BasicHttp binding service failing when receiving a message with a To soap header

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

My WCF service is exposed through a basicHttp binding.


When I receive the following message

 <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"> <s:Header> <To s:mustUnderstand="1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/addressing/none">http://biztalk01:81/StuffServices.svc</To> </s:Header> <s:Body> <ns0:GetMyStuff xmlns:ns0="http://example.com/stuff" xmlns:ns1="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/Arrays"> <ns0:inputArray> <ns1:string>80220</ns1:string> </ns0:inputArray> </ns0:GetMyStuff > </s:Body> </s:Envelope>

it gives a fault back, but if I try in soapUI to send the exact same request without the To header (deleting the "<To s:mustUnderstand="1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/addressing/none" >http://biztalk01:81/StuffServices.svc "), then it works fine and returns the correct response.

Do I have any way to make my service handle that request including a To header correctly?

I tried changing my binding to a CustomBinding as described here : http://blog.irm.se/blogs/eric/archive/2008/07/04/WS_2D00_Addressing-and-WCF.aspx

but that only resulted in the IIS worker proc

Adding SOAP header to a SOAP message

Hi guys I am a bit of newbie to SOAP message handling here....
I just want to quote my example here and ask for some assistance...I have been scratching my (bald) head for a couple of days on this and get quite panic....

I have a SQL server Integration Service (SSIS) 2005 package that uses Visual Studio 2005 VB script to consume a third-party WCF Web service in proxy class .  The third party company generated a proxy class in VB for me and I copied and pasted the code into my SSIS VB script task.  For your information, SSIS 2005 is .NET 2.0 framework based.

Here is the beginning of the proxy class:
Namespace abc.xxx.xxxxxxx.Client.xxxxx
    <System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCodeAttribute("wsdl", "2.0.50727.3038"), _
     System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThroughAttribute(), _

Soap Response mising Signature Security element + BasicHttp Binding


Hi All,

I am facing one issue with WCF service.

Issue : Response message not contains Signature Value.

if i use

TransportWithMessageCredential , the response message not contains Signature Value.But if i use only

security mode="Message" this time Response contains signature element.Why it is missing in TransportWithMessageCredential?

My configuration settings are :

Https+Messagelevel Security

Binding :TransportWithMessageCredential

    <binding name="basicHttpEndpointBinding">
     <security mode="TransportWithMessageCredential" >
      <message clientCredentialType="Certificate" />
      <transport clientCredentialType="Certificate" proxyCredentialType ="None" realm =&qu

.Net Frameword 4 SOAP Web Service



We want to upgrade from VS2005 to VS2010. Before we do that, I would like some clarity about some things.


Can we build typical SOAP webservices with the 4 Framework as I could with 2.0?


Would a WCF Service allow me to have both REST/SOAP services in one application?


Is Framework 4 ONLY for REST services and I need to stick to 3.5 for SOAP?


I downloaded the free Web Developer 2010, but I cannot seem to get anywhere trying to figure this out.


Thanks for any input.





Service Station: WSE 3.0, SOAP Transports, and More


It's that time again. Time to answer some of the questions I get on a regular basis. This month I'll look at service orientation and policy-based compatibility, SOAP's transport-neutral design, and Web Services Enhancements (WSE) 3.0.

Secure It: WS-Security and Remoting Channel Sinks Give Message-Level Security to Your SOAP Packets


As more organizations adopt XML-based Web Services, the need for message-level security has become evident. WS-Security, now supported in the Microsoft .NET Framework, addresses this need. Using the WS-Security framework, developers can implement channel sinks to intercept Remoting messages as they pass through the .NET Remoting infrastructure. The sink can read the message, change it, and pass it along. During this process, the message can be signed for added security. This article explains how to implement a Remoting channel sink that will modify the Remoting message by including a UserName token in the header, then sign the body using the token.

DIME: Sending Files, Attachments, and SOAP Messages Via Direct Internet Message Encapsulation


Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a new specification for sending and receiving SOAP messages along with additional attachments, like binary files, XML fragments, and even other SOAP messages, using standard transport protocols like HTTP. In this article, the author explains what DIME is and how it differs from MIME encapsulation. A detailed description of the message format and how it is parsed, as well as working with SOAP and extending it with WSDL, is also included.

Design: Place XML Message Design Ahead of Schema Planning to Improve Web Service Interoperability


Web Services are all about exchanging data in the form of XML messages. If you were about to design a database schema, you probably wouldn't let your tool do it for you. You'd hand-tool it yourself to ensure maximum efficiency. In this article, the author maintains that designing a Web Service should be no different. You should know what kind of data will be returned by Web Service requests and use the structure of that data to design the most efficient message format. Here you'll learn how to make that determination and how to build your Web Service around the message structure.

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


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.

Error Consuming Web Service - Unable to import binding xxx from namespace ...


In VS2008 / C# / ASP.NET 3.5, I wrote a test web service app. Here is an extract from the code:

namespace emed.MathWebService
    /// <summary>
    /// Sample Math Services For Learning Web Services Deployment
    /// </summary>
    [WebService(Namespace = " http://localhost/MathService")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    public class MathService
        public float Add(float a, float b)
            return a + b;


I have published this to an IIS virtual directory named MathService, and when I try to launch it with the URL http://localhost/mathservice/MathService.asmx is works fine and displays all the operations (Add, Subtract etc) in the service.

I then created a test web application in VS2008 (named WebSvcTe

web service soap mapper error question

How to Add Custom SOAP Headers Into The Server Response Message in WSE3.0?

Hi Dear All, Assuming I am the service provider, may i know how many ways are there to insert a custom header into the server response message? So far I tried several ways, and it can be done in custom SoapFilters (by playing with SOAPEnvelope object), and SoapExtension (SOAPMessage object). Just wondering if this could be done at web service class by specifying a SOAPHeader attribute, just like adding a SOAPHeader into the SOAP request message at consumer side? If can, it might be much smarter than SoapFilter and SoapExtension.   Thanks in advance!   Best Regards, Charles

Workflow Service failing on high load

How to set and map a Method in the Service file with endpoint elements and binding elements

Hi all, I have created a service file like OSService.svc in that i have two methods like one is FileUpload and FileDownload for e.g :- [WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "/fileupload/{fileName}" , Method = "POST" )]         [OperationContract]         void FileUpload(string fileName, Stream fileContents); same as Filedownload also. People you may know these methods are inside the interface of service file what you are using i'e i have created a interface as IOSService.cs. So, what i need now is i want to write separate endpoint for FileUpload and Filedownload.Because i want to set separate value for receiveTimeout  and openTimeout for the Fileupload and FileDownload process in binding section in the web.config file itself. The below code was i'm using right now but still i'm not able to the set separate value of endpoint elements in the bindings. EndPoint Section:- <endpoint name = "endPoint1"  address  = "localhost:8000/OSService.svc/" bindingConfiguration = "TransactionalTCP"   binding  = "netTcpBinding"          contract = "IOSService"/> Binding Section:-  <binding name = "TransactionalTCP"  transactionFlow = "true"   /&
