System.ComponentModel.DescriptionAttribute not showing up in REST service

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
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

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

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()

Service Applications not showing in services on server on 2nd server

I have installed a new sharepoint farm. I have added to the sharepoint farm a 2nd server. Everything is working fine for browsing sites via the NLB address. I have created some new service applications - including search and managed meta data.  These work fine on the first server.  They do not appear under services on service in central admin for the 2nd server and therefore cannot be started on that server.  I have also notices that the associated web services do not exist under the web services iis website on the 2nd server. Can anyone provide any guidance as to why the service applications and web services are not available upon the 2nd server? Thanks

Can´t set up local system accounts as service accounts in sharepoint 2010

HI I made an inplace upgrade to sharepoint 2010. I want to setup performance point services. but it doesn´t allow me to set a local system account as the application pool account for performance point services application. It doesn´t allow me to register a new account it says The specified user account "domain\username" is a local account. Local accounts should only be used in stand alone mode. The application pool account for the site collection that I upgraded is a local system account so I don´t get it? I tried this http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112 However the upgrade fails after this. Is there any way that I do the inplace upgrade and it would allow me to use local system accounts has service accounts? Without Active directory? Thanks
