Deploy Web Service On Different Subdomain

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

We have deployed a web service (ASP.NET 3.5) on http://abc.domain.com and I now want to deploy it instead on http://xyz.domain.com.  Should I be able to just copy the published files from abc.domain.com and copy them to xyz.domain.com, and then change the identity section in the webconfig for the dns value? 

Is there something else that needs to be configured if we wanted to have both web services deployed?

Deploy XBAP application with WCF Service Reference into multiple environments

Hi, we have a multiple environment setup (local, Development servers, QA servers, prod servers, etc.) and we are building an XBAP application that uses WCF Services to connect to databases.  We code and unit test everything locally and then deploy to our Development servers for more thorough unit testing.  The issue that we are having is that we don't see how to update the deployed XBAP application to use the Development server deployed WCF Service.  The only way we've been able to do this is by having to change the reference on my local machine, complie, and redeploy the XBAP.Question:  How do we configure a deployed XBAP's Service Reference to point to the same service on a different server than what it was originally compiled/deployed with?  (Like in some configuration file...NOTE: but we also don't see a config file after deploying the XBAP.)  We don't want to have to update the Service Reference for QA, Prod, Training, Stage, etc. on our local machines, compile and redeploy every time we need to migrate the application to a new environment.Thanks!

how to deploy web service in sharepoint 2010 using build and deploy ?


in MOSS 2007, I used to use WSPBuilder utility and add web service as web service wspbuilder item to it. It helped to keep everything (WebParts, WebService...etc) together in the same project. All i had to do was WSPBuilder -> Build WSP and then Deploy.

Now in SharePoint 2010, how can i achieve similar scenario to deploy asp.net web service by just few clicks, i dont want to copy the dll to GAC, copy .asmx file etc.. manually.

 Any idea ?



Set Up and deploy a C# windows service app on different servers.


C# Visual Studio 2008 Prof. Ed.  I have created a windows service app.  I can use the Vs installutil to get it running on my Win 7 laptop just fine.  I am looking for the best way for other Admins to install this service on a number of windows web servers.  I would like for these users to simply click on some sort of Setup.exe and have the service be installed (and started) without using the Vs installutil to do this.

I believe I have to add an Install Component as well as a Set Up project to the windows service solution to accomplish this.  The tutorials I have looked at are confusing to me or they are written for other VS versions.

1 - If someone has gone thru this or has a link for me to look at for guidance I would greatly appreciate it.

2 - Can anyone please tell me C# (CSharpWannaB) from a birds eye view what the purpose of each, the Installer and Set_up components are?  Also  how are they dependent on each other as well as the app I am trying to Deploy?


How to Deploy WCF service(developed using VS2010) on IIS7.0 as a RESTful Service.


Hi Guys,


I am new to WCF development, and i just developed a WCF service using VS2010 as per my client's urgent requirement. They need a RestFul service , which reads data from an Publishing ShraePoint Library which has anonymous access. Intially i tried using the sharePoint built in restful service (LISTDATA.SVC), but as it looks for authentication, it is failing to provide data.

Coming back to the problem, I have developed the wcf service and its working well on wcfclient. I need to deploy this on IIS7.0 as a restful service.

Any guidence and leads would be helpful. This is a bit urgent too.

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

WCF Tip: Using Properties in Service Contracts

you'll notice all of the Service Contracts are implemented with interfaces containing only methods. For the longest time I thought that's all that was supported, until I thought about it a little more. In C# land, properties are simply wrappers around a get method and set method, so why wouldn't we be able to use properties in a service contract? Well the answer is we can.

Realizing a Service-Oriented Architecture with .NET

This article is meant to be a practical discussion guide to building a .NET application in a service-oriented architecture. We will consider real-world goals, real-world obstacles, and experience-based solutions. I quickly concede the approaches discussed here are not exhaustive or infallible. This paper is focused on application development, not application integration. We will specifically consider architectural issues and component design issues.

The Potential of Web Services

Web Service for uploading documents into SharePoint

WS UploadService is a web service written for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and is meant for uploading documents into SharePoint. I have just uploaded the zip file to GotDotNet.com so it will take some time before the zip file appears in the list of downloads. For the time being, you can download the zip file from the following location

Creating and Using an ASP.NET Web Service in Visual Web Developer

In addition to letting you create Web pages, Microsoft Visual Studio also lets you create Web services that use ASP.NET XML. Creating a Web service in Visual Studio is similar to creating a Web page. You can also use the Microsoft Visual Web Developer Web development tool to reference and use Web services that are in a Visual Web Developer solution, on your local computer or in a local or external UDDI directory. In this walkthrough, you will create the Web service in one solution and use it in another.

Tasks illustrated in this walkthrough include:

Creating a simple XML Web service in Visual Web Developer.

Creating a separate Web site that uses the Web service.

AutoGenerateSelectButton="False" ignored when using Domain Service


Crosspost from RIA Services forum: http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/t/196466.aspx

I'm creating a Dynamic Data application in VS2010 and have recently switched to using a Domain Service to give greater control over the data presented to the client. I've noticed that the AutoGenerate<Action>Button attributes on my GridView are being ignored. The presence of the Edit and Delete buttons appear to be contingent on the existence of Update and Delete methods on the partial classes autogenerated in the Domain Service, but i'm not seeing how to control the generation of the Select button. Is there a way to control this from within the Domain Service class?

Any framework for creating a job scheduler service?


Just curious to know if there was any official Microsoft code blocks, classes, or such for writing a service that runs other assemblies or WCF services?  That can be configured easily from a web page, pre-coded, for running tasks at certain times on certain recurring intervals?  I've already built one but am open to anything done better- which I'm sure there is.  Thanks!!!

Problem to obtain client IP on web service



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 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 and host name ServerApplication.
Many other computers on the local network (IPs:,,, ...) 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 (

Any idea or tip?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

A lengthy operation in an ASP.NET web service


I've built an ASP.NET web service with .NET 2.0 (an asmx file). I invoke a web service method using Ajax. The method takes a substantial amount of time to execute (5 minutes to 1 hour). I believe it's not a good idea to "hang" the web request for so long.
I'm wondering if the web service method could spawn an additional process which in turn would execute the lengthy operation and notify the web service once the operation is completed.
Are there any good practices regarding this kind of functionality?
