I have old school web service and it is configured to impersonate the caller. Works with no problem. Now I am thinking about adding another more higher level ASP.NET (non-wcf) web service which would be calling the original web service.The question is - will the client identity flow across two hops as in client (1)-> new web service (2)-> old web service) or there will be issues?
I need a book or two to get a good understanding of web services, starting from very basics, and going upto WCF. I've been using c# for 2 years and have intermediate level of experience with the language.
I have written some web services that I want to make available to others by subscription. The subscribers need to use the service from a specific domain / IP address and also authenticate with a user Id and password.
What exactly should I distribute to the subscriber so they can use the services, while exposing the least about my code?How can authenticate a consumer of services without always passing an Id / password for each service?
I've created Web Services in .Net 3.5 & Consumed those Web Services in a Client Web Application. Now i want to Host the WebService in IIS 5.1. I'm very new to .net, I'm using VS 2010, Wndows XP Service Pack 3, IIS 5.1;
I'm having my first experience with Web Services with .Net. I received from a client an integration manual to consume a web service they have.
In this manual I have the following information:
Request Interface: [URL]
Using SOAP request would return a XML Document with the response.
There's also XSD for the response XML.
Well, I'm having a little trouble trying to figure out how to consume this web service.
I found a topic here pointing to a MSDN article. There it says that I would have to add a Web Reference for this web service, but in my case this web service is external. Do I really have to add this reference to consume the web service? If yes how do I do that?
Next I have to create the XML Document that will be sent with the SOAP request. But here's a question. Searching on the internet I found mainly two types of request XML. I don't know wich one I should use.
The first one would be:
The second one is a XML file with soap:Body, soap:Header, soap:Envelope, etc.
Wich one should I create with my application in order to consume the web service? If it's the second one, how would look the XML for the data of the first XML?
And finally, how do I send the Soap request? As I said above, I found a MSDN article but it assumes I'm adding a web reference to the web service on my project and I belive that in my case I won't add this reference. So, how do I consume this web service?
I'm kind of lost here and really really soon I will have to estimate how long will take to develop the web service consume code.
How to make web services secure in asp.net both the asmx and on WCF. Currently we have web services and now are in process of converting them to WCF in some modules in our application. Now as upgradation is in process we like to incorporate security on the web services as we intend to open some of them to all our clients via web (they contain both asmx and WCF as well).
I have a webservice, that when called, calls many other web services based on the information that was sent. I have always left the timeout as the default, or a better way to describe it, I have never changed anything. How (and where) do I change the timeouts for each service individually. Since I have quite a few now, I want the original transaction to never take more than 30 seconds. That said. I want to go in and change the timeouts for the services I have to ping in that 30 seconds to be 5 to 10 seconds based on which one.
i had been developing web applications in .net 2.0 version ,now i need to learn concepts in web services and wcf as they are the major improvements over previous versions... if anyone can provide RELIABLE online resources link for learning about web services and wcf..i had seen the msdn link but am not knowing where to start..??...will there be any virtual labs to practise in .net 3.5.
I'm working on an existing web application (web site project and some class library projects). In the web site project, the guys created many web services, that are called from the aspx pages (sometimes on client side).
I need to create a new web service, so I was suggested to put it "near" the existing web services. I'm gonna need to make an asynchronous call to my new web services.
So I created the service this way, but when I try calling a method asynchronisly, I have only the method in intellisense, I don't have the method for the asynchronous call, neither the Complete event. Why is that ?
On the other hand, I created a new project, with a web service application and a web site where I added the reference to the web service, and this way I have the asynchronous method and the complete event in intellisense.
Is there any way to check a web service's availability and get an alert whenever it is down?
I am supporting a very critical application and it went down few times because the webservice that it is supposed to be using was not accessible to it. So is there a way in which I could set up some monitoring and poll the web service periodically to check if it is available or not.
If calling the web service is the only way to check, I have a method in the web service which is supposed to return true.. How do I write code(windows app/web app/windows service/anything) so that it calls this method every 5 mins and sends me an email.
What would be the best way to setup the periodic polling, and how do I do it?
