create web service with http-post method

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

hi All,

we need to expose a web service to the 3rd party vendor which can only call using POST protocol, NOT SOAP.

So my question, is it better to build a web service or just simply .aspx page?

Also is there any best practice documentation on this.

How do I use x-http-method-override for a REST service in WCF 4.0


Back in WCF 3.5 using the WCF REST Starter Kit, I was able to create a request interceptor to handle x-http-method-override headers for clients that cannot send PUT or DELETE commands.  How do I do the equivalent in WCF 4.0?

REST WCF service. Unable to create Upload method for binary


I want to create a REST WCF service that can receive an image (binary).

Following this and this article I still cannot get it working. Only difference is I use IIS as host for my service, which means it runs in Cassini webserver.

Creating a Web Service to Recive a HTTP POST with an XML document as the body or payload from a PHP



I have been strugleing with this for more than a week, and have not been able to get any further ahead. I need to create a Webservice that can recive an HTTP Post with an XML document as the body or payload. It will be comeing from a PHP site, and I need to access it in ASP.Net.

I can create a webservice and test it out correctly with no real hitch, but when testing with my  third partys test page I am not getting the proper responce. The third party company can not provide me with much help since they do not know ASP.

The following is a sample code peice that can open a string of XML passed, and I have a form that can post to this test page.

public XmlDocument ProcessXML(String SourceXML)
XmlDocument NewSourceXML = new XmlDocument();



I knoiw that once I can read the posted XML I can break it down and do what I need to do with it, but I am having issues reciving the XML at this point.

My third party provided me with a basic excert from a PHP file.

 *  Get the HTTP request (body) and parse into an XML document
$data = file_get_contents("php://input");
$xmlstr = trim( stripslashes( $data ) );
$xml = new SimpleXMLElement($xmlstr);

But this is of no help to me. I need to

HTTP Post and WebService


I am working on a application which will accept the data in the post request. My application also wants to expose a web service and want to call another web service. Considering all these 3 action that I want to do, can I create a single application which will have a web form which will accept the POST request and expose a web service at the same time.

Although it may be possible to achieve this, Is this a correct way of doing it?

Cash Drawer - Method Open threw an exception - Windows Service

Hi All, I'm getting the following exception while calling Open method of Cash Drawer object. Method Open threw an exception.  Could not read the device name key's default value, or could not convert the Programmatic ID it holds into a valid Class ID. Code:   class Class1 { CashDrawer _uniCashDrawer1 = null; DeviceInfo cashDrawerDevice1 = null; PosExplorer posExplorer = new Microsoft.PointOfService.PosExplorer();   public void ClaimCashDrawer() { cashDrawerDevice1 = posExplorer.GetDevice("CashDrawer", "testDrawer"); if (cashDrawerDevice1 != null) { _uniCashDrawer1 = posExplorer.CreateInstance(cashDrawerDevice1) as CashDrawer; if (_uniCashDrawer1 != null) { _uniCashDrawer1.StatusUpdateEvent += new StatusUpdateEventHandler(UniCashDrawer1_StatusUpdateEvent); _uniCashDrawer1.Open(); _uniCashDrawer1.Claim(0); _uniCashDrawer1.DeviceEnabled = true; } } } }   Tha above code works fine if you put the code in WindowsApplication in all POS systems. The same is working if you put the code in Windows Service in all other POS systems. The same is not working if you put the code in Windows Service in Aures Galeo POS systems.  Thanks in advance.
