WCF / ASMX :: Web Service Error: Object Reference Not Set To An Instance Of An Object

I could really use some help on this one. I've been fighting it now for several days and we are supposed to start testing early next week.I am subscribing to 4 web services all hosted by the same company. The integration with 1, 2 and 3 all went fine, but on the fourth I keep getting the very unhelpful error:

How To Make A Web (WCF) Service Act As Windows Service

Sep 22, 2010

I have a web application - .net 4. The client is having a requirement that he want to send email to his users on a regular basis about his new courses etc.

The webapplication created will hosted on a "Shared hosting environment" with no excess to windows services - file system other than the web root folder through FTP.

Due to shared hosting i cannot create a windows service for him which will check the database - if there are any scheduled mail to send every 5 min.

So my question is - Is there anyway i can run a wcf web service or any other web based service or page or handler which can keep running and automatically checks the database for any new scheduled mails - if yes start sending it automatically in an different thread.

Could Not Open A Connection To SQL Server?

Aug 31, 2010

I have problems connecting to my database server. The database server is not local, I am connected via its IP address. It works fine in my development machine. After publishing the website to my server, it can not connect to my database server. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)Why can't my publish server connect to the database server, whereas it works fine through the development machine?

ADO.NET :: Open SQL Server Connection Troubleshooting?

Sep 2, 2010

This is regarding ASP.Net (VB) 2.0 and SQL Server 2008. My project's (there is only one in my solution) has a "Start Action" set to a "Specific Page" (..FormsfrmMain.aspx). Occasionally (though not always) a large number of connections (30+) will be opened prior to the frmMain.PreInit event. These connections stay open for quite some time. I am closing all of my connections with extreme prejudice. In my "finally" clause of my try...catch I have myconnection.close. Immediately after the "End Try" I have myconnection.dispose (redundant, I know). I have accounted for all connections. I placed a breakpoint on frmMain.PreInit and then (sometimes) a large number of connections (used SSMS to run sp_who and sp_who2) will have just opened.What would open a large number of connections prior to the starting page's preinit event? I am closing (and then disposing) all of my connections. I thought that I must be missing a myconnection.close in the "finally" clause, but I have looked repeatedly and cannot find anywhere that a connection is open and then not closed. Also, I do not believe that I have even opened a connection prior to the frmMain's preinit event.

Php - Keep Sql Connection Open For Iterating Many Requests?

Jan 26, 2011

this is general to any operation calling an SQL server, or anything requiring an open connection at that.Say I have anywhere from 20 to 1000 Select calls to make for each item in data being looped. For each step, I'll select from sql, store data locally in a struct, then proceed. This is not a very expensive call, so should I keep the connection open for the entire loop? Or should I open and close every step? How expensive in run time is opening a connection? I would think it'd be better to keep the connection open, but would like to get the correct response for this.

State Management :: Keep Socket Connection Open?

May 26, 2010

I wrote a small socket client application talking to my server application.

On the side, I created a IHttpHandler. I want to send data back and forth on one HTTP request.

I tried the following code which run an infinite loop inside function ProcessRequest(). The client side opens a socket connection and send HTTP POST request.

I am not sure how work. In HTTP POST I have to specify Content-Length, I tried a small value, like 20, then handler can only get 20 bytes in the inputstream. I tried to use 4096000 bytes(close to the maximum IIS allowed), then the inputstream cannot get anything, it seems IIS is waiting for all data(4096000) to come from client side before it gives the handler a chance to read from the socket.

public class DeviceDataHandler : IHttpHandler
public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
Stream inputstream = context.Request.InputStream;
Stream outputstream = context.Response.OutputStream;
/loop forever until exception is thrown
while (true)
ProcessData(inputstream, outputstream);
catch (Exception ex)
ZenLog.logError("DeviceConnector exception: " + ex.Message);
public bool IsReusable
return true;
