Error while accessing a WCF REST service from iphone

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

Hi All, I have a WCF Rest service which gets a image file as a byte array[]. It works fine if the client is .net. if the client is iphone[objective c] it says the following error. The incoming message has an unexpected message format 'Raw'. The expected message formats for the operation are 'Xml', 'Json'. This can be because a WebContentTypeMapper has not been configured on the binding. See the documentation of WebContentTypeMapper for more details. The service has been hosted secure site in iis.Please help me to resolve the issue. my method is

public string ImageData(byte[] imgfile) {

 long ll = imgfile.Length; byte[] dBytes = imgfile;

 Stream imgStream = new MemoryStream(dBytes, 0, dBytes.Length);

Bitmap bmpImage = new Bitmap(imgStream);

 bmpImage.Save(@"C:\1.jpeg", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg); return true; }

Error while accessing web service


I have tested the example showed on MSDN for accessing a SharePoint List Web Service in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms772599(v=office.12).aspx

Build is OK. However, I get the following error while running try block.

Any ideas?

When accessing SharePoint or Central Administration 3.0 a "503 Service Unavailable" error is returne

I am running a MOSS 2007 server in a test environment. I have been off building other aspects of the environment, but I come back today and notice that SharePoint is no longer working. Whenver I try to access it or the Central Administration area I recieve a "503: Service Unavailable" error.

I have also notice that after an IISRESET that the applications pools that are associated with the SharePoint sites (Extranet, Intranet, Sharepoint - 21075, and Central Administration fail to start on their own. I can start the manually. They are all running under the DOMAIN\Administrator account (as are ALL of the SharePoint related features. I know, I know, but that is what the requestor of this test environment requested).

Additionally the following error codes are logged (NOTE: These are translated from German):

Event ID: 6641
Source: Office Sharepoint Server
The SSP timer Mandate for import distribution lists did not execute.

Reason: Registration failed: The user does not have the required logon on this computer.

Event ID: 2424

Accessing JAVA REST service from .NET


We were given sample Java client code to invoke a Java web service hosted by partner and here is Java client code snippet that I am trying to simulate in .NET

httpClient=new HttpClient();

httpClient.getHostConfiguration().setHost(new URI(hostname));
PostMethod authpost = new PostMethod("<loginPath>");
// Prepare login parameters
NameValuePair userid = new NameValuePair(userNameField, username);
NameValuePair passwordid = new NameValuePair(passwordField, password);
NameValuePair returnURLid = new NameValuePair(returnURLField, returnURL);
authpost.setRequestBody(new NameValuePair[] {userid,passwordid, returnURLid });
System.out.println("Login form post: " + authpost.getStatusLine().toString());
// release any connection resources used by the method

GetMethod getMethod = new GetMethod("<business_method_path>");
String responseXML = getMethod.getResponseBodyAsString();

In the code above, same httpClient object is used to invoke a POST method and send some aut

Secured web with unauthenticated users accessing a service


hi all,

I have a following configuration:

~/ui/login.aspx, ~/ui/page1.aspx, ~/service/main.asmx

access to web is secured using:

<authentication mode="Forms">
  <forms loginUrl="~/ui/login.aspx" timeout="10" />
<deny users="?" />

but I want to allow unauthenticated users to issue (possibly limited set of) a query to the service (e.g. to display service version on the login page using service call ~/service/main.asmx/GetFullVersion). I'm able to do it locally, but on the server there is a problem and the service cannot be queried. I tried to set

  <location path="~/service/main.asmx/GetFullVersion">
<allow users="*"/>


  <location path="~/service/main.asmx">
<allow users="*"/>

A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

Looking for a simple Service and Console Client REST sample implementing BASIC authentication


Does anyone know of a C# code sample demonstrating WCF REST services and console test client with OperationContracts (GET and POST) implementing mutiple paramaters using BASIC authentication? Also, perhaps, using Fiddler as a test client as well? I have searched high and low for something like this, but have not had any success.

Multiple services in REST Collection WCF Service?


After I create a "REST Collection WCF Service" project, it contains one service "service.svc". Can I add multiple services to this project? There must be a way to do so. Otherwise, it does not make sense to create one project for each service.


My question is how to add a new service to an existing "REST Collection WCF Service" project?


Thanks a lot.

"Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try ..."


i have a problem with search function where everytime i search any file/doc the error message "Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information." occurred. I realized that there are items in central admin but it is "not available" in my site. I already follow several guides that had been provided in this forum but still the same. Even, i already create new SSP and configure the search scope, content source and also crawling. 

FYI, i used Microsoft Sharepoint 2007. 

Hope anyone could help me to solve this problem. Thanks.

RDL Rendering (500 Internal Server) Error at Sharepoint Integrated Reporting Service


I have a serious problem that cannot be solved by googling around the keywords below:
sharepoint, moss 2007, reporting service, ssrs 2008, rendering, internal server error, ....

The error is;

"An error occurred during client rendering. The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. "

Everything is O.K.;

* When I render the report from the REPORTSERVER (http://localhost/ReportServer)
* When the reports are scheduled to be sent by the reporting service (planned via MOSS 2007) 

But if I open (render) the RDL file from the sharepoint REPORTS LIBRARY interface, all of the reports fail with that internal error message above. 

It is weird also that parametrized reports are displayed without errors although the parameters are queried from a sql dataset. But I got the error when rendering the report after I've chosen a parameter  and order "apply/report"...

Possible causes how I met that error may be;

After I have installed (then uninstalled) AJAX extensions
After I have re-configured IIS Web Service Extensions list items

Possible solution alternatives I've found;

I've found a solution on MSDN replying a similar issue with an ideal cause of the error but an evreka answer but no sol

Error Consuming Web Service - Unable to import binding xxx from namespace ...


In VS2008 / C# / ASP.NET 3.5, I wrote a test web service app. Here is an extract from the code:

namespace emed.MathWebService
    /// <summary>
    /// Sample Math Services For Learning Web Services Deployment
    /// </summary>
    [WebService(Namespace = " http://localhost/MathService")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    public class MathService
        public float Add(float a, float b)
            return a + b;


I have published this to an IIS virtual directory named MathService, and when I try to launch it with the URL http://localhost/mathservice/MathService.asmx is works fine and displays all the operations (Add, Subtract etc) in the service.

I then created a test web application in VS2008 (named WebSvcTe
