Calling a data-driven web service method asynchronously

  

I am trying to write a Windows Service which will call web service methods based on a run schedule.  I have setup a ‘schedule’ table which holds the name of the web service method and some scheduling details (e.g. run every day at 0200).  I am using VS 2005/vb.net.

My service creates a timer which runs every minute and when the timer is fired the schedule table is read and  any entries which are due to fire are actioned.  This could mean multiple methods being fired at the same time.  As some of the methods are overnight batch processes and may take some time, I don’t want processes to wait for others to finish before being actioned.  As the methods themselves write to the system log to report their success or failure the scheduling service does not care whether the job fails or not – it is simply doing a ‘fire and forget’ exercise.

What I need is some code which will fire a data-driven web service method asynchronously.

I have investigated two types of method call.  The first is a simple InvokeMethod:-

mywebservice.GetType().InvokeMember(ScheduleRow("WebMethod").TOString(),(Reflection.BindingFlags.InvokeMethod Or Reflection.BindingFlags.IgnoreReturn), Nothing, mywebservice, Nothing)

The second is an asynchronous call:-

Dim asyncCall as New AsyncCallB

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

  
Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

WCF Data Service to JSON example? v4

  

I would like to take WCF Data Service and produce JSON output to consume on various mobile apps.

Can anyone give me a how-to on the JSON part?  I.e., what is different than normal XML outut?


Thanks.
