System.Guid

P: n/a
I have a simple .NET 2.0 web service created with VS.NET 2005 with a single
web method with the following signature:

[WebMethod]
void HelloWorld(Guid parameter1);

When calling this method I receive the following error:
System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.
at System.Web.Services.Protocols.HttpServerType..ctor (Type type)
at System.Web.Services.Protocols.HttpServerProtocol.I nitialize()
at System.Web.Services.Protocols.ServerProtocol.SetCo ntext(Type type,
HttpContext context, HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response)
at System.Web.Services.Protocols.ServerProtocolFactor y.Create(Type type,
HttpContext context, HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response, Boolean&
abortProcessing)If I change the type of parameter1 to a simple type such as
string or int then the method works as expected. My operating system is
Windows 2003 Server R2 (Enterprise Edition) with all the latest patches.

I see several other people have run into this error. Does anyone have an
idea how to correct this?

Thanks,
Michael

First of all, I'd suggest that System.Guid is a platform-specific type, so
why do you want to use it in a Web Service? Perhaps you should make your
parameter be of type string, and then parse out the Guid from the string.

Hi John,

I do understand the Guid parameter is a platform-specific type. That said,
the generated WSDL defines the type as a string but with format constraints
(a regular expression in the form
"[0-9a-fA-F]{8}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{12}".
I have both JAVA and PHP consumers calling several services with Guid
parameters without issue; again, from their perspective it's a string with
format contraints.

However, this does not explain the below exception. Any help specific as to
why the exception occurs is appreciated.

Kindest regards,
Michael

You could define GUID as a schema type and use that versus System.Guid and
relying on how the platform will translate it:

The following was snipped off the web:

<xsd:simpleType name="GUID">

<xsd:annotation>

<xsd:documentation xml:lang="en">

The representation of a GUID, generally the id of an element.

</xsd:documentation>

</xsd:annotation>

<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">

<xsd:pattern

value="\{[a-fA-F0-9]{8}-[a-fA-F0-9]{4}-[a-fA-F0-9]{4}-[a-fA-F0-9]{4}-[a-fA-F0-9]{12}\}"/>

</xsd:restriction>

</xsd:simpleType>

I believe I've seen that same type definition for one of Microsoft's
products, SharePoint or something maybe.

Hi Ron,

I appreciate your time. As indicated in my previous post that is precisely
what I do. The issue is that I receive the following error when doing so:

[WebMethod]
void HelloWorld(Guid parameter1);

System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.

Sorry about that, didn't realize System.Guid was serializable.

I can't reproduce the error here. Just a simple web service with the same
signature as what you've posted, and a console client calling the service
and passing a Guid.NewGuid() to it. Tried Guid.Empty as well.

Is it safe to say that since you aren't getting a SoapException, that the
exception is occuring on the client side? I know you mention changing the
signature from Guid to String and everything works, but I think there's an
issue serializing the value of what's supposed to be a guid on the client.

How about if you change the signature to string, have the service log the
value it receives and see if that value is a valid Guid format?
