JScript .NET, Part VI: Creating IE Web Services

Interacting with IsPrime

Let's scan through the information pertaining to checkIsPrime.asmx. Look at the description of checkIsPrime.asmx, by browsing http://localhost/Webreference/checkIsPrime.asmx. You should see the following Internet Explorer window:

The window lists the Web service's methods. In our case, there is only one method, isPrime. Click the isPrime link to display the Web service test screen. Here is how you input the number to check if prime:

And here is the output window with the Web service's http reply:

Notice we put the number 5 and indeed got the answer in the http reply that the number 5 is a prime number (a response of "1" indicates "true", while a false response, i.e., a non-prime, would generate a response of "0").

You can also ask to see the WSDL description of your Web service. Browse the address http://localhost/Webreference/checkIsPrime.asmx?WSDL to see a structured description of the Web service:

As was the case with our add Web service, a lot of additional information; i.e., the automatically-generated description, test forms, etc. are provided automatically by the .NET Framework.
