 5.3.4
.NET Framework 2.0 3.0 or 3.5 (whichever comes with Visual Studio 2008)mod_aspdotnet for Apache 2.2

Membership / Authorization Over A REST Service?

Mar 23, 2011

I'm investigating creating a WCF REST service for an existing application to be consumed by various clients including Windows Phone 7, Android, iPhone apps etc.Creating a simple WCF REST service and consuming it from the above platforms is not a problem and works really well. What I am struggling to get my head around is authorization.The application uses the Membership provider to provide authentication and authorization and I'm comfortable in using that API from the REST service.

How do I secure my REST service so that the first call has to be to authenticate (passing the username and password) and following calls know who is 'logged in'. I'm guessing the authenticate method will have to pass back some sort of token to be used in subsequent calls identifying the caller. Is this secure enough as the whole site / service is over SSL?

WCF REST Service AspCompatibilityMode Not Working In IIS?

Dec 3, 2010

Trying to deploy a wcf rest service inside of an web application. Works wonderfully when deploying to test server in visual studio, however when i deploy to iis 6 I get nothing. It is as if my service is not there at all.

here is my web config under system.service model:

<serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />

and im registering a route in the global.cs

routes.Add(new ServiceRoute("Service", new WebServiceHostFactory3(), typeof(WcfJQueryService)));

my web service class is decorated with:

[AspNetCompatibilityRequirements(RequirementsMode = AspNetCompatibilityRequirementsMode.Required)]

I am using windows authentication if that matters in this case.

WCF Rest Web Service Working On Localhost But Not On Host?

Mar 29, 2011

I made a simple WCF web-service inside an website.

The web-service is hosted by IIS and works fine on localhost, ie when accessing for exemple to
[URL] I get the correct "Hello World" response as expected.

But accessing to it by my computer hostname [URL] gets me an error 404 response. This is particularly confusing as the remaining of the site (mainly aspx pages) is accessible without any problem from both ways.

Consuming A WCF REST Service From Android Is Very Slow?

Aug 31, 2010

I have a WCF REST service built with C# and it returns an image as part of a CPU intensive operation. The client is running on Android (Java) By default, it will return a text JSON object that looks something like this:


Those are they bytes of the image. Fine. However, all the solutions for decoding this JSON are intolerably slow. I've tried Gson, Jackson, and the built-in Android JSONObject class. I have no idea why they are so slow.

As an alternative solution, I have my REST service return a GUID, and then that GUID can be used by the Android client to go to a regular URL that serves up the image as a regular binary stream, via an MVC controller.

This works well, and it fast, and is pretty easy to handle on the Android side. However, it does feel like a bit of kludge and kind of a violation of the REST design principles. Am I missing something here? Is there a better way to do this?

Linq2Xml Parse Output From REST Web Service?

Jan 3, 2011

I am attempting to parse the XML output from a REST web service and have been pointed in the direction of using Linq2Xml to query the XML for the attributes that I am after. The XML output is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"standalone="yes" ?>
<Response Status="OK">
<Item Name="NumberZones">2</Item>


The returned datatable is empty, I have confirmed that result does have the XML assigned, and result.value is the string version of the XML file (200Westralia0{81C56183-31DA-45C2-90C3-81609F01B38B}Lounge10001{eac0109e-0090-a992-7fba-dc67fe29e6e7})Is anyone able to provide assistance in how I can read from the REST XML example above the name (ZoneName%) and the attribute value (Westralia and Lounge)?

Patterns For A Data File Based WCF REST Web Service?

Mar 15, 2011

We have an existing, proprietary data processing application that runs on one of our servers and we wish to expose it as a web service for our clients to submit jobs remotely. In essence, the system takes a set of configuration parameters and one or more data files (the number of files depends on the particular configuration template, but the normal config is 2 files). The application then takes the input files, processes them, and outputs a single result data file (all files are delimited text / CSV or tab).

We want to now expose this process as a service. Based on our current setup and existing platforms, we are fairly confident that we want to go with WCF 4.0 as the framework and likely REST for the service format, though a SOAP implementation may be required at some point.

Although I am doing a lot of reading on SOA, WCF and REST, I am interested in other thoughts on how to model this service. In particular, the one-to-many relationship of job to required files for input. It seems pretty trivial to model a "job" in REST with the standard CRUD commands. However, the predefined "job type" parameter defines the number of files that must be included. A job type of "A" might call for two input files, while "B" requires 3 before the job can run.

Given that, what is best way to model the job? Do I include the multiple files in the initial creation of the job? Do I create a job and then have an "addFile" method where by I can then upload the necessary number of files?

The jobs will then have to run asynchronously because they can take time. Once complete, is it best to then just have a status field in the job object and require the client to regularly query the system for job status, or perhaps have the client provide a URL to "ping" when the job is complete?
