Architecture :: WCF Service Be Used To Receive Data As Needed From A Remote Sender Or Service?

Feb 25, 2011

I am not sure which approach I should use. I have a web application that needs to get/receive data from a third party application that is in a secure remote network. The data needs to be secure during transport. The data layers cannot be exposed and the databases will not talk to each other. The data will be received from remote application on demand, or will get at scheduled intervals.

I have looked at WCF, but not sure if this will work. Can a WCF service be used to receive data as needed from a remote sender or service? Is this a secure way of doing it? I have also looked at SFTP using some XML/XSLT, but I don't think this is the right way to go. In addition, some data may be transported from my web application to the remote application (mostly reports at first). What protocols are used to transfer data between HIPAA compliant applications?

Architecture :: DAL As Web Service - Adding A Service Reference To Project And Then Using The EF4 Context And Writing LINQ Queries Against The DB?

Feb 10, 2011

I'm currently trying to work out the best way to build this web application, which will then be intergrated on other systems, such as WinForms, Intranets etc.

We hope to include the usual layers i.e. DAL, BLL, BOL and UI but I have been experimenting with Entity Framework 4 and WCF Data Services and managed to get something in place where I was using WCF as a gateway to EF4.

i.e. Adding a Service Reference to my project and then using the EF4 context and writing LINQ queries against the DB


Now with the current setup I would still need to write a DAL Class Library, that interacts with the Data Service, because as I said WCF Data Services only seems to be a gateway, I can't see where to put the code (above) in the Data Service and then how I could these methods.

My questions are: 1. How do I develop a WCF Data Service in such a way to allow this behaviour - I know how I could do it using ASMX web service, something like [Code]....

2. If I am to use WCF Data Services, how is serialization handled (if at all) - again I know how to do something in ASMX web services

3. Again, If I am to use WCF, how do I add Security and only allow my applications to access the web service - for obvious reasons

4. Would it be possible / logical to also include the Business Logic Layer into the web service?

C# - Building A Email Sender Service

Mar 28, 2011

I have a couple of web applications which all utilize sending emails whether it be by contact form, or some kind of notification updates etc. The problem I have found is that there isn't really any way to track the emails which are being sent from the web applications, so I've come up with a possible solution: It's pretty straight forward really - instead of having each web application sending the emails themselves I would like to unify the process by creating a central Email Sender Service.

In basic terms, each application would just create a row in a 'Outbound Emails' table on the database with To,From,Subject,Content data. The Email Sender Service (Win Service) would then pick the emails from the outbox, send them and then mark as sent.

Even though I would store 'basic email' information (to,from,subject,content) in the database, what I would really like to do is also store the 'MailMessage' object itself so that the Email Sender Service could then de-serialize the original MailMessage as this would allow any application to fully customize the email. Are there any problems with using the MailMessage object in this way? Update: Another objective, is to store a log of emails that have been sent - hence the reason for using a database.

Receive Xml File As A Parameter To A .net Web Service

Feb 8, 2010

My company is currently looking into bringing a new piece of third party software in for online ordering. The software does not handle pricing so they are requesting the pricing information from a web service. Their software is passing an XML file as a parameter, and expecting an XML file as a response. I would think that returning an XML file would be pretty straight forward, but I cannot think of a way to receive an XML file as a parameter.

I'm trying to receive a Client Certificate in a Web Service and having some problems.



The certificate seems to be correclty loading and added to the client.

The client connects to the server with HTTPS.



cert.IsPresent is false and all certificate fields are empty.

IIS is configured to Accept Client Certificates.

Reproduced in two environments:

- Windows 7 x64, IIS 7, VS 2008, .NET 3.5
- XP x86, IIS 5, VS 2008, .NET 3.5

Always in the Web Service the Client Certificate is not proesent. I haven't been able to find any other configuration I should do.

C# - Web Service Receive HTTP POST Request (500) Internal Server Error?

Nov 15, 2010

I am currently writing a C# web service which has several methods, one of which has to receive HTTP POST requests. The first thing i have done is alter the web.config file in the web service project as below.


But when i run this i get "The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error". If i remove the parameter, by removing the stringbuilder and byte code, as well as having no parameter in the web service, it works. So it is obviously a problem with the parameters. I actually want to send more data, and was using a string[] parameter in the web service, but this also failed.

Architecture :: How To Design A Centralized Business Or Service Authentication Architecture

Sep 22, 2010

i want to create a centralised business or Service authendication architecture in .net. for example, we have a clients like c1, c2, c3, c4, ... etc. everybody logins seperatly as well as grouply. ie, if client "C1" logins [with login authentication] he can access c2 , c3, c4 also without login authendication. So its like a google. if we enters gmail account, we can access orkut, picasa like that.. i need the cetralised architecture.

And, client "c1" seperately asks seperately how will be the authendication architecture.

so give me the single solution for both these two scenarios. how will be the architecture for these two and how is the Data Base (Login) Structure.

Architecture :: Create architecture design For WCF Service?

Aug 10, 2010

I am try to create architecture design for WCF service.

We have WCF service that we have to expose to third party so then can request with xml and get back xml response.

The wcf service should do the following:

- Accept the request call with xml

- Check xml against the schema

- Parse the xml

- Authenticate the incoming xml by username and password that will be in xml

- Send back the response

If anybody can let me know what kind of design I can use or is there any pattern available that I can take it and then extend it as per my requirement.

Accessing Remote Files From Web Service?

Jul 15, 2010

My web service needs to open some files located on a remote computer.

From Windows I can do the authentication so I can see those files using the File Explorer.

If I try to open the files from my Web Service while it's running using Visual Studio (ASP.NET Development Server) it also works.

However, if I do everything from IIS it doesn't.In order to find out where is the problem what I did was to run a network sniffer and I found out that when using IIS, the system will try to use the account 'ASPNET' to login into those remote computers which will obviously fail.

However this doesn't happen if I run from the IDE (Using the ASP.NET Development Server)I found out that if I use Impersonation for accessing this it will work, the problem is I need to have the same account names on the computer running IIS so I would rather not to do that.

Why is it working from the ASP.NET Development Server and not from IIS? Is there a way to give full access to the ASPNET account?

C# - How To Set Up A Windows Service To Listen To Events On A Remote Machine

I have a web app and a windows service running on separate machines. How can i enable the windows service subscribe/listen to events raised by the app on the remote machine? What methods can i use?n example of events that can be raised on the app is a user uploading a file. Once the upload has completed the windows service should be notified so it can do some work. It seems that there needs to be a layer in between and windows service, possibly another windows service or WCF app? Or plain old polling through a shared database containing the state?

Unable to connect to the remote server

The exception infomation is below:

A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable network

Here is my code:

WebImageSVC webSvc = new WebImageSVC();
webSvc.Url = ConfigManager.WebSvcAddress;
webSvc.Proxy = null;
webSvc.CanUpload(0, "");

I try many methods, like turn off the firewall and anti-virus software, set the web services proxy property to null. but still cannot solve this issue.

Diagnose A Failure In The Membership Service On Remote Site?

Apr 17, 2010

Yesterday I added a custom MembershipProvider to an ASP.NET web application, but when I deployed the application to its remote host server, it failed. I know I had the login info correct, and I also know that for nearly any exception in the login process, the Login control displays the standard error message, "Your login failed", so I assume something is wrong in the code/config.

What can I do to diagnose what is wrong on the server?

BTW: This weekend I only have FTP access to the server, so no event log, and CustomErrors is already set to Off.

THE END: I was an idiot, and using the wrong query window to check if the my login actually existed on the server.
