How to properly test SSL enabled web services

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Maybe I am overthinking this a bit but I have a set of SSL enabled third party web services that I want to test. The url for the web service is essentially https://mythirdpartyws.com/webservices/

Do I need to have a certificate setup on my test ASPX page to fully encrypt this connection or am I OK. with simply a simple ASPX page, create my objects from the WSDL and have at it?

It's no exaggeration to say that Web services are revolutionizing application-to-application communication. Web services are already being used extensively in corporate intranet environments and are making their way into commercial use, too.

Access Services are not enabled on the service or ....


I am trying to publish from Microsoft Access to Access Services on Sharepoint 2010. I am getting the following error.

“http://win-rprsdfkljs:33332/team/SitePages/Home.aspx/ “did not respond.  Either the server does not exist, Microsoft Access Services are not enabled on the server, or the server is using an older version of Microsoft Access Services that is not compatible with Access 2010.

I am not sure but I don't think Access Services are enabled because I don't see it listed in the "Service Applications" section of SP 2010 CA.  the list of Items it shows is:

  • Application Discovery and Load Balancer Service Application  Application Discovery and Load Balancer Service Application Started
    Application Discovery and Load Balancer Service Application Proxy_64033b8a-805d-4bb7-9ee7-8cdf22c6f9ac  Application Discovery and Load Balancer Service Application Proxy Started

Test whether Ajax framework loaded properly


Hey fellas,

As most of you probably know, there is a glitch with AJAX, sometimes not loading properly with certain browsers' settings.

I would like to test if it indeed wasn't loaded properly.

I've been suggested on different forum to try this method:

if(page_load) { //if you got here it means that all of javascript functions loaded properly }


I've yet to test it, but I'm not sure how this will work in case that there is an error with AJAX framework loading and javascript freezing.

Could you please suggest another method or insure that the above one does work?

Thanks ahead 


Installing and Uninstalling Services

Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

.NET Web Services Tutorial

Visual Studio .NET makes .NET programming simple and accelerates the development process. It hides a lot of repetitive and configuration details from the user and improves productivity. However, sometimes you would like to program for .NET without using VS .NET; for example, you want to learn .NET framework programming and do not have access to VS .NET or you want to know what is actually going on under the hood.

Writing a Web Service in .NET using VS .NET very is easy. However, it is possible to write Web Services using the plain .NET SDK. I struggled a lot to write Web Services without VS .NET and tried to find help on the Net. There are a lot of examples available for writing Web Services using VS.NET, but you will rarely find any examples of writing Web Services using only the .NET SDK. This article is exactly for this purpose. It looks at Web Services development using the .NET SDK alone.

Why use Web services ?

Before the arrival of Web services, other technologies and architectures existed that met the functionality of today´s web service. Microsoft's version of these technologies, are called Component Object Model (COM), and subsequently Distributed COM (DCOM). WinDNA is a comprehensive term for implementing the above two distributed software development technologies. These technologies typically use the TCP/IP protocol.

CORBA - Common Object Request Broker is a competitor of COM, developed by a consortium of vendors called the Object Management Group. Although these technologies were a breakthrough in distributed computing and served such ends well for at least five years, there were many limitations. Concerning

Integrate Reporting Services with Silverlight and RIA Services
