What do you want to call asynchronously from your web service ? (or do you
meant you want to call your webservice asynchronously).

hi ,
what i want to do is :

1. My client calls my asmx webservice --here i need to send a message back
saying "i have started your request".This is the first return
2. secondly i need to complete the job what my asmx is intended to so and
send the status of the job back to my client.

Thanks

I'm still not sure to fully understand what you expect from this scheme.
Keep in mind that under normal circumstances a web service is based on a
request/response pair i.e. each response should be issued in response to a
client request.

Also I'm not sure to understand what benefit you expect from your first
call...

So basically it would give us :

1) you could just display client side that processing has started and then
call the web service once.

2) a variation would be to use an asynchronous call to your service (I
believe Begin<Method> would fail in case if this is what you are after) and
you could additionaly perform client side some other things while the
service is running.

I would choose one of those two schemes.

Extreme solutions would be :

3) to have a pair of calls one submitting a job (possibly returning a job
id) and the other triggering the actual execution.

4) you could even have a client side service that the web service could call
once done.

But I would really double check the reason for this first call before trying
to do so...

the client need to poll for the request to be completed, the server can not
send to the client. so on the first request, you start a thread to process
the request. then the client on a timer, calls to see if its done.

some issues to address

1) how to identity the work in process - use some sort of ticket token
2) how to store the resuslt of the processing
3) what if the client never calls back to check results
4) controlling how many requestes can be processed at the same time.
5) error handling of the background threads.

I definetly recommend using an async call. This is a pretty good
example.
