How to send binary data ( ogg audio file) using a web service?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

Hi folks, I would appreciate any help or guidance on this topic:

How can I receive binary data (specifically an ogg audio file) using a WCF4 service?

The general idea is to define and host a WCF service inside IIS that returns an audio file (ogg file)

I have read some info related with using ByteStreamMessageEncodingBindingElement class to achieve this, also I read some topic related on using MTOM to attach a binary file. It seems that it can be several ways or approaches to achieve this.

So any guidance on the themes and/or examples for the better way to solve this point would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Read Binary Data which is nothing but a Zip file and unzip through SSIS 2005 SP2

Hi ALL, I need some help in developing a task. I have a source database which is Oracle and it has a ZIP file stored inside the database in Binary format. When I move this data into the sql server 2005 database I get the data as binary data. Now the task begins with SSIS, I need to read the binary data which gives us a zip file and then unzip this zip file and read the XML data which is present inside the Zip file. I beleive some one might have already developed this task can you share the solution with us. Note: As this has to be moved into production I dont have permission to use third party tools like Cozy roc or install winrar.exe and simpy calling this exe from the execute process task in SSIS.  Raju

400 Bad Request when trying to send large file to service using basichttp streaming.


Hi All,


I am trying to send the large file (approx 1.5GB) to the WCF service for upload using basic http streaming.

I have increased all the timeouts and quotas in the server and client's config files to quite large values, but still I am getting Bad Request error on the client.


Also the Bad request message is returned always in 1 minute 30 seconds after sending the request to server.


What the most unusual thing is when I use Fiddler or Charles to debug communication, everything works fine. Is it something like fiddler is pinging the IIS or service and hence its not getting timeouted or like that?




Following are the details:

Server Config:


 <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" />

how to send the dump file to Microsoft, is this a pay service?


Since my SQL2000 server has the "insufficient memory error 701" when doing tlog backup, it happens randomly, I applied the hotfix, increased physical memory from 2GB to 8GB with awe enabled, max server memory 6GB, it still happens sometimes when backup less than 100MB log (active log should be less than it). I tried incrase memtoleave g512 and .... whatever suggested on the forums etc. the problem still not fixed permanently.

I was suggested to dump the sql and send microsoft, but how and is there a charge?

Fax Services: Send Any Printable File From Your Program in Windows 2000


All versions of Windows 2000 have fax services built in, so sending faxes manually is as easy as setting fax options from the control panel. Faxes can also be sent programmatically in Windows 2000 using either COM Automation or the standard C API. The example in this article uses COM Automation with Visual Basic and MFC to programmatically manage faxing. The objects used for fax transmission, such as the FaxServer and FaxDoc objects, as well as their properties and methods, are explained. Because faxing of files you can't print can be problematic, this process is explained. Finally, this article implements a fax routing extension-a plug-in that exports standard functions and implements routing methods for processing received faxes.

Collaboration Data Objects: Send Microsoft Exchange Appointment Reminders to Your Pager Using CDO


Besides your typical e-mail services, Microsoft Exchange also provides the service infrastructure you need to build extensible knowledge and workflow management systems. Understanding Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) is the key to accessing these Exchange services for your own programs. With CDO you can automate tedious tasks and integrate information such as e-mail, calendars, and contacts with almost any application. This article explains how CDO enables you to access Exchange services, then walks you through a sample application that reads calendar events from an Exchange server and sends pager reminders to your users.
