WCF Services and accessing methods

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi. I have been developing for a while now but I am new to WCF.  I have been reading a lot about them and having a go, but I just have a simple question and I am hoping a stupid one that I don't need to worry about.  If I create a webservice and put it on a hosting server for my website, how can I ensure that nobody else can access the webservice? Is it possible for them to simply navigate to for example: http://myWebsite.com/myService/Service1.svc and access the methods for themselves?

House of Web Services: Accessing Raw SOAP Messages in ASP.NET Web Services


Web Services exchange XML messages. Most of today's Web Service toolkits do their best to hide this fact from developers, by exposing a Web Service's behavior as method invocations against objects instead.

.NET Web Services: Web Methods Make it Easy to Publish Your App's Interface over the Internet


Web Services are a great way to accept and manage contributions to a public clip art library, digital music catalog, or corporate knowledge base. Since the SOAP interface to a Web method operates over HTTP, contributors can easily publish content any time, from anywhere across the Internet. However, accepting binary content and managing content metadata through SOAP over HTTP presents Web Service developers with some interesting design decisions. This article discusses three ways to enable content publishing using Web methods.

New Directions in Redirection: Microsoft Internet Information Services 5.0 Provides Two New Methods


Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 provides several enhancements to its support for ASP-based Web development, including two new server-side redirection methods: Server.Transfer and Server.Execute. Rather than redirecting requests with a round-trip to the client, these new methods can be used to transfer requests directly to an ASP file without ever leaving the server. While this functionality doesn't replace the Response.Redirect method used by IIS 4.0, you can take advantage of it to implement better application flow control mechanisms and to handle errors more efficiently. The different redirection options are described, along with some tips and tricks for implementing them on your own site.

The Decorator Pattern & Extension Methods

The decorator pattern provides a formal way to add new functionality to an existing type, without sub-classing. First question: What is wrong with classical inheritance? In and of itself, nothing is wrong with the good old Is-A relationship. It is very common to derive a new class from an existing base class in order to override a few virtual members, and add a pinch of new functionality.

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.
