WCF / ASMX :: PowerShell In Web Service For Ajax Requests?

Dec 9, 2010

A customer wants us to create an ajax-enabled web application that can be used to manage their IT environment (Active directory, mail, file security, ...). However, as the team that will support the web application does not know anything about these IT systems, they would like to split the coding so that all interfacing with the IT environment is done via PowerShell, which is known by the administrators of these systems. This would mean that if new functionality is required, the web team can just create an additional web page and interface and use PowerShell scripts that get created by technically skilled people in that specific topic (ie mail administrators). I don't see an issue using this approach for requests like adding a user where latency is not an issue, but I do wonder if this is feasible for interactive content with Ajax.

Ie I would like to implement a google suggest like search for AD users. This would mean that ie for every x keystrokes (or x seconds whatever approach I implement) an Ajax request will be made and the web application or web service will than use PowerShell to get the data. Taken into account that up to about 75 users can use this feature, is this something that would work? Not only performace-wise but also the number of connections (I read about the Powershell 5 remote session limit but also that it could be put to a higher number)? The example above is probably the most resource heavy Ajax requests (and can be optimized by caching), so taken into account they don't want this nice feature, are basic PowerShell scripts in ajax request really an option. My gut feeling is telling me this is a no-go, but I don't want to exclude the option just because it's not something I usually would do.

WCF / ASMX :: Discarding Queued Web Service Requests?

Mar 16, 2011

If a user makes a second request to the same Web Service method while the first request is already running, is there a way to simply stop the execution of the first request and discard it immediately?

Usually what happens is users get impatient and click on a button 10 times when there's a performance blip in the system, which only makes things worse since the system now has to process 10 queued requests (the first 9 of which are now irrelevant) before any results are returned.

WCF / ASMX :: Do Multiple WCF Web Service Requests Queue Up Or Do They Run In Parallel

Mar 17, 2011

I've got a WCF web service that runs fine at the moment but there is talk about using it very heavily soon. As part of it's normal process it writes a file out, then reads it back in again (don't ask why, I know it's stupid). I'm concerned that if we start hitting it with lots of requests then the following might happen.

1. Request 1 writes the file out.

2. Request 2 comes in and overwrites the file.

3. Request 1 reads the file back in but this is now the wrong file.

My understanding is that the requests would naturally queue up so that request 2 wouldn't start until request 1 had finished, but I'm not totally sure.

Jquery - Why 3 Extra HTTP Requests Are Done If You Use Ajax Call To A .net Web Service

Apr 4, 2011

When I was reading the blog Using jQuery to Consume ASP.NET JSON Web Services

I have seen this argument:

"By using jQuery to call the web service directly, we've eliminated over 100 KB of JavaScript and three extra HTTP requests. "

Why does the ASP.NET AJAX call to a .NET Web-Service needs 3 extra HTTP requests? What are those requests? (I wonder how jQuery manages the call with lesser HTTP requests in this case).

AJAX :: Unable To Make Wcf JSON Ajax Service Work Through Http Like Asmx?

Jun 22, 2010

I am new to WCF, I was using web service asmx before. I have trouble on making my wcf JSON ajax service work through http like asmx.Could you help me see what wrong in my code?My WCF services are defined in my website application folder. My aim is to call this service in my aspx page java-script code and return complex object back as JSON to my javascript. I have no problem on doing this through classic asmx web service.

When I try to test it through my browser by type this in the URL , URL-http://localhost:3849/WebServices/Account/WCFCompanyService.svc/GetAll. it return "Method not allowed."

But if I type just this URL-http://localhost:3849/WebServices/Account/WCFCompanyService.svc, it return this:

WCFCompanyService Service

You have created a service.To test this service, you will need to create a client and use it to call the service. You can do this using the svcutil.exe tool from the command line with the following syntax:

svcutil.exe URL-http://localhost:3849/WebServices/Account/WCFCompanyService.svc?wsdl

This will generate a configuration file and a code file that contains the client class. Add the two files to your client application and use the generated client class to call the Service. For example:


class Test { static void Main() { HelloClient client = new HelloClient();


This is my Ajax-enabled WCF service code:


This is the web.config service model setting

AJAX :: Calling Asmx Service From JQuery

Jun 15, 2010

I am trying to call an asmx service using the jQuery ajax call-


I have double checked the url of the service and spelling/case of the name of the method as well as the parameters in the dataStr.

I still get the error-<b> Description: </b>HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

in the responseText of XMLHttpRequest, above.

WCF / ASMX :: Duplicate Requests Sent?

Sep 23, 2010

I am calling a web service in my aspx page. the web service (written in java) is acting as a middleware between my system and another system (Siebel) to which I send services and get response for these services. some requests are synchronous. Sometimes when invoking a method the response takes a long time to respond, so a time out exception is thrown.

The problem is that the web service is receiving the same request many times despite I am calling it only once.In my log file and database entries it is clear that the request is called only once. but in the middleware and Siebel side they are receving four or five requests for the same request sent by me.

Is this a bug in asp.net. is it possible that the server where my application is deployed is sending the request many times when not getting the response.Note: iam using Visual studion 2005. the application is deployed to windows server 2003.Iam not discussing the problem of time out. iam asking about the duplicate issue.

WCF / ASMX :: Best Practice For Blocking Requests Until Data Is Cached?

Mar 13, 2011

I have a RESTful webservice. This webservice builds some information (which can take upwards of a couple seconds) and caches the contents.

This works well; however, suppose that many of the same requests come in at about the same time. In our current scenario, each request will build the content before caching. This is obviously not desired as it uses CPU time that could be better served elsewhere. What I would like to do is to suspend/block requests to the same url/cachekey until the content has been built and cached, at which time those other requests will be unblocked and simply fetch the content from cache.

I am not sure the best way. The following are options I have thought about:

Use string.Intern on that cache key and lock. Problem is that this could cause a deadlock if that string is used elsewhere. Use a ConcurrentDictionary and WaitHandle objects to allow other request to lookup in the dictionary if a request is being processed and then "wait" for the request to finish. This would at least give me a timeout capability but I am concerned with the performance of creating many wait handles.

C# - Disable Keep - Alive On Web Service Client Requests?

Mar 23, 2010

I have a few web servers behind an Amazon EC2 load balancer. I'm using TCP balancing on port 80 (rather than HTTP balancing). I have a client polling a Web Service (running on all web servers) for new items every few seconds. However, the client seems to stay connected to one server and polls that same server each time. I've tried using ServicePointManager to disable KeepAlive, but that didn't change anything. The outgoing connection still had its "connection: keep-alive" HTTP header, and the server kept the TCP connection open. I've also tried adding an override of GetWebRequest to the proxy class created by VS, which inherits from SoapHttpClientProtocol, but I still see the keep-alive header.

If I kill the client's process and restart, it'll connect to a new server via the load balancer, but it'll continue polling that new server forever. Is there a way to force it to connect to a random server each time? I want the load from the one client to be spread across all of the web servers. The client is written in C# (as is the server) and uses a Web Reference (not a Service Reference), which points to the load balancer.

WCF / ASMX :: Code Within A WebService And WCF Client Work Only When Fildder Is Capturing Requests?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a piece of code written in 2 different ways, one a web service and another a WCF client which are trying to access an external 3rd party URL.

The same code when written as an exe works fine, i see my submissions on the 3rd party site, while the web code does not work.

I installed Fiddler to check traffic and to my surprise the web code works when Fiddler is capturing traffic, As soon as I stop Fiddler my code does not work.

For the web service code I get error: The remote name could not be resolved:

For the WCF client I get error: There was no endpoint listening at <<3rd party URL>> that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action.

Am quite sure now that this is because of some network and/or proxy on my corporate network, but not able to figure out what it can be.

WCF / ASMX :: IIS Memory Increasing For Each Client Request In Asmx Web Service?

Nov 8, 2010

A customer reported that our asmx web service is continually increasing in memory (mem usage as well as private bytes). We are able to reproduce the problem in our lab with Windows 2003 Server SP2 (fully patched) on some of the machines. The customer is using Windows 2008.

We created a Hello World web service targeting the 2.0 framework built under VS2005 SP1 and a test client that continues to call it. The memory increases steadily - approximately 40K per client request. If the test app is paused, the memory remains the same. When it is closed, the memory drops. Explicit calling of GC.Collect does not drop the memory.

We have run the memory profiler on the service and the leak is all native memory. We have uninstalled/re-installed the Framework on one of the machines but no difference. To our knowledge all of the security and IIS settings are not modified. We have compared app pool, default web site and virtual directory properties to machines that have no problem and they are identical.
