Deploy custom webservice to web application

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


I'm writing custom webservices for SharePoint 2010. Now generally it involves deploying .svc files to the ISAPI directory, which makes them available in http://server/_layouts/_vti_bin.

Works great, but this deploys the webservice to all web applications at once. In a shared environment this isn't preferable. So how can I deploy the webservice to a single webapp? I guess that means the .svc should be somewhere in the database instead of the filesystem. Is this doable and a good solution? Or are there other ways to acheive the same.

I'd like to have a solution which deploys to the web application scope. Updon deployment, I can select the web application(s) to deploy it to which makes the webservice avaiable in those and only those web apps.

.NET Internals: Tailor Your Application by Building a Custom Forms Designer with .NET


The design-time architecture of Windows Forms in the .NET Framework has made development much more flexible than it had been with MFC. With Windows Forms, you can drag one of your custom controls from the toolbox and drop it onto the Visual Studio design surface and even though Windows Forms knows nothing about the control, it's able to host it and let you manipulate its properties-not possible in MFC. In this article, the author discusses what's going on under the covers as you design your forms and then walks through the creation of a bare-bones forms designer.

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.

Problem passing custom object returned by the same webservice among two separate projects

I am running into casting issue with this scenario: 1. I made a custom object lets call it EmployeeObject.  2. The Employee object is wrapped in the EmployeeWebservice.  3. I have a client application project lets call it EmployeeClientApplication and a class library called DoSomeWorkClassLibrary.  Both EmployeeClientApplication and DoSomeWorkClassLibrary reference the EmployeeWebService and need to be able to pass the EmployeeObject back and forth.  4. The EmployeeClientApplication also references the DoSomeWorkClassLibrary. 5. The employeeObject in the EmployeeClientApplication becomes EmployeeClientApplication.EmployeeWebService.EmployeeObject. 6. The employeeObject in the DoSomeWorkClassLibrary becomes DoSomeWorkClassLibrary.EmployeeWebService.EmployeeObject. 7. The DoSomeWorkClassLibrary has a method called DoSomeWork that takes an EmployeeObject. When I try to pass employeeObject from EmployeeClientApplication to DoSomeWorkClassLibrary by doing something like this: DoSomeWorkClassLibrary.DoSomeWork(EmployeeClientApplication.EmployeeWebService.EmployeeObject), I am getting Unable to convert EmployeeClientApplication.EmployeeWebService.EmployeeObject to DoSomeWorkClassLibrary.EmployeeWebService.EmployeeObject.  I have searched high and low to fix this issue, I have tried changing the namespace of the reference.cs file of the webservice in

Can I deploy a custom site page from the VS2010 SharePoint project?

Hi We're setting up some demos of our sharepoint plugins and want to easily deploy these into sharepoint so that all members of the company can easily get the demos running on their own machines. This is fine for layouts, web parts and so on - but the demo also has a customised sharepoint home page (which I edited in SP Designer) - how do I make this edited home page part of the VS2010 project so that it can be deployed easily to any site collection?   Thanks

Secure Service Store and custom web application.

 Hello All,  I have a problem for which I would like to use the Secure Service Store.  I've searched for similar solutions involving the SSS but I've not had any success yet.  Maybe I'm missing something obvious or going about it the wrong way.   We have an external application (actually, a number of external applications) we'd like to embed in our SharePoint site using an iframe or the Page Viewer web part.  The embedded application uses a custom forms based authentication scheme and I want to prevent the situation where a user has to log into our application then log into the embedded application.  Is there anything available the help post the credentials from SSS to the custom application?  The only think I can think to do is write some code that mimics a post to the login page of the embedded app and, if needed, write a stripped down or simpler login page for the embedded app to make that easier.  For my immediate task I have quite a bit of control over the source of both application and could write custom code on both sides if I had to, but I'd rather have a solution that only involve configuration or, at most, custom code on the SharePoint side.  Thanks,  Brandon 

Trying to build a custom application to crawl SharePoint Search

Hello,      I have been tasked with building a custom application to develop a report dynamically based upon a search ran in a SharePoint site using user-defined keywords. What I need the application to do is this: 1.) Access the results of a search, and do a full fidelity save of each item. 2.)  If the item returned is a document in a library and it has other versions associated with it, access the meta-data of those other versions and group those results with the item found in the search. 3.) Store the results in XML (probably the easiest), and build a custom display for reporting purposes. If anyone has any advice on how I can accomplish this, I would be very grateful, Thanks!

Custom UsernamePasswordValidator causes IIS Application Pool to hang.

I have a WCF service hosted in IIS (IIS 7 with .NET 3.5 SP1) that uses a custom UsernamePasswordValidator to validate message credentials against a database. The problem is that it works for a while, but over a period of time IIS stops responding to all client requests until the application pool is recycled. The IIS worker process has some requests that get stuck in the "AuthenticateRequest" pipeline state of the "ServiceModel" module. In my testing, I can consistantly reproduce the problem by forcing a client to create a new service proxy with a different username and password and calling the WCF service every few seconds. To troubleshoot I created a new project and removed all of the authentication code in the Validate function so that the UsernamePasswordValidator will accept any username and password combination without throwing an exception, but IIS still hangs: namespace WcfTestService { public class CustomValidator : UserNamePasswordValidator { public override void Validate(string userName, string password){//code removed for testing} } } If I remove the ServiceCredentials node from the Service Behavior, IIS doesn't hang anymore, but there is no user validation that takes place either, which is a problem. Here is the service binding configuration: <services> <service name=&

Deploy XBAP application with WCF Service Reference into multiple environments

Hi, we have a multiple environment setup (local, Development servers, QA servers, prod servers, etc.) and we are building an XBAP application that uses WCF Services to connect to databases.  We code and unit test everything locally and then deploy to our Development servers for more thorough unit testing.  The issue that we are having is that we don't see how to update the deployed XBAP application to use the Development server deployed WCF Service.  The only way we've been able to do this is by having to change the reference on my local machine, complie, and redeploy the XBAP.Question:  How do we configure a deployed XBAP's Service Reference to point to the same service on a different server than what it was originally compiled/deployed with?  (Like in some configuration file...NOTE: but we also don't see a config file after deploying the XBAP.)  We don't want to have to update the Service Reference for QA, Prod, Training, Stage, etc. on our local machines, compile and redeploy every time we need to migrate the application to a new environment.Thanks!
