.NET newbie

Hi,

I am comfortable with the J2EE Web Service Soup but am now trying to install the .NET environment to be able to run some webservice on it.

I installed the .NET Redistribution framework and the .NET SDK. Do I need any other component?

Do I need the IIS Server ? If yes, then it is not supported on my XP home Platform. What do I do?

What is a good starting point to learn writing a service in the Microsoft environment.

TIA

if you want to consume a WSDL and invoke the service and see the request/response soap envelopes all this in .NET then you need to first install .NET framework 1.1/1.2 and install the lightweight WebServiceStudio exe . you dont need any knowledge of c# or some MS specific language to work with web services in .NET. More about WebServiceStudio can be found in axis forums.

Use ASP.NET, its simple and best tool to learn .net webservices.

What are the System Requirements for ASP.NET Web Matrix?

ASP.NET Web Matrix is supported on Windows 2000 (Professional and Server editions) and Windows XP (Home, Professional) operating systems. You must have IE 5.5 or greater and the .NET Framework installed.


Do I need an IIS Web Server to develop web applications using ASP.NET Web Matrix?

No. ASP.NET Web Matrix does not require IIS on a machine for development. ASP.NET Web Matrix includes its own mini-webserver that hosts ASP.NET and can be used for local machine development and testing (note: this web server handles only local machine requests -- it does not allow remote machine connections).

IIS is required for production server deployment of ASP.NET web applications developed using Web Matrix.

Hi S Mithal,

We have a simple policy here that all posters should comply with regarding their name. Would you please take a minute and read the JavaRanch naming policy (which requires you to have a proper display name), and then change your display name to comply with that policy. You can change it by following this link.

Thank you.
Regards

Hi Balaji,

No offense and definitely no point of contention too ... but the policy says "You can even use initials for the first name if you like." Please tell me what part of the policy I do not comply with and I'll gladly change my display name.

And thanks for all your help to the questions I posted above.

Hi Avijit,

I am not proficient at web Services... started learning it just sometime back. Also, I have never worked on Websphere or Rational. Sorry, but I will be unable to help you.
