Deploying .Net Web Service

P: n/a
I fairly have my Web Service working the way that I want, so my next step
will be to deploy it on a server. Do I just add a deployment/install
project, build it and install it on the server?

TIA!

I'm using VS 2003. Does/Should the "Click-Once" thing work for me or is
that only in 2005?

Well with VS 2003 we just build the project in release mode and copy it to
the webserver , with VS.Net 2005 you have some more options ( precompile or
not )

click once is ment for deploying your apps to end users afaik

deploying a web project is verry easy as it is all XCOPY ware ( drag and
drop in a virtual directory and it should work, you may also use the copy
option in your project IDE to deploy the app )

Thanks for your response, but I'm not quite clear on what to drag and where
to drop it. And where is this copy option in the IDE?

Thanks for your help and responses. I now have a barrage of questions:
The main idea is that my WebService modules are in
"c:\inetpub\wwwroot\WSMyService", so I will need to copy that directory and
everything underneath to the equivalent IIS wwwroot directory on the server
and it should 'magically' work, right?
I guess I should also make sure the proper version of the .Net Framework is
loaded on the server, right? I'm using VS 2003, so I guess I'm using Fx
1.1; how would I verify that?
Are there any IIS things that need to be done on the server box? (This is a
private web service)
Also is there a way, without the benefit of having VS 2003 loaded on the
server, to test the web service? Copy a build of my test program and the
test input files and run them?

sorry for the late reaction ... ( missed this thread in my group reader )

"c:\inetpub\wwwroot\WSMyService", so I will need to copy that directory and
everything underneath to the equivalent IIS wwwroot directory on the
server and it should 'magically' work, right?
this is a definite Yes ....( it should work like that )

is loaded on the server, right? I'm using VS 2003, so I guess I'm using
Fx 1.1; how would I verify that?

1.1 or newer installed

Also is there a way, without the benefit of having VS 2003 loaded on the
server, to test the web service? Copy a build of my test program and the
test input files and run them?
Yes this is possible with this tag in your webconfig file
<add name="Documentation"/>

see one of my services http://online.autotools.nl/ATWebService/Service.asmx

and try the fblnCarHasAutotools method ( VAG , 224 for instance )

and you will see the typical response of this service only test services
lime this that use simple datatypes and return simple datatypes ( see the 2
other methods . they do not show the form interface as they expect
datasets )

so it looks like this
<webServices>

<protocols>

<add name="HttpSoap"/>

<add name="HttpPost"/>

<add name="HttpGet"/>

<add name="HttpPostLocalhost"/>

<!-- Documentation enables the documentation/test pages -->

<add name="Documentation"/>

</protocols>

</webServices>
