Develop a Web Service: Up and Running with the SOAP Toolkit for Visual Studio

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

The new Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Toolkit for Visual Studio 6.0 provides the infrastructure for developers to build, expose, and consume Web services. With a few exceptions that are outlined in the toolkit, the SOAP Toolkit complies with the SOAP version 1.1 specification. It includes the Remote Object Proxy Engine (ROPE), a Service Description and Code Generation Wizard, and code that provides ASP and ISAPI reference implementations of SOAP listeners. This article describes the tools and the object model of the SOAP Toolkit, and then demonstrates ASP and ISAPI implementations of a functional Web service using this toolkit.

Windows CE: Develop Handheld Apps for the .NET Compact Framework with Visual Studio .NET


Smart Device Extensions (SDE) for Visual Studio .NET allow programmers to develop applications for the .NET Compact Framework, a new platform that maintains many of the features of the .NET Framework in a version optimized for handheld devices. This article shows how SDE provides access through Visual Studio .NET to a variety of .NET classes for devices running Windows CE, including classes for creating user interfaces. Data access classes and Web Services for the .NET Compact Framework are also explained. Following that overview, a sample Web Service called XMLList is built. Then the UI-the XMLList client-side application-is created.

Using Web Service in SharePoint 2010 Standard Web part using Visual Studio 2010

Hi All,               Have an issue with  Web service in calling  by SharePoint 2010 Standard Web part using Visual Studio 2010. If you can tell where I went wrong or tips to solve this would be great for me. What I have done is like this.. 1) Created new 'Empty SharePoint' project : as Farm solution 2) Added Web parts 3) Trying to add Web Service : There was no option for adding Web Service , so added as 'Add new Service' , this created entries in app.config file 4) ServiceName : shown as name space  (what  I'm  expecting is as Global  object with all methods ) 5) Created Object of namespace.ServiceName.ServiceSoapClient and tried to call one of it's method 6) Build and deployed 7) While viewing that web part it is showing an error as [InvalidOperationException: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'SerialKeyService.ServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.]         Error in detail : [TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.]   at System.RuntimeTypeHandle.CreateInstance(RuntimeType t

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

AJAX Control Toolkit in Visual Studio

Hello everybody.I want to include AJAX Control Toolkit in my project currently designing of Visual Studio 2008. I found a link Installing AJAX Control Toolkit in Visual Studio 2008 . It is helpful. I want to know anything else shall I have to do for enabling AJAX Control. Is there anything should I write in web.config file or in that .aspx file? I have to submit my project in college so can enabling AJAX Control in that project by including files, create any problem on execution of the project on AJAX Control not enabled machine of my college? Or the reference files will going to be saved in bin folder?Any information will be very helpful to me.Also there is a paragraph in last section of the instruction, here it is :Now we are able to add any of these controls to our web applications. However, we must still remember the ScriptManager, as all of these controls are AJAX-enabled. I don't understand this line "However, we must still remember the ScriptManager, as all of these controls are AJAX-enabled."Thank you.

Toolkit and Visual Studio 2010

Has anyone else run into problems installing the controls into the Toolbox? I followed the instructions and nothing happened, no error nothing at all. I have used these in the past with 2005 and 2008 and did experience issues back then too.Thanks,Sam

Help deploying Windows Service to 64bit Server usinf Visual Studio 2008 Setup Project?

I have a Windows Service I created a while back for our Win2003/2008 32bit Servers, written in Visual Studio 2008, deployed via a VS2k8 Setup Project.  Everything works great, installs fine, and runs as it should.  There is no platform dependent code, it's all straight-up .Net Framework stuff, so we thought it should deploy to a Win2008 64bit Server just fine.  But this seems not to be the case.

When I try to install the Service as is on the 64bit machine, the service and associated DLL's are installed to the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder, but when you right click the Service itself and look at the properties, it is trying to find the .exe file in the "C:\Windows\System32" folder. This difference prevents the service from running, obviously.

If I change the Setup Project settings, set the Target Platform to "x64" and change in the File System screen to use the "System (64-bit) Folder" placing the files in there and re-run the setup.exe on the server.... now the files are correctly installed to the "C:\Windows\System32" folder, but the Service itself is not 'installed', that is it *does not* show up in the Services Manager.

Just for the giggles of it I tried to manually install the service using 'installutil.exe' in the .Net Fra

Cannot consume WCF Data Service from Visual Studio 2008


Hi all

I created  two similar oData services:

1. ADO.NET Data Service with Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET 3.5 SP

2. WCF Data Service using Visual Studio 2010

and they both work in IE.

I can make a Service Reference to the first one with VS2008.

The problem is when I try to use Visual Studio 2008 as a client and I try to add a Service Reference for the WCF Data Service made with Visual Studio 2010:
an Error (Details) occurred while attempting to find services at 'http://.............Myservice.svc'

and the Detail is:

Parameter name: edmxDocument

the xml of the 2 services is perfectly the same (with the exception of the url in the "base" attribute in the service node)

Any tip?




Web Service consumed by Soap Toolkit 3.0 (Excel 2003)

I have a simple Web Service returning a single DataTable DataSet. All goes fine when all the columns are different of Char or char type (c#). When the DataTable has a char type column (not the very last one), at the client side I obtain a vbObjectError = -2147221504 (80040000HEX) (Error parsing XML, line ... position ... ). Once testing the the XML NodeList (as my client will see the DataSet) I saw that all the c# types are descibed by simple element descriptor nodes (with a type attribute) except for the char type having at the same level a typeless element and is structured as a string with length 1 restriction. This result I cannot avoid because .Net Framwork 3.5 serialize my data set, and the missparsing as well because it is included in Microsoft Office Soap Type Library v3.0.

Need urgent help ...
Thanks in advance
