WCF or ASMX web service? RRS feed

  • Question

  • It looks like Microsoft took something simple and made it very complex.  It used to be a fairly trivial process to create a web service and then consume it.  Now there is WCF and WebKit API etc.  

    Where can I find a "Hello World" sample project that will allow me to learn how to use one of these new(er) technologies to duplicate the older asmx web services?  I have created a sample web application with a webkit service in VB.NET , but there doesn't seem to be many clues as to what to do next.

    I would ideally like to be able to host one of these new thingies on IIS, and call it dynamically from a windows app using httpwebrequest.

    TIA, Miles
