Rest Call to c# webservice asmx file

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have  webservice and I am building new mobile client that expects REST API. I am new to REST API. Is there any way to have REST wrapper over existing Webservices?

    Thanks.

  • ASMX web services are a legacy technology that should not be used for new development. The lack of good support for REST is one of many practical reasons not to use it.

    WCF is Web Services. They are not two separate things.
    Use WCF for All New Web Service Development, instead of legacy ASMX or obsolete WSE
    Use File->New Project to create Web Service Projects
