WCF Service find current url?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

 I have a WCF Service that loads a file located on a local web server. How can I load that file based off an Uri? So I don't have to hard code in the address? So instead of doing a XmlDocument.Load(http://mywebaddress/ConfigFile/config.xml); I could put in or find the current URL of webservice then add the parameter. Sort of like this: XmlDocument.Load("~/ConfigFile/config.xml"); That way if I'm publishing or Debugging it's all one file in the same exact location.

SPView query to find if the current user belongs to a Group


HI All,

I´m trying to write a query for a list view that should return all items if the current user belong to a group. If the user doesn´t belongs to this group, no items should be returned.

So far, I could find many equal examples about using the CAML Membership element in a comparison with an AssignetTo field. But not making a comparison between the current user and a specific Sharepoint Group.

Any suggestions, please?

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

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

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.
