ASP.Net Client for Php REST Service

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 
 I am writing some code in an asp application that needs to communicate with a PHP REST Service. I have 2 questions. 1.  In my data variable I have to put the POST parameters.  If I needed to put reserved characters like & or ? into the string is there an escape character I can use?  Or would encoding it work?  Or would it totally depend on how the web service works? 2.  Is the code I am using the usual way to make a POST connection to a REST service?  Or is there an easier/faster way? Below is the code I am using Dim uri As New Uri("http://help.domain.com/api/index.php?method=request.create") Dim data As String = "tNote=Testing Code&sEmail=test@test.com" If uri.Scheme = uri.UriSchemeHttp Then Dim request As HttpWebRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create(uri) request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Post request.ContentLength = data.Length request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" Dim writer As New StreamWriter(request.GetRequestStream) writer.Write(data) writer.Close() Dim oResponse As HttpWebResponse = request.GetResponse() Dim reader As New StreamReader(oResponse.GetResponseStream()) Dim tmp As String = reader.ReadToEnd() oResponse.Close()

Looking for a simple Service and Console Client REST sample implementing BASIC authentication

  

Does anyone know of a C# code sample demonstrating WCF REST services and console test client with OperationContracts (GET and POST) implementing mutiple paramaters using BASIC authentication? Also, perhaps, using Fiddler as a test client as well? I have searched high and low for something like this, but have not had any success.


Problem to obtain client IP on web service

  

Friends,

I'm having problems to obtain the client IP on web service. Here's my scenario:

One server with Windows 2003, hosting the web service using .Net Framework 2.0, with IP 10.0.2.50 and host name ServerTransaction.
Other server with Windows 2003, hosting a web application using .Net Framework 2.0, that consuming the web service on  ServerTransaction, with IP 10.0.2.51 and host name ServerApplication.
Many other computers on the local network (IPs: 10.0.2.80, 10.0.2.81, 10.0.2.82, ...) acessing the web application on ServerApplication.

On the code of the web service I've tried to use HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FORR"), but always I can only get the IP of ServerApplication (10.0.2.51).

Any idea or tip?


Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

Multiple services in REST Collection WCF Service?

  

After I create a "REST Collection WCF Service" project, it contains one service "service.svc". Can I add multiple services to this project? There must be a way to do so. Otherwise, it does not make sense to create one project for each service.

 

My question is how to add a new service to an existing "REST Collection WCF Service" project?

 

Thanks a lot.


Serializing Linq to Entities for use in a REST Service

  
What would be the best approach to send data retrieved from Linq to Entities over a rest service? For example, if you have a Linq to Entities class, say Products from the Northwind database. I want to return a subset of the Products (based on a query on the model) back through a service. First a retrieve a List<Product> from the context, and then i need to serialize the data and send it over the wire. If I use the exact Linq to Entities class, then there is so much "garbage" that it either fails outright (from a circular reference) or you are wasting bandwith. What is a design to overcome this? Create POCO objects for each linq to entities class you want to send and create custom code to tranform each object in the list to the POCO object? This is the only way I can see doing it, although it would be very tedius to create and maintain (unless some custom code generation was created). Is there a better approach? clients

Error in consuming web service using WCF client

  
Hi, I have consumed an external webservice in my client application using WCF. And every thing works great in my Dev box(XP with IIS5.1) But when the same application is moved to Prod server(Win Server 2003 with IIS6.0) it fails. Below is the exception caught: There was no endpoint listening at http://MyExternalWebServiceUrlWithSessionId could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. And the InnerException is: Unable to connect to the remote server My Config file has the below settings:<system.serviceModel> <bindings> <basicHttpBinding> <binding name="Default_Binding" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferSize="65536" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="65536" messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" transferMode="Buffered" useDefaultWebProxy="true"> <readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringContentLength="8192" maxArrayLength="16384" maxBytesPerRead="4096" maxNameTableCharCoun

System.ComponentModel.DescriptionAttribute not showing up in REST service

  
I am trying to set the description for a REST WCF service, but it doesn't seem to be working.

.NET Client and Java Web Service Interoperability

  
I have a .net client that consumes an operation on a java based web service that appears to work accept for an issue with passing Boolean values back to the service in the soap message. Any member of the complex type that are defined as Boolean in the service contract will not be present in the soap message generated from the client even though they are set in the code. Sample Client Code: UpdateChecklistItemStatusPortTypeClient     proxy = new UpdateChecklistItemStatusPortTypeClient();     updateChecklistItemStatusReq request = new updateChecklistItemStatusReq(); request.ouid =   "P000122112"; request.applicationId =   "00000032"; request.adminFunction =   "ADMA"; request.checklistItemTypeCode =   "UHSTRN"; request.ceebCode =   "052046"; request.transcriptTerm =   "FINAL"; request.transcriptScores =   true;     updateChecklistItemStatusRsp response = new updateChecklistItemStatusRsp(); response = proxy.UpdateChecklistItemStatusOp(request); Client Soap Message Generated: <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">   <s:Body xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">   

GoDaddy + WCF REST Service

  
I am newbie when it comes to developing a WCF REST Service. I have been reading up and have worked through hands-on labs/watched videos by Ron Jacobs to help me get a hold of WCF REST.  I have had no problems running my web service on my localhost. However it is now time to upload my "WCF Service Application" (not WCF Library) to GoDaddy's servers and this is where I am running into issues. As per Ron Jacobs tutorials I have removed my endpoints from my web.config file and the markup code in my .svc file now reads: <%@ ServiceHost Language="C#" Debug="true" Service="DealService.Service" CodeBehind="Service.svc.cs" Factory="System.ServiceModel.Activation.WebServiceHostFactory"%> I proceeded to compile and then upload my code to GoDaddy and now am trying to access the web service, but am receiving the following error: Server Error in '/' Application. Parser Error Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.  Parser Error Message: The CLR Type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.WebServiceHostFactory' could not be loaded during service compilation. Verify that this type is either defined in a source file located in the application's \App

Async Web Service behavior on client disconnect

  
Hi all, I was wondering what is the best way to detect client disconnect in the middle of an async web service call. I'm asusming that if a client disconnects while the server is still processing the async web method call, an exception will be thrown. First, I wonder if someone can confirm that this is the right assumption. If that's the case, then I was wondering where should I set up the SEH block to catch this exception. My gut tells me to set up the SEH block in side the delegate funciton, but I might be wrong. Also, what kind of an exception would I be getting if the client disconnects? Finally, if the SEH is set up in the delegate, what happens if a client disconnects in the tiny window before or after the delegate gets called? If someone can shed some light here I'd really appreciate it! Thanks, - K.

Client and service binding mismatch?

  
I have a WCF web service that when I call I get an exception: Content Type text/xml; charset=utf-8 was sent to a service expecting application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8.  The client and service bindings may be mismatched. It seems that only difference is text/xml needs to be changed to 'application/soap+xml'. Any ideas on how to fix this? The service is self-hosted (console host). The service reference was generated from this service without a problem. Thank you. Kevin
