WCF REST webservice authentication error when hosted with godaddy

Hi guys, I'm currently hosting my site on a shared windows hosting box with Godaddy. I have upgraded my hosting account to .NET 3.5 and having IIS7 as well which is in integrated pipeline mode. I recently build a simple WCF web service using the REST started kit preview 2. Once i uploaded it to the server, I am getting this error"IIS specified authentication schemes 'Basic, Anonymous', but the binding only supports specification of exactly one authentication scheme. Valid authentication schemes are Digest, Negotiate, NTLM, Basic, or Anonymous. Change the IIS settings so that only a single authentication scheme is used." You can see it here:http://sawasdeethaiart.com/service.svcThe obvious fix for as i have read from various websites, is to make sure I configure my IIS to have either Basic or Anonymous specification enabled. But as i am on a shared hosting account, i dont have any access to do this. (I have checked all my options in the IIS hosting panel, but there is no option). I am also done this in my web.config<authentication mode="None"></authentication> Is there any other option I can add  to my web.config to overcome this? or is there any other fix for this? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Mark  

REST Webservice with Visual Studio 2005

Hello I'm trying to write a REST Webservice with VS2005 and .NET 2.0  in C#. I was happy to find an example on http://www.codeproject.com/KB/architecture/RESTWebServicesPart2.aspx, because I'm not experienced in ASP.NET, but this example was developed with VS2008. I tried to import the project to VS2005, but it did not work. I started a new project in VS2005 New>>Website>>ASP.NET Web Site It created a folder  App_Data, a file Default.aspx and another file called Default.aspx.cs, which i deleted and then replaced with the folders RESTHandlers and RESTService and the file Web.config.   The Web.config file looks like this: <?xml version="1.0"?> <configuration> <system.web> <compilation debug="true"> </compilation> <httpHandlers> <clear/> <add verb="PUT" path="*" validate="false" type="RESTHandlers.PutHandler, RESTHandlers"/> <add verb="POST" path="*" validate="false" type="RESTHandlers.PostHandler, RESTHandlers"/> <add verb="GET" path="*" validate="false" type="RESTHandlers.GetHandler, RESTHandlers"/> <add verb="DELETE" path="*" validate="false" type="RESTHandlers.DeleteHandler, RESTHandlers"/>

WCF REST webservice hosted in a windows service


Hi, I created a WCF REST service which had a method "Result":



public interface IService


   [OperationContract(Name =  "Result")]

   [WebGet(UriTemplate = "/")]

   string Result();


When I went to the default page http://localhost:portnumber/Service.svc it would display the string returned by Result().


I then wanted to host the WCF service in a Windows Service. The service is running fine and I can browse to the baseAddress. However in this setup it displays the default "You have created a service" page and doesn't execute the method returning the string.


I'm not even sure if this is possible. In summary is it possible to how a WCF REST service in a Windows Service and get it to respond to HTTP GET requests?


Can anybody suggest a solution?





Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

saving XML output from webservice


 I created a webservice that takes casenum as input and gives results as a dataset in an XML.

I could make a web client to display the resulting dataset in a grid view. Pls see my code copied below.

Now I want to create a console client that takes the casenum as input, to call the webservice and saves the resulting xml for further processing, but can't figure out how to just capture the xml to save. Here's the code for my web client. I would appreciate if you could help modify this tocapture the resulting xml to save file locally.

Thank You.

namespace ResultsWebServicesClient
    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private void BindDataToGrid(string CaseNum)
            FG_Results results = new FG_Results();
            DataSet ds1 = new DataSet();
            ds1 = results.Get_FG_Results(CaseNum);
            GridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
            GridView1.DataSource = ds1.Tables[0];

        protected void GetResults(object sender, EventArgs e)


HTTP Post and WebService


I am working on a application which will accept the data in the post request. My application also wants to expose a web service and want to call another web service. Considering all these 3 action that I want to do, can I create a single application which will have a web form which will accept the POST request and expose a web service at the same time.

Although it may be possible to achieve this, Is this a correct way of doing it?

Calling webservice from the server


I have a sample web service and aspx file. I deployed them to an existing website that contains classic asp files.

web-service: --- using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Web; using System.Web.Services; [WebService(Namespace = "http://localhost/MyWebServices/")] public class MembershipRegisWebService : System.Web.Services.WebService { public MembershipRegisWebService () { //Uncomment the following line if using designed components //InitializeComponent(); } [WebMethod] public string HelloWorld() { return "Hello World."; } }

aspx.cs file: --- using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Web; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; using System.Web.Services; public partial class CallWebService : System.Web.UI.Page { protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { MembershipRegisWebService mrWs = new MembershipRegisWebService(); Response.Write("Calling web service:" + mrWs.HelloWorld()); } }

It runs locally, but it shows an error when running it from the server:

Server Error in '/' Application. Compilation Error Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the follow

C# / Java webservice


I am writting a client applicatin that acesses a webservice written by another company.  I need to test against this webservice but since it is live I need another place to test with.  I don't have access to the code from the webservice but have added a reference to my project.  I would like to create a test platform using C# which will run on IIS and not Java.

I have created a basic webserive using both the NetBeans platform and the VS/C# platform.  The problem I am having is if I dynamically change the web address from one to the other my client application complains that the webservice is invalid.  I have verified all the calls are the same.

Are there any setting with VS/C# that allow me to configure it to behave more like the Java webservice?  I don't have the server support to host the Java application for full testing along with other problems using the Java version.

I have run both services in the "WCF Test Client" and can see where the WCF service uses the varibles for request and the Java uses body/request but can't get the WCF to follow that format.  I read somewhere about changing the OperationContract with SoapRpcMethod but then the mentod is not longer exposed. I also tried a Web Service in .NET 3.5 instead of a WCF server but that seems to be more trouble and does not

Printing crystal report from webservice



I am trying to print crystal repot directly from a C# application, which is calling webservice. I am able to display report in crystalreportviewer by passing the webservice call to datasource. However, is there anyway, I can print directly without showing the report?

Alternatively, I was trying return ReportDocument object from webservice, which would solve my problem, but I was unable to return the ReportDocument because of serialization issue. Is it even possible? Thank you

Cutting Edge: Context-Sensitive PictureBox Controls


Great ideas are timeless. A long time ago in Microsoft Systems Journal Paul DiLascia demonstrated a neat trick to display context-sensitive tooltips floating over pictures. As the user moved the mouse over the picture, the tooltip control updated its text to reflect the name of the pointed figure.

Cutting Edge: Adding a Context Menu to ASP.NET Controls


Although the context menu is a common element of most desktop applications, it is still fairly uncommon in Web application names because it doesn't map well to a server-based technology like ASP. NET.
