Creating and Accessing XML Web Services

  • Web Services Description Language (Wsdl.exe) is a tool used to generate code for XML Web services and Web service clients from WSDL, XSD schema files, and discovery documents.
  • Use the XML (Extensible Markup Language), SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), XSD (XML Schema Definition), and WSDL (Web Services Description Language) protocols to create a Web service.
  • Use MessageName property to implement two Web methods with the same name and ensure that each of these two Web methods is uniquely identified when it is called separately.

  • Use the CacheDuration property of the WebMethod attribute to specify the number of seconds for which the response should be held in the cache.
  • Use the Namespace property of the WebService attribute to specify the namespace of a proxy generated by Visual Studio .NET 2005.
  • Use the BufferResponse property of the WebMethod attribute to serialize the Web method response into a memory buffer until the response is completely serialized and returned back to the Web service clients over the network.

Installing and Configuring SQL Server 2005

    • In order to change collation settings, reinstall SQL Server 2005 on a server with the same collation settings as on another server.
    • In order to install SQL Server 2005 on a computer on which SQL Server 2000 is already installed, install SQL Server 2005 as a named instance.
    • Members of the db_access role can assign permissions to other users to enable them to access and query the database.
    • RAID-0, also known as disk striping, is made up of a disk set in which data is divided into blocks and spread equally in each disk. It provides best performance because data read and data write operations are not limited to a single disk, but to a set of disks. It does not provide data redundancy. Data once lost cannot be recovered.
    • The Service Broker can be attached to a database by using the FOR ATTACH clause of the CREATE DATABASE statement.

Creating Services

    • The [OperationContract] attribute is applied to a method indicating that the method implements a service operation as part of a service contract. This attribute should be defined before each method specified in a WCF application code.
    • The TransactionTimeout property of the [ServiceBehavior] attribute gets or sets the time in the format “HH:MM:SS” within which a transaction must complete.
    • The [Service Contract] attribute is used to an interface or a class to define a service contract in a WCF application.
    • The TransactionFlowOption enumeration specifies the transaction flow policy for a service operation. It is used with the TransactionFlow attribute that specifies whether a service operation accepts incoming transactions from a client. The OperationBehaviorAttribute.TransactionAutoComplete property gets or sets a value to indicate whether the current transaction scope has been automatically completed if no unhandled exceptions occur.
    • Uploading the XML file in as a stream will work better for uploading large files. Streams can load large amounts of data, or large files that are read into most programs. Therefore, you should create the following operation contract:
      [OperationContract()] void UploadFile(Stream xmlData)
    • In order to handle complex data types, you should use the [KnownType(typeof())] attribute with the data contract. The [KnownType] attribute is specifically meant to be used with structures, classes, interfaces, and other complex data types.
