Web Service receives lots of types of requests

I am going to be writing a web service in Visual Basic .NET internally for
my company. This web service is going to be setup to send various kinds of
messages to the internet since the main production servers currently reside
in the DMZ. The main production servers are in the DMZ and are behind a
firewall so they are not able to send messages externally to the internet.
This internal Visual Basic.NET web service will be calling various types
of other external web services so that the information can be consumed. For
example one call will be setup to obtain financial information, another web
service would be to obtain weather data, other web service would be to obtain
travel information.
Thus each type of call to an external web service will be different.
How would you setup this internal web service to be able to process the
different types of web service calls that it needs to be made in Visual
Basic.NET?

Just create per usual. In this internal web service, right click on Web
References, and add references to the external services.

Obviously get the internal web service working first, without any external
references

We have a .NET 1.1 client which is sending a gzipped soap request using HttpWebRequest to an Apache server. The Apache server is using a the 'mod_deflate' server to decompress the incoming message, and to also compress the response (GZIP). The mod_deflate filter requires the 'Content-Length' header contained within the incoming request to specify the number of UNCOMPRESSED bytes being sent and not the actual bytes of the body of the...

I have to interface to a third-party application that receives HTTP POSTs with XML content to a certain port on the server. The server is *not* a web server, rather some custom server app written by the third-party, so it's behavior is not predictable or necessarily HTTP compliant. Therefore, I can't use the much simpler HttpWebRequest. Also, if I repeatedly open new connections to it, the server gets bogged down with authentication and...

I have two versions of the same program that send requests to a Web service. One version is a Windows application written in C#, and it properly handles a cookie created by the Web service.

The second version is an ASP.NET Web application, and it never receives the expected cookie from the Web service. I can tell because a breakpoint...

Hi, I've been trying like a madman to make my WSDL work with .net, but it seems I am out of luck. Whenever I add a service reference to Visual C#, the code gets generated fine, however all operations miss their parameters, which is very weird. I have stripped down the WSDL to an example of a singe simple function. Before I post all the WSDL, here is what I tried. I loaded the WSDL using the "add service reference" function. I got code...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
