Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Calling the service from a Windows desktop client, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Services.
In the previous movie, I described how to…create a simple web service with asp.net, and I…showed that you can get to the service's documentation,…by simply starting the service from within Visual Studio.…And from there, you can get to the service description, the…WSDL document that a soap client needs to call the service.…Now, I'll show how to use the service…from a Windows desktop application built with Windows Presentation…Foundation, or WPF.…To call the service, the client application needs the…WSDL address, so I'll copy that to the clipboard.…
And then I'll switch over to another version of Visual Studio Express.…This is Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop, another free version of…Visual Studio that's designed to build…desktop applications with WPF or Windows forms.…I've already…built a simple client application.…You can find this beginning application and…the solution version in the course exercise files.…The application has two text input boxes, that I'll add numbers…to and a Calculate button which will call the web service operation.…
