Simple ASP.NET SOAP request to return string

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a requirement to build a simple ASP.NET web page which sends some parameters to a web service, and then displays the string which was returned.

I'm a complete .NET newby and the only examples I can find seem really really complex.  I just need something mega simple, but which an handle parameters being sent to the web service.  Can anyone point me in the direction of a simple bit of C# which will do this with no frills or fuss?

Any help much appreciated, thanks!

A Young Person's Guide to The Simple Object Access Protocol: SOAP Increases Interoperability Across


The Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) facilitates interoperability among a wide range of programs and platforms, making existing applications accessible to a broader range of users. SOAP combines the proven Web technology of HTTP with the flexibility and extensibility of XML. This article takes you on a comprehensive tour of Object RPC technology to help you understand the foundations of SOAP and the ways it overcomes many of the limitations of existing technologies, including DCOM and CORBA. This is followed by a detailed treatment of the SOAP encoding rules with a focus on how SOAP maps onto existing ORPC concepts.

Seeing the SOAP request sent from a Web Service Client/Consumer

Hello, I am building a web service consumer in C# in VS2010.  Using the provided WSDL, I need to build appropriate headers and use certificates, SSL (user name & pass), & WS security.  I am getting an error from the webservice side, specifically processing the <wsse:Security> header. Is it possible for me to see the exact request I am sending to the Webservice? I'd like to see the values of the pieces of the header that get put in and such. Is it possible to have human readable serialization of what's being passed in right before the error? Thank You

Any way to re-route soap request to different method using soap extensions?

Not sure if this is possible, but is there any way (using soap extensions) to intercept a soap message and re-route it to a different method on the web service host?  I am able to intercept and replace the method name in the xml, but it still goes to the original method.

Obtain url query string during Json request

So I'm writing an MVC application, and have a JsonResult post back to obtain some item information for scanned items on a warehouse application I am writing. I'm trying to obtain a URL query string value though, and cannot seem to obtain one via the normal 'Request.QueryString['variable']' way... Is there a way to do this? I also thought about just passing the parameter into my post, but I already have a single value on my jquery post, and I am unsure if I can tack on more values to this. Thanks for your help.

ASMX to WCF Soap request

I have a .asmx service that I need to convert to WCF. The service receives xml requests via the request input stream,  parses xml and sends clients back a response also in xml. The clients are sending SOAP requests. I have to make this change transparent to the clients. I'm somewhat new to WCF so i'm wondering what would be the best solution. REST looks good but I need to support SOAP. Is it possible to use basicHTTPBinding for my needs?

Simple return value from WebMethod from Ajax function using JQuery


I have an Ajax function called from JQuery that goes to a webservice to return a value.  I need a SIMPLE example on how I can do this.  I've been going nuts with serializing and every other aspect of this topic. 

I need to return either an ArrayList with ONE string field or a DataTable of some kind.  Either way, I'm populating it into a DropDownList.

I'm willing to consider alternatives to this idea. (Background info - I get a value from a textbox and I need to run it through a DB to get an associated value or set of values).  I'm being really general so that someone can show a simple example.  Thanks.

view soap request message


I am consuming a .net 2.0 webservice from a class library and calling this class from a web page form . When a user inputs and saves the data in the form it will call the class and inturn send the user inputted data over webservice. I want to view the Soap messages like request and response going from my dll to the webservice. I tried fiddler but with no luck. So I created a class mentioned here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.services.protocols.soapextension(v=VS.90).aspx

and added the in the dll.config file like this and it was also of no help. By the way the end webservice is https not http.

String encryption problem with request.querystring (urlencode/decode)


I need to pass a userid as a guid number through a url quesrystring

 my starting GUID is in string format =  "23c6e6a5-e9fc-4fd0-aa15-e5db9b900388"

1) I encrypt it using tripledes

the resulting string value =  "nJYKpGwOeoOWepKPSDyNnO+xk+ZcfYZnyxvAnKTNCMV/ZJ7CfDKcmA=="

if I immeadiately decrypt it get the expected original value (so my tripledes provider is working)

2) I then urlencode the value for placing into the url which results in:

urlencoded = "nJYKpGwOeoOWepKPSDyNnO%2bxk%2bZcfYZnyxvAnKTNCMV%2fZJ7CfDKcmA%3d%3d"

3) when a read it back from the url using Request.QueryString (a function which automatically decodes the value)

I get the value: "nJYKpGwOeoOWepKPSDyNnO xk ZcfYZnyxvAnKTNCMV/ZJ7CfDKcmA=="

It appears the "+" characters where replaced with " "

This incorrect value caused the tripledes decryption to fail.
I am using VS 2010 Framework 4.0, IIS7, IE8 and the System.Security.Cryptography.TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong. It appears the the problem is with the urlencode or the embeded urldecode which is part of request.querystring

Many thanks for any assistance in how to resolve this.
