Why ASMX web services are not an excuse anymore with WCF 4.0

Posted By: cibrax     Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 
ASXM web services has been the favorite choice for many developers for building soap web services in .NET during a long time because of its simplicity. With ASMX web services, you get a web service up and running in a matter of seconds, as it does not require any configuration. The only thing you need to do is to build the service implementation and the message contracts (xml serialization classes), and that's all. However, when you build a system as a black box with most of the configuration hardcoded, and only a few extensibility points in mind, you will probably end up with something that is very easy to deploy and get running, but it can not be customized at all. That's what an ASMX web service is after all, you don't have a way easily change the protocol versions, encoders, security or even extend with custom functionality (SOAP extensions are the only entry point for extensibility, which work as message inspectors in WCF). On the other hand, you have WCF, which is extensible beast for building services among other things. The number of extensibility points that you will find in WCF is extremely high, but the downside is that configuration also becomes extremely complex and a nightmare for most developers that only want to get their services up and running. Fortunately, the WCF team has considerably improved the configuration experience in WCF 4.0, making possible to run

Web Services ASMX Data to SQL 2005 Server

  

I'm using Visual Studio 2010.  Project .NET 2.0 ASMX web service to SQL 2005.  In the VS development server the data goes into the SQL Server correct but the page displays a blank http 500 page. When I load it to the local IIS webserver the data does not go and it still displays the blank http 500 page. 

 

Here's my  code

Installing and Uninstalling Services

  
Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

  
Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

  
I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

  
Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

  
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

.NET Web Services Tutorial

  
Visual Studio .NET makes .NET programming simple and accelerates the development process. It hides a lot of repetitive and configuration details from the user and improves productivity. However, sometimes you would like to program for .NET without using VS .NET; for example, you want to learn .NET framework programming and do not have access to VS .NET or you want to know what is actually going on under the hood.

Writing a Web Service in .NET using VS .NET very is easy. However, it is possible to write Web Services using the plain .NET SDK. I struggled a lot to write Web Services without VS .NET and tried to find help on the Net. There are a lot of examples available for writing Web Services using VS.NET, but you will rarely find any examples of writing Web Services using only the .NET SDK. This article is exactly for this purpose. It looks at Web Services development using the .NET SDK alone.

Why use Web services ?

  
Before the arrival of Web services, other technologies and architectures existed that met the functionality of today´s web service. Microsoft's version of these technologies, are called Component Object Model (COM), and subsequently Distributed COM (DCOM). WinDNA is a comprehensive term for implementing the above two distributed software development technologies. These technologies typically use the TCP/IP protocol.

CORBA - Common Object Request Broker is a competitor of COM, developed by a consortium of vendors called the Object Management Group. Although these technologies were a breakthrough in distributed computing and served such ends well for at least five years, there were many limitations. Concerning

Posting data to ASMX and return Object for jQuery

  

I am using fluent NHibernate with WebForms and I am trying to build a page where I allow a user to post a status update on their profile page and I a using a .asmx WebService to post the data to the database and then returnig a StatusUpdate instance to the page to be used by jQuery. I have a couple problems.

1) First off when I return a string from the WebService(i was testing) the textbox where the user enters their status doesnt empty the contents. And since the page doesnt refresh even if I manally clear out the textbox and put in something else, it still posts the previous status to the database again. How do I fix this?

2) Secondly, when I return the StatusUpdate Object from the Webservice I cant the results to display anything. Like I sad, Im using jQuery to make an AJX call to the WebService.

Here is my code:

User Profile Page:

<p>
Status: <asp:Label ID="status" runat="server"></asp:Label><span style="font-size:.7em;"><asp:Label ID="statustime" runat="server"></asp:Label></span><br />
<textarea id="statusBox" rows="3" cols="40"></textarea><br />
<input type="button" value="Update Status" onclick="SetStatus(); return false;

Reporting Services SQL 2005 .Net 4 compatibility?

  

I've been working on my first asp.net application and for the most part it's been pretty smooth.  Right now I'm having trouble getting reporting services working under SQL Server 2005.  I developed the site with Visual Studio 2010 and didn't think about any of the .Net 4.0 compatibility issues that have arisen.  I'm having no problems with the site communicating with SQL Server 2005 for the regular database stuff.  The only problem I'm having is with setting up Reporting Services.  I have the .Net 4.0 framework installed on the server, however Reporting Services is still using 2.x.  I'm not sure if this is a problem with SSRS or with IIS.  When i go to localhost/Reports it's reading my web.config for my application and throwing an error: "Parser Error Message: Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'."  This is referring to a line in my web.config where targetFramework is set to 4.0.


Software that I'm using:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • SQL Server 2005 Standard
  • IIS 7.0
  • .Net 4.0

Any suggestions?
