Default A good book on Web Services ?

Hello,

I am looking for a good book on programming with Web Services using C# and ASP.net. All the books I've looked at on Amazon were written many years ago-- 2001, 2006. I believe Web Services was replaced by WCF--- is that why there is no newer books on web services ?

I need a book on web services...would buying one of these older book give me everything I need-- or are there newer books out there ? I couldn't find any on amazon.

Thank you,,

Which web services are you talking about? The .asmx web service part of .NET? If so, I doubt there'll be more recent books as the technology hasn't changes.

You'll like find more recent books on WCF which more or less replaced the asmx services. And in recent years, Microsoft released ASP.NET Web API which is the new way to do rest-based (web) services.

Cheers,

Imar

I am only consuming the web services, meaning that I will be getting data from my customer who published it using web services. To answer the question "Do I implement .ASMX or WCF on my consumer side ?" does it matter how the customer implemented the web service ? In my beginner understanding, the client code for .ASMX web services seems different than WCF. Do I have to ask the customer how they coded the web service ? For WCF, I am familiar with ABC (Address, Binding, Contract).

thx.

You don't implement either on the consuming side, although your implementation might differ depending on what they offer. Knowing what they offer comes in handy as you need to choose between WCF and older technologies when adding the service reference through the Add | Service Reference dialog in Visual Studio.

Cheers,

Imar
