Hi everyone, I have been tasked with creating a web service(usingVS2010) to query TFS (2010) by the workitem number. The user would access the web service, then type in the workitem number and hit a go button. This would call the web service, retrieve the title, and description and display it for the user on a seperate application. So starting this process I thought I would create a simple console application that does the same thing. I was able to connect to the server and I am able to see the collection of projects that exists (which is 4 projects). What I am looking for is some help in querying the Server so that I can type in workItem number and get a response in my console. Does anyone have any examples, or direction or websites? While I wait for an answer I will be searching the web. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your post.
Seems you want wirte a web service to connect TFS and query work item. If I have misunderstood anything, please free feel to let me know.
Actually, TFS has Team Web Access, which is a Web interface that you can use to connect to Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and collaborate and coordinate your efforts with other team members to develop a project. You can use Team Web Access to manage work that is assigned to you and your team projects. For detail information, you can refer to Managing Work Using Team Web Access and Manage Work Items in Work Item Only View (Team Web Access)
About connect to TFS programmatically, you can refer to http://geekswithblogs.net/TarunArora/archive/2011/06/18/tfs-2010-sdk-connecting-to-tfs-2010-programmaticallyndashpart-1.aspx.
