Is there any other way which can offer more flexibility,  or make implementation loosely coupled ?

change the PHP page with WCF service on Servers only, without chnging code on the calling client sid

  

Hi

I need to change the PHP page with WCF service, but the problem is that many of our clients are sending(usig POST) large stream data like binary files to our PHP website, now we are upgrading our system and moving towards wcf services,

The problem is that we want our clients to only change URL, and do not need to change any code in their calling mechanism or no need to create proxy on their cliend side. We simply change php to wcf services on our Servers only. Our clients are using .net 2.0 client application. Is there any way to do this. or Is this possible ?

One thing which I get from internet is use Rest based wcf services.

Have anybody some example or idea to accomplish my task.

Zee


Problem to obtain client IP on web service

  

Friends,

I'm having problems to obtain the client IP on web service. Here's my scenario:

One server with Windows 2003, hosting the web service using .Net Framework 2.0, with IP 10.0.2.50 and host name ServerTransaction.
Other server with Windows 2003, hosting a web application using .Net Framework 2.0, that consuming the web service on  ServerTransaction, with IP 10.0.2.51 and host name ServerApplication.
Many other computers on the local network (IPs: 10.0.2.80, 10.0.2.81, 10.0.2.82, ...) acessing the web application on ServerApplication.

On the code of the web service I've tried to use HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FORR"), but always I can only get the IP of ServerApplication (10.0.2.51).

Any idea or tip?


Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

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.


VS2005 calling VS2010 asmx service returns empty string

  

Anyone have any experience with this?

We are using VS 2005 for the front end, and vs 2010 for the web services part (asmx), not wcf yet.

 

Web service works just like the vs2005 when run locally, no problems.

 

Connecting to it from a test app returns an empty string. Connecting to a 2005 app doesn't!

Anyone run into this before or have a suggestion? Surely vs 2005 can connect to web services from a later version?

 

Thanks

Calling an asp.net web service from jQuery

  
As I have post it in earlier post that jQuery is one of most popular JavaScript library in the world amongst web developers Lets take a example calling ASP.NET web service with jQuery . You will see at the end of the example that how easy it is to call a web service from the jQuery. Let's create a simple Hello World web service. Go to your project right click->Add -> New Item and select web service and add a web service like following.   Now modify the code of web service like following. [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")][WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)][System.ComponentModel.ToolboxItem(false)]// To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line. [System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService]public class HelloWorld : System.Web.Services.WebService{ [WebMethod] public string PrintMessage() { return "Hello World..This is from webservice"; }} Here please make sure that [System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService] is un commented because this attribute is responsible for allowing web service to be called by Client side scripts. Now to call this  web service from jquery we have to include jQuery Js like following. I am already having in my project so i don't need to include in project just need to add script tag like following. <script type="t

calling a web service on a remote server from an ASPX page

  
hi, I want to call a web service on a remote server. I've done "add web reference" in my project, and VS2005 has created the .discomap and .WSDL in the App_Web_Reference folder. When I try add the namespace representing the web server (the name I created when I added the web reference) by "using XXXXX;" the code does not compile because XXXXX is not defined. Have I missed any steps? thanks, -me

Error in consuming web service using WCF client

  
Hi, I have consumed an external webservice in my client application using WCF. And every thing works great in my Dev box(XP with IIS5.1) But when the same application is moved to Prod server(Win Server 2003 with IIS6.0) it fails. Below is the exception caught: There was no endpoint listening at http://MyExternalWebServiceUrlWithSessionId could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. And the InnerException is: Unable to connect to the remote server My Config file has the below settings:<system.serviceModel> <bindings> <basicHttpBinding> <binding name="Default_Binding" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferSize="65536" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="65536" messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" transferMode="Buffered" useDefaultWebProxy="true"> <readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringContentLength="8192" maxArrayLength="16384" maxBytesPerRead="4096" maxNameTableCharCoun

calling a web service on a remote server from a ASPX page (web site project VS2005)

  
HI,I am maintaining a web site project in VS2005 and have to call a new web service on a remote server. I've done add web reference, and created the .wsdl and .discomap files in the app_webReference folder.  When I try to create a object representing the web service in the code ( wsnamespace.serviceName ws = new wsnamespce.serviceName(); ) the code wouldn't compile.The web site project is already calling other web services. When I right click on the type representing the web service and "go to definition" it takes me to a proxy class (derived from of course SoapHttpClientProtocol) in the metadata. I think this is what's missing for  the new web service i'm trying to call. Have I missed any steps?Thanks in advance.-me

Error calling WCF service that is returning list.".Debugging resource strings are unavailable ......

  
Ok.this is just making me frustrated... Here is step by step of what I am trying to do (& not able to) 1. I am calling WCF service hosted in a SharePoint 2010 site from a silverlight app in same domain (So no cross doman I guess). 2. I use Linq to Sharepoint for querying the DB. 3. I am having a list "machines" in Sharepoint 2010 that is having a lookup column from Other list called "part" 4. My WCF method GetAllMachines() works perfectly well when it skips the lookup column "partname" & returns List of type machineitem. 5. But problem occurs when I add machineitemobject.parts.partsname in my Linq to Sharepoint query . My service gives the error not found Async_ExceptionOccurred] Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable." 6. Note that return type of my Method is List<machinesitem> 7. The point to note here is that I use SPMETAL tool to generate the LINQ class that maps the lists . So When I try to query the lookup column it tries to add List item of the type class & that is what causing the error. Is it because I am not using datacontract in my service (but it returns the strings & all private members of machines list e.g. name,title etc) Is it making the attribute Serialisable will solve the error ??? I am kind of lost in it ...Plss help!!   Thanks

.NET Client and Java Web Service Interoperability

  
I have a .net client that consumes an operation on a java based web service that appears to work accept for an issue with passing Boolean values back to the service in the soap message. Any member of the complex type that are defined as Boolean in the service contract will not be present in the soap message generated from the client even though they are set in the code. Sample Client Code: UpdateChecklistItemStatusPortTypeClient     proxy = new UpdateChecklistItemStatusPortTypeClient();     updateChecklistItemStatusReq request = new updateChecklistItemStatusReq(); request.ouid =   "P000122112"; request.applicationId =   "00000032"; request.adminFunction =   "ADMA"; request.checklistItemTypeCode =   "UHSTRN"; request.ceebCode =   "052046"; request.transcriptTerm =   "FINAL"; request.transcriptScores =   true;     updateChecklistItemStatusRsp response = new updateChecklistItemStatusRsp(); response = proxy.UpdateChecklistItemStatusOp(request); Client Soap Message Generated: <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">   <s:Body xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
