SOAP response XML Exception

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework


   I am using C#.Net 3.5 to consume a Web Service (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/eutils/soap/v2.0/efetch_seq.wsdl) which has been working for me for years. About a week ago I started getting XML errors (see below for exception details) from the XML deserializer before I can even see the response from the Web Service. I used "snoop" (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms176041.aspx) to look at the XML being returned and it looks fine to me. I can even load that XML using XmlDocument.Load and I get no errors that way. Could .Net have different validation for SOAP than other xml documents? I am guessing that there is something bad happening before "snoop" can get it hands on the XML. Any idea what or what to do about

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

Need help in reading Soap request and response on invoking WCF client assembly

Hi All,   I'm new to WCF and i'm using .Net 3.5. I have created a library from the proxy class generated through svcutil. I'm able to succesfully invoke service methods. I was wondering how to capture the request and response soap xmls so that i could render it on browser. If you have any code piece for this kind of problem please share it with me. Regards, Rahul

Soap exception problem

Hello, I'm having a problem with the web service soap exception that im facing. In my if else statement, the web service keeps on throwing soap exception when name was not found. SoapException was caught A user with the account name test.name could not be found --> User Not Found: Could not load profile data from the database. My question is.. Is it possible to handle that in if else statement? Basically the web service returns profile data (ex. name, age, address, in xml format) What i want is if just like this.. If _result isnot nothing then _str = _result else 'do nothing end if Is that possible?    Ã‚®Â©T½¼

set Response to client from SOAP Envelope



I have a WCF client with a custom behavior that intercepts the SOAP request. In BeforeSendRequest in the client I get the SOAP request and pass it to another WS as parameter. The other WS posts the SOAP envelope to the real service that client wants to invoke and returns the SOAP Response back to client. So in BeforeSendRequest the intermediary service returns the real SOAP response as a string back to client.

public object BeforeSendRequest(ref System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message request, IClientChannel channel)
      string soapResponse = myotherProxy.CallService(request.ToString());
      return null;

How can i set the returned SOAP response (soapResponse) as the real response in the client?

Hope someone can help :)

Thank you, Adrya

Fetch raw XML for SOAP request and response inside WCF client


I've got a basis WinForms test harness that's implementing a WCF client (.NET 3.5) which calls a SOAP web service.  I need to be able to write the HTTP request and response and output the two XML documents so I can load them back into WebBrowser controls on the form.

It looks like the way to accomplish this is to implement a custom IClientMessageInspector and an IEndpointBehavior, apply the behavior to the binding and then do the work of capturing the XML inside AfterReceiveReply and BeforeSendRequest (inside IClientMessageInspector implementation).

So my questions are:

1. This seems like a rather exhaustive process, is there a more straightforward approach to doing this? 

2.  If I am on the right path, does anyone have links to related articles/code samples related to this?

3. In what I have coded so far, I am held up trying to get the behaviorExtension to register properly (inside app.config), it looks as if I must register my classes that implement behavior Extenshions in the GAC in order to make use of them, is this true? 

Thanks in advance for taking time away to help a fellow developer!

MTOM-enabled WCF service sends document inline in SOAP response


I'm running a WCF service that has messageEncoding="Mtom" in the config file. The WCF service however, in its SOAP response sends the document as a Base 64 encoded document inline and not as a <xop:include.....> reference outside the SOAP. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Please guide me.

Customize Soap Body Response in WS


Hi all,

I would like to know how i can customize the Soap Message returned by a WebService.

I have searched everywhere and I couldn't find any solution.

I have the following especification of return:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http

List does not exist (0x82000006) SOAP Exception in SP 2010




I am using a web service call to update an List created on subsite.

I have added a web reference List Service by discovering the services available on the main site.


            myListService.UseDefaultCredentials = true ;
            myListService.PreAuthenticate = true ;

            // this will be local to the server we are running ... I should be using properties

            myListService.Url = "http://localhost:8081/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx" ;

            XmlNode  myListView = myListService.GetListAndView("Customers" ,&nb

Invalid use of Response.Filter exception, possible ASP.NET bug


We have an HTTP module that compresses the Response Output (gzip) as followed:

  public class PageModule : IHttpModule
       void app_AcquireRequestState(object sender, EventArgs e)
HttpContext.Current.Response.Filter = new GZipStream(HttpContext.Current.Response.Filter, CompressionMode.Compress);


Now, this code works fine for all the pages EXCEPT a asynchronous IHTTPHandler that serves files. The code for that is:

  public class DownloadHandler : IHttpAsyncHandler
    public IAsyncResult BeginProcessRequest(HttpContext context, AsyncCallback cb, object extraData)
    AsyncProcessorDelegate asyncDelegate = new AsyncProcessorDelegate(ProcessRequest);
            return asyncDelegate.BeginInvoke(context, cb, extraData);

  public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)


When the asynchronous file transfer is done, the .NET engine throws an exception "Invalid use of Response.Filter". Below is the stack:
at System.Web.HttpResponseStreamFilterSink.VerifyState()
at System.Web.HttpResponseStreamFilterSink.Write(Byte[] buffer, Int32 offset, Int32 count)
at System.IO.Compression.DeflateStream.Dispose(Boolean disposing)
at System.IO.Stream.Close()
at System.IO.Compression.GZi

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" />

How to remove multiref- style formatting from the SOAP web service response?



I am about to write a C# web service that will replace an ATL based web service. The existing client (ATL based C++ client) needs to be working with my C# web service without changing the client codes.

Now from the WSDL from ATL web service, I noticed that it uses RPC style, so I have used SoapRpcMethodAttribute for all my web methods. Now the methods that have some out parameters and returns an array, I have taken a snap shot of the response (using Fiddler) from ATL web sever. Which looks like following:



 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> - <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="

Soap cs code from WSDL encoding response problem


I have created a client proxy from a WSDL file with WSDL.exe

i can both send and recieve data fine.

The xmlfile i recieve contains Nordic char data (i see that in fiddler).

ex: <mydata>øæå</mydata>

The problem occurs when the data goes into my client proxy. It looks like they are in utf-8 format (and that will not work with nordic chars).

so the nordic chars are just scrambled.

any way to override this ?

 object[] response = this.Invoke("Query", new object[] { message });
 message = ((elements)(response[1]));
 return (string)(response[0]);




Parsing out result from SOAP Response envelope


Hi guys,

I built the following SOAP Request method and am trying to find out the best way to parse out just the relevant result data from the response below.

    protected void Test_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string oRequest = "";
        oRequest = "<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=\"http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/\" xmlns:com=\"http://com.remp.web.sas.tubeorder.type\">";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<soapenv:Header/>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<soapenv:Body>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<com:beginTransaction>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<Long_1>10</Long_1>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<String_2>BARCODE</String_2>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<String_3>TUBEFIXRACKVAR</String_3>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "</com:beginTransaction>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "</soapenv:Body>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "</soapenv:Envelope>";

        //Builds the connection to the WebService.
        HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080/tubeorder-service/jse?wsdl");
        req.Headers.Add("SOAPAction", "\"http://tempuri.org/Register\"");
        req.ContentType = "text/xml; charset=\"utf-8\"";
        req.Accept = "text/xml";
        req.Method = "POST";


SOAP Mismatch exception



I had an issue with the webservice execution.

Here is my code and am getting an exception SOAP mismatch Exception at ReadProject() method..

wpSvsProject.Project proj= new wpSvsProject.Project();
proj.Url = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["WebServiceURL"].ToString();
proj.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
proj.ProjectDataSet prjDataSet = proj.ReadProject(projGUID, proj.DataStoreEnum.WorkingStore);

My webservice reference url is ....[<add key="WebServiceURL" value="http://server/site/_vti_bin/PSI/Project.asmx?wsdl"/>]

I tried changing the url without '?wsdl' also, but then am getting 401 error (unauthorized error).

Can anyone suggest me on this? Thanks.



Every self-respected programmer should include exception handling techniques. Sometimes your application will generate an error. Regardless of who was responsible for this error, the programmer or the user, it is up to the first to include the necessary exception handling techniques to keep his/her program from crashing. The .Net environment provides useful techniques for avoiding disastrous errors such as try-catch statements and user-defined exceptions.

Global Exception Handling with ASP.NET

After your global exception handler has done its work, you'll want to redirect the users of your website to a friendly page that tells them that something has gone wrong, and then provide them with customer support information as well as a link back to your web application's home page.
