asmx

Hi!

1) why does a web service has a suffix -> asmx.

2) What is asmx ? From where do you find this ?

3) Is it always the case ? If not what other suffix do you also know ?

e.g.

http://www.webservicex.net/SendSMS.asmx

I dont understand the alliance of wsdl file and the web consuming implementation

I guess this the most imporatnt matter

Regards

ertas

    Hi,

    ASMX means 'Active Server Methods' and the Microsoft .NET Webservices Source Files are having this extension.

    WSDL(Web Services Definition Language) is an XML format for describing network services as a set of endpoints operating on messages containing either document-oriented or procedure-oriented information.

    Try the below link for detailed view.

    Hi,

    of so far is everything OK.

    But if ASMX is microsoft technology what is sap using as a similar technology.

    What is the SAP pendant to ASMX ?

    Furthermore I dont undertand the cooperation of wsdl by a cunsuming of a webservice or SOAP.

      with all due respect Ilhan, you should get yourself a book and learn the very basics. Or attend a course or whatever you prefer.

      It is completely irrelevant, what suffix the script name of any service endpoint has. completely.

      Furthermore I dont undertand the cooperation of wsdl by a cunsuming of a webservice or SOAP.

      To me , this sentence makes no sense at all. A WSDL is simply the standardized description of an interface, or a service if you like so. It can be used by any framework to autmate creation of the technical artifacts of a service or a service consumer. but actually when it come to runtime behaviour, the WSDL has nothing to do with the service or service consumption.

      But really, get yourself a good book on webservices, SOA, you name it...
