DIME: Sending Files, Attachments, and SOAP Messages Via Direct Internet Message Encapsulation

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a new specification for sending and receiving SOAP messages along with additional attachments, like binary files, XML fragments, and even other SOAP messages, using standard transport protocols like HTTP. In this article, the author explains what DIME is and how it differs from MIME encapsulation. A detailed description of the message format and how it is parsed, as well as working with SOAP and extending it with WSDL, is also included.

MSMQ and .NET: Send MSMQ Messages Securely Across the Internet with HTTP and SOAP


When creating a distributed system you frequently need to provide for communication between two entities that are not in sync. Microsoft Message Queue Server (MSMQ) provides the kind of store-and-forward messaging in a pre-built infrastructure that can help you address these kinds of messaging needs. In the past, MSMQ was accessed using a COM wrapper. Now there's a .NET wrapper that lets you accomplish your messaging goals easily from your Framework-based code. To illustrate the use of the wrapper, the author builds a messaging application, sends MSMQ messages over the Web, and discusses messaging security.

How to create a WCF service that is in compliance with Soap Messages with Attachments

Hi, I know that there are many ways to send attachments, but unfortunately i need to create a webservice that follows the "SOAP messages with Attachments" specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/SOAP-attachments). This specification can be sumarrizing as and Multipart MIME message that groups a Soap Envelope and more files as attachmens in differnent MIME parts, such as SOAP with Attachments MIME envelope -Root Body MIME part --Soap Envelope ---Soap Header ---Soap Body - Mime Part 2 --First File - Mime part 3 --Second File .... Hopefully that structure can be helpful,otherwise you can easily check in the specification page. I don't know how to do that: - Creating a Contract with one parameter that will a Message that will encapsules all the information, but this means that I need to create all the MIME parts manually. and lqater in the client I'll have to split the information and deserialized in objects. Any help would be great, Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers

Disallow Direct Access To Files



Here is my dilema, on my site i have a WordPress Audio player (http://wpaudioplayer.com/standalone) that plays my mp3's.

It loads the Mp3's in by javascript...example below:

       AudioPlayer.embed("audioplayer_7", { soundFile: "/Files/Music/[name of file].mp3" });

This file name is clearly visible in the browser source. Not a problem, however this means that any user can legitimately browse to the file directly and download it.

Now i still need the mp3 player (which is flash) to have access to the file but if a user was to try accessing the file directly, they would not be allowed access to it.

I am not sure how to go about this, i am circling the idea of a httphandler but not sure if this is sufficiant to stop the direct access to the file.

Any help would be appreciated

Secure It: WS-Security and Remoting Channel Sinks Give Message-Level Security to Your SOAP Packets


As more organizations adopt XML-based Web Services, the need for message-level security has become evident. WS-Security, now supported in the Microsoft .NET Framework, addresses this need. Using the WS-Security framework, developers can implement channel sinks to intercept Remoting messages as they pass through the .NET Remoting infrastructure. The sink can read the message, change it, and pass it along. During this process, the message can be signed for added security. This article explains how to implement a Remoting channel sink that will modify the Remoting message by including a UserName token in the header, then sign the body using the token.

House of Web Services: Accessing Raw SOAP Messages in ASP.NET Web Services


Web Services exchange XML messages. Most of today's Web Service toolkits do their best to hide this fact from developers, by exposing a Web Service's behavior as method invocations against objects instead.

How to Add Custom SOAP Headers Into The Server Response Message in WSE3.0?

Hi Dear All, Assuming I am the service provider, may i know how many ways are there to insert a custom header into the server response message? So far I tried several ways, and it can be done in custom SoapFilters (by playing with SOAPEnvelope object), and SoapExtension (SOAPMessage object). Just wondering if this could be done at web service class by specifying a SOAPHeader attribute, just like adding a SOAPHeader into the SOAP request message at consumer side? If can, it might be much smarter than SoapFilter and SoapExtension.   Thanks in advance!   Best Regards, Charles

Am I going about this in the right way ?basically my webmethod will have 2 input parameters, some xml and an object, but I just cant get it to work. Can anyone help ?

FaultContract - can I use non soap fault messages

I want to use the FaultContract functionality for reporting errors but I want to completely define the message on the wire (as I do in the MessageContract) - I do NOT want the message to appear as a soap fault on the wire.  Is that possible?  I guess what I really want is for a contract to have two possible results, the normal successful result and a specialist exception result.  This is for something to go through an XML guard and a soap fault doesn't meet the IDL spec.   I'd be grateful for any pointers   Thanks

Internet Explorer problems downloading files from IIS 6 - Response.AddHeader("content-disposition",

I'm retrieving a file from my DB, storing in a Byte[] variable. In my local development environment, Visual Studio 2008, the file download works great in all browsers (IE, Firefox, and Chrome).But, when running on external IIS 6.0 web server, IE 7 and IE 8 browsers will not properly download files: the indicated file name seems to default to my ASPX page "[template].aspx" , not the file name that I specify in the Response.AddHeader(...).  FIREFOX and CHROME download all files, all MIME types JUST FINE with the correct file name. This problem occurs only in IE? (Several clients all tested with same results.) Is there a disconnect between IE and IIS 6.0 in how the response headers are interpreted? Is there another header attribute needed for IE?My code:    Response.Clear();    Response.ClearHeaders();    Response.Buffer = true;    Response.ContentType = f.MimeType;    Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=\"" + f.Name + "." + f.Extension+"\"");    Response.Charset = "";    Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);    Response.BinaryWrite(f.File);    Response.End();Thanks.
