  • Hi, 2 and 4 im sure with basicHttpBinding, wich is a standard webservice frontend for the WCF service, also from C++ from any linux for example using gnuSoap, basically basicHttp binding allows calls from any standard soap-web service capable client.

    The other binding configurations are more WCF specific.

    Bye

  • Yes, As for classic ASP, you could use the native MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP component to call WCF service. AS for .NET 2.0 application and Java application, you could use WCF service with basicHttpBinding as a tradition Web service. But as for Windows Mobile 6.0 Application, you can use WCF REST service. As for .NET 3.5 application, you could use 'Add service reference' or svcutil.exe to call it.

  • Hi Peter,

    As you said in the above reply for Windows Mobile 6.0 Application you can use WCF REST Service, Why cannot we use 'Add Service Reference' .

    Is it possible to do by using 'Add Service Reference' or not ?

  • WCF REST service does not based on SOAP message, so you could not use 'Add Service Reference'.

  • Hi Peter,

    Thanks for reply,

    WCF REST service does not based on SOAP message, so you could not use 'Add Service Reference'.

    Then how you can consume (or) call Server Side  WCF Service in Windows Mobile 6.0
