Looking for a simple Service and Console Client REST sample implementing BASIC authentication


Does anyone know of a C# code sample demonstrating WCF REST services and console test client with OperationContracts (GET and POST) implementing mutiple paramaters using BASIC authentication? Also, perhaps, using Fiddler as a test client as well? I have searched high and low for something like this, but have not had any success.

Multiple services in REST Collection WCF Service?


After I create a "REST Collection WCF Service" project, it contains one service "service.svc". Can I add multiple services to this project? There must be a way to do so. Otherwise, it does not make sense to create one project for each service.


My question is how to add a new service to an existing "REST Collection WCF Service" project?


Thanks a lot.

Serializing Linq to Entities for use in a REST Service

What would be the best approach to send data retrieved from Linq to Entities over a rest service? For example, if you have a Linq to Entities class, say Products from the Northwind database. I want to return a subset of the Products (based on a query on the model) back through a service. First a retrieve a List<Product> from the context, and then i need to serialize the data and send it over the wire. If I use the exact Linq to Entities class, then there is so much "garbage" that it either fails outright (from a circular reference) or you are wasting bandwith. What is a design to overcome this? Create POCO objects for each linq to entities class you want to send and create custom code to tranform each object in the list to the POCO object? This is the only way I can see doing it, although it would be very tedius to create and maintain (unless some custom code generation was created). Is there a better approach? clients

With Anonymous access disabled, is there any way to use an AJAX-enabled WCF Service?

I have a website where anonymous access is disabled but I want to user an ajax-enabled WCF service. Configuring the service's binding security to use "TransportCredentialOnly" with clientCredentialType="Windows" seems like the obvious thing to do; indeed, many posts in various places suggest this approach. Unfortunately, however, it doesn't work. I always get the error "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service." How can I configure the service to function correctly. I'm running IIS 7.5 with .Net framework 4.0. Thanks.

System.ComponentModel.DescriptionAttribute not showing up in REST service

I am trying to set the description for a REST WCF service, but it doesn't seem to be working. Code is: [AspNetCompatibilityRequirements(RequirementsMode=AspNetCompatibilityRequirementsMode.Allowed)]     [ServiceBehavior(InstanceContextMode=InstanceContextMode.PerCall)]     [WebDispatchFormatterConfiguration("application/xml")]     [WebDispatchFormatterMimeType(typeof(WcfRestContrib.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.Formatters.PoxDataContract), "application/xml", "text/xml")]     [WebDispatchFormatterMimeType(typeof(WcfRestContrib.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.Formatters.DataContractJson), "application/json")]     [WebDispatchFormatterMimeType(typeof(WcfRestContrib.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.Formatters.FormUrlEncoded), "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")]     public class PublicAppointmentSchedulerSvc : IPublicAppointmentScheduler     {         IPublicAppointmentScheduler impl = new PublicAppointmentScheduler();         [WebDispatchFormatter]         [Description("Immediate or callback contact request")]         [WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "InitiateContact", Method = Verbs.Post)]  &n

GoDaddy + WCF REST Service

I am newbie when it comes to developing a WCF REST Service. I have been reading up and have worked through hands-on labs/watched videos by Ron Jacobs to help me get a hold of WCF REST.  I have had no problems running my web service on my localhost. However it is now time to upload my "WCF Service Application" (not WCF Library) to GoDaddy's servers and this is where I am running into issues. As per Ron Jacobs tutorials I have removed my endpoints from my web.config file and the markup code in my .svc file now reads: <%@ ServiceHost Language="C#" Debug="true" Service="DealService.Service" CodeBehind="Service.svc.cs" Factory="System.ServiceModel.Activation.WebServiceHostFactory"%> I proceeded to compile and then upload my code to GoDaddy and now am trying to access the web service, but am receiving the following error: Server Error in '/' Application. Parser Error Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.  Parser Error Message: The CLR Type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.WebServiceHostFactory' could not be loaded during service compilation. Verify that this type is either defined in a source file located in the application's \App

ASP.Net Client for Php REST Service

 I am writing some code in an asp application that needs to communicate with a PHP REST Service. I have 2 questions. 1.  In my data variable I have to put the POST parameters.  If I needed to put reserved characters like & or ? into the string is there an escape character I can use?  Or would encoding it work?  Or would it totally depend on how the web service works? 2.  Is the code I am using the usual way to make a POST connection to a REST service?  Or is there an easier/faster way? Below is the code I am using Dim uri As New Uri("http://help.domain.com/api/index.php?method=request.create") Dim data As String = "tNote=Testing Code&sEmail=test@test.com" If uri.Scheme = uri.UriSchemeHttp Then Dim request As HttpWebRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create(uri) request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Post request.ContentLength = data.Length request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" Dim writer As New StreamWriter(request.GetRequestStream) writer.Write(data) writer.Close() Dim oResponse As HttpWebResponse = request.GetResponse() Dim reader As New StreamReader(oResponse.GetResponseStream()) Dim tmp As String = reader.ReadToEnd() oResponse.Close()

Access denied to Search Service Application

I just "upgraded" my installation of SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express 2010.  During the installation, I was able to access and configure the Search Service Application. However, a day later, I cannot access the application management page: I get an access denied error.  I am the farm administrator, so supposedly I am supposed to have access to the management page.  I've also tried adding my login to the "Full Control" group of the Search Application; it gives me the same error.  It appears that the only account that can access the administration page is the service/system account.  Obviously this would not be ideal. I've tried looking around for logs to see if anything is amiss, but there appears to be nothing logged. What gives?  How do I fix it?

WCF Service Unable to Access Personal Certificate Store Unless Service Account is Logged In

I created a WCF service that has a method which makes a call to a SOAP web service over the internet. In order to make a call to the SOAP web service, it requires that an X.509 certificate be sent with the HttpWebRequest. The X.509 certificates are loaded in the Personal and Trusted Certificate store of the account which the service is running under. When the service account is logged into the server, everything works just fine. However, when the service account is not physically logged onto the server, it has problems loading up the X.509 certificate and fails authentication when trying to make the HttpWebRequest. I am new to WCF services so I don't even know where to start looking. Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance.

Search Server Express 2010 - Access Denied when attempting to manage Search Service Application or P

I first noticed this error with the Search Service Application when I was no longer able to use the search portal, but have since noticed the issue with the PowerPoint Service Application.  When I navigate in Central Administration to either the "Farm Search Administration" or the "Manage service applications" pages and attempt to manage the "Search Service Application", I get this error: Error: Access Denied  Current User You are currently signed in as:  WHEELERS\MyUserName   Sign in as a different user    I have tried removing the service application and re-adding it, changing the application pool to running under an existing application pool as the farm administrator, as another application pool with the same identity as the primary web application, and as another application pool running under the SP-SearchService identity. The big recent change with SharePoint, aside from fixing the previous issue where I was incorrectly using CNAMEs with Kerberos, was to switch the main web application to claims authentication. That site correctly works with claims based authentication and Kerberos.

PUT method gives error 400 "Bad Request" in WCF REST Service Application
