Access to a MSRS DSS service state from a ASP.net Web service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I want to acces to the state of my MSRS DSS service from a web service.
    The web service is on the same machine as the DSS service.

    I want a web method which make a call on my DSS service:
     public int GetDSSServiceState{

    Is http request the only way to do this?

    thank for reply.

  • You can have a single EXE that uses DssEnvironment to start the DSS host that runs the robot services, and ofcourse it gives APIs to access it from any non dss code. That exe can also host your web service.


    If your webservice is already hosted in some dll, that is ok too, start DssEnvironment within your WebRequests code, that will work too

    Please review our hosting tutorials 1 -> 4, since they show exactly how you can start DSS in an EXE or DLL of your choice, then issue DSS requests from your non-dss code.
