NuSoap Send a Dataset to VB.Net

P: n/a
I am writing an app in vb .net that will use an XML webservice written in
PHP NuSoap. I want to have the NuSoap server send a dataset to my VB .NET
application i am trying to find any documentation of anyone pullling data
from a database in PHP then using NuSoap to send it to a .NET application
and have the .NET proxy class recognize the return datatype as a dataset so
that i can cache the dataset on the desktop application.

the easiest way is to have a client app create a dataset (using same query
you're going to use in php). save it to file as xml. then open the xml and
see what the structure is...your php script just needs to populate the
column xml tags and values...similar to outputting rows in an html table via
php.

..net will handle the xml appropriately as a dataset.

- then again, i haven't tried it...i build my own xml and stay away from
using built-in web service support in .net...too much overhead and far too
little control over the process of communicating my small-ish amounts of
data.

hth,

Please have a look at the following example file:

You can pass arrays of data back and forward. I have tested this feature for
some of our future efforts.
