Need Direction with Using Web Services (Creating ASMX files using VB.net ) RRS feed

  • AIM: 

    To get a desktop client server application to talk to a web based application using web services


    There is desktop client server based application which provides web services portlets.

    There is another web based application that needs to interact with this application.

    The desktop client server application is VB.net based with MSSQL Database.

    The web based application has been developed using php/mysql.

    The desktop and the web applications need to talk to each other.

    The web application is expected to transact data with the desktop application.

    I believe a web services based code needs to be hosted on a server that opens up a portlet for the web calls.

    The web application then can send and receive data using the web service calls available with the client server application.

    Can anyone direct me to the right material?

    I am new to this but keen to understand 

    Starting from getting a clear understanding of the concept, I wish to know

    1 how do I get my concepts cleared.

    2 what products are required,

    3, is there some ready made sample code I can use

    4. what material should I go through,

  • Hello,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    I am afraid that the issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses the usage of Visual Studio IDE such as WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    Because this issue involves ASP.NET Web Application, I suggest that you can consult your issue on ASP.NET forum: http://forums.asp.net/  for better solution and support.

    Best regards,
