Web service host

P: n/a
I have an application that includes a web service. The web service was
developed in VS 2003, but has since been ported to VS 2005.

Today, when I deploy the application, I need to make sure that IIS is
installed and configured correctly to host the web service. I'd like to get
rid of IIS and host the web service directly in my application.

Is it easy to host a web service in a VB.Net app? Where can I look to get a
quick start on doing this sort of thing?

TIA - Bob

Hmmm... I hadn't considered going to .Net 3.0. I'm still using the 2.0
stuff that ships with VS 2005.

I guess the downside to going to .Net 3.0 is that I need to make sure that
..Net 3.0 (or is it 3.5 now?) is installed both on the computers that will
run my app and on the computers used by my fellow application developers.

Is there a way to do this in .Net 2.0?

TIA - Bob

<ctrl><alt><delreset... I realized that I'm probably not asking the right
question. I posted a new top-level message on this ng. Please disregard
this thread. Thanks!

You could use Cassini Web Service from Microsoft's Starter Pack.

www.asp.net/downloads/archived/cassini/

There's an enhanced closed source version:

However this is a 3rd party solution - not really recommended for public
facing web applications.

As for 3.0, you'll only need it loaded on the developer and server machine,
not the end user's machine (since you're building a web service).
