WCF client to access Java SOAP server 1.2

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

To all WCF experts out there... Maybe you can shed some light on the following questions.  Any pointers regarding WCF client to non-Microsoft implementation on .NET Framework 3.x will be appreciated too.  Thanks in advance.

  1. I already have an object that can serialize to a valid XML input message; minus soap specific elements.  If I pass it directly, it will fail because the object type is so different than type generated by svcutil.exe.  What's the best way of passing this to the service?  I know when I serialize my object, and the one created by svcutil to XML, they are identical. 
  2. I guess this should be the first question.  To access a non-microsoft SOAP 1.2 service, is WCF the way to go on .NET Framework 3.0/4.0?
  3. Reference:  Are there any good books/sites that you can refer regarding WCF client (specially non-Microsoft implementation)?  I've seen so many WCF service, but very less focus on the client.

SOAP: Using ATL Server to Build an Asynchronous SOAP Client in Unmanaged C++


SOAP opens up a new world of Web Services, letting you make function calls across a network or the Internet. But this flexibility creates new problems when your app needs to wait for calls to return from halfway around the world. What you need is an asynchronous SOAP client that takes advantage of threading to continue execution while waiting for calls over the wire. This article covers the basics of building such a client with ATL.

Migration of DSN use for SQL Server access from Windows SP-3 clients to Windows 7 64 bit client

We have numerous apps which use a named DSN using SQLSRV32.dll for an ODBC connection from our Windows XP-Pro SP3 32 bit machines client access to remote windows 2003 based SQL servers (mix of 2005 and 2008).  On migrating to Windows 7, this dll will not allow the apps to use the newly constructed DSN (using SQLSRV32.dll with ODBC), even though a test connection is sucessful (abbeit much slower than seen on the XP-Pro machines).  What must I use on the Windows 7 64 bit machine to allow a DSN to be used by the migrated apps?  - I have descerned through Google that WDAC is now the tool to use, but I am cluless how to use it. - The expectations from the app on the Windows XP-Pro and on the Windows 7 64 bit machines is to use a DSN to connect to SQL servers on Windows 2003. I would appreciate any advice, and thanks!

WCF MTOM Client calling Java Webservice - Issues with File attachment Content ID encoded in SOAP mes

Hello,I'm having difficulty calling a MTOM enabled Java based web service that accepts an file as input..NET appeats to be generating a SOAP message where the reference to the binary part of the message is an encoded url.For Example:  <inc:Include href="cid:http%3A%2F%2Ftempuri.org%2F1%2F634000265217257868" xmlns:inc="http://www.w3.org/2004/08/xop/include"/>In fact, the Content ID defined in the SOAP message, looks nothing like the actual Content ID of the actual message part.Content-ID: <http://tempuri.org/1/634000265217257868=2787915398744@soapui.org>The service is invoked and executed on the java webserver...but the data element appears to be null.I do not believe the java web server understands the reference in the SOAP message because it is encoded....Or...perhaps it's because the Content-ID attribute has extract stuff on it.I'm working with a custom MTOM encoder in WCF....is there a way to generate your own Content ID or tell .NET not to encode the url?My frustration with .NET has reached an all new level with this project...Any help would be greatly appreciated.Here the SOAP message that is being generated:<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:ns="http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/cmis/messaging/200901" xmlns:ns1="http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/cmis/core/200901&q

Return of the Rich Client: Code Access Security and Distribution Features in .NET Enhance Client-Sid


Rich clients employ many of the features and conveniences of the operating system they run on, and the list of these features has been growing since the dawn of the PC. But as apps have migrated to the Web, the trend towards increasing client-side functionality has ground to a virtual halt. There are several reasons for this; chief among them are security and deployment problems. But that's all about to change. With the .NET Framework, you can participate in building the distributable rich client of the future. In this article, the author enumerates the pertinent features of .NET that will allow you to build safe, easily deployable controls. The features discussed include managed code, code access security, versioning control, Windows Forms classes, and isolation.

SQL and Outlook: Enable Database Access and Updates Through Exchange and Any E-mail Client


Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.
