    The link doesn't work for me. I just get an 'unknown server' message. Web Services are easy. Is this more than the normal tutorials show ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    The link is working again, sorry about that. Also, it's not much. It was my first try at Web Services. I am just shocked at how easy it is to do.

    I got them from my book (Programming C#: 2nd Edition from O'Reilly). It's really quite simple to setup. Just install IIS on your box. Then in VS.NET create an empty web service (project). It will generate the code needed to run the application as a web service. Here is the important part, which any method you want to be seen over the web service add [ WebMethod ] over it, example...

    Code:
    [WebMethod]
    public double Add(double x, double y) {
    	return x + y;
    }
    Then go to the URL you provided when you started the web project (something like http://localhost/projectname) and you will be able to use your methods. Simple huh?

    I feel so confortable with C#, it's so much like Java is alot of places it was easy to pick up.

    You actually shelled out the bucks for VS.NET? Or you still using Beta2?

    Alright, I'm gonna try that out on my Beta2 system, and maybe my C# book has WebService examples. Thanks.

    Yeah, I'm using the full version of VS.NET. Working in IT has its advantages.

    Good luck with this stuff, I'm sure you'll have no problems. It's very simple.
