WCF / ASMX :: Service Host And Https Cannot Find Any Metadata?

Aug 18, 2010

I created a WCF Service Library and there're 2 services (http endpoint and https endpoint) in the App.cofig file. The WCF Service Host had not problem to host the http endpoint but failed to host the https endpoint with these messages:

WCF Service Host cannot find any metadata. Additional Info: The service cannot be started. This service has no endpoint defined. Please add at least one endpoint for the service in config file and try again.

What's wrong with the configuration?

Excerpt of App.config file:

WCF / ASMX ::Metadata Publishing For Service Disabled?

Mar 22, 2011

At random, we get the "Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled." message. There is nothing I can do to make it go away, iisreset, deleting all websites, stopping all sites, etc. If I open any site, I get that same message. The only site that remains functional is Outlook Web Access, the other 20 ASP.NET just fail. Is there a way to trace where the message is coming from? I have no default binding in IIS (Removed the default site), and the site keeps responding with this message after stopping the sites that bind to the specific url. The frustrating is that there is nothing I can do to reproduce or solve the error, even the more drastic steps.

WCF / ASMX :: HTTP Error: 404, When Attempt To Access Service HTTPS On Different Port?

Feb 9, 2010

we have a situation where we need to host two certificates on the same server and because we can't have two different certificates on the same server running off the same port we have assigned one certificate run through another port, which is 4443.

So the URL to our web app is now....


If I punch this into a web browser I can access it fine, however, if I create a web reference using this URL in Visual Studio (2005) it can create the web reference fine and it builds ok. But whenever I call a web method on this service instance I get a HTTP 404 page not found Exception.

Is there any properties I need to set on the web service object to get this to work? I'm confused as to why it's not working.

ASMX :: WCF Service Find Current Url?

Oct 7, 2010

I have a WCF Service that loads a file located on a local web server. How can I load that file based off an Uri? So I don't have to hard code in the address? So instead of doing a XmlDocument.Load(http://mywebaddress/ConfigFile/config.xml); I could put in or find the current URL of webservice then add the parameter. Sort of like this:

XmlDocument.Load("~/ConfigFile/config.xml"); That way if I'm publishing or Debugging it's all one file in the same exact location.

Configuration :: How To Host A Same Page With Same Content On HTTP As Well As HTTPS

Jul 30, 2010

I am creating a website with password-protected pages in it.

I have two type of customer: 1. Free 2. Paid

For paid customers, pages would be rendered over HTTPS whereas for free customer, pages will be rendered over HTTP. However, pages for both types of users would be same (while populating specific information for each user.)

note, the URL for the two users should be same except HTTP/HTTPS part.

I am new to HTTPS and want to know how to achieve this.

I am wondering how to implement it?

Expose A WCF Service Via Forms Authentication In IIS - How To Make The Metadata

Aug 16, 2010

We've got some WCF services we're hosting via IIS. The application in general uses Forms Authentication, and we'd like to continue making that available for web service clients. We just have a <authorization><deny users="?"> in our web.config and some authentication/redirection goodness that gets everything done.

The problem is we'd like for users to be able to access the metadata for the services without authentication. Can they visit /services/v1/ArtifactService.svc?wsdl anonymously and yet still require authentication for /services/v1/ArtifactService.svc/rest/GetArtifacts?studyId=123? If so, I can't figure out the right incantation in the configuration.

The best I can think of is to set an absolute URL in the metadata service behavior, but then I have to doctor the path on install anywhere we deploy. (<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpGetUrl=[URL]

WCF / ASMX :: Want To Use Https, Endpoint Binding Doesnt Work

Sep 3, 2010

I am very new to WCF, I have read a lot and seen several presentations about it. I can get the basicHttp endpoint to work on my server but when i wanted to use https, I found that that endpoint binding doesnt work. I think through my research that the wsHttp binding is what i need. I can get the client to work but the service gives me a few different errors when I try to call the ssl endpoint.

Currently i get the following error:

The requested service, 'https://devwcftestsite.crata.ucf.edu/services/Person.svc/Person' could not be activated. See the server's diagnostic trace logs for more information.

Below I have included the web.config for my service project which is hosted at:https://devwcftestsite.crata.ucf.edu/services the service is called:Person.svc

How To Force Web Service Request To Use HTTPS

Jun 1, 2010

I have an asp.net web service which has SSL enabled via IIS. It works fine if the user uses https, however I have a user that insists on using http on the url.

What I'd like to do is have the web service (asmx) do the equivalent of the response.redirect to change http to https automatically.

I don't believe that I can do this from a web service so does anyone know a of a similar solution for web services.

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.

MVC :: Extend The HtmlHelper By Using Metadata / Access Metadata In HtmlHelper Extension Method?

Jan 9, 2010

I would like to extend the HtmlHelper by using metadata (similar to DataAnnotaions metadata). Specifically I want to be able to add a 'Title' attribute to html controls that will then appear as a tooltip on the control. I would like to keep the tooltip text with my model, for example by adding 'Tiltle' metadata to the model as follows:

[DisplayName("User Id")]
[Title("Enter your 10 digit user id")]
property UserId { get; set; }

So the questions are:

1. How do I add metadata (such as 'Title') to my model?

2. How do I access this metadata in my HtmlHelper extension method?
