Book: .NET Web Services Solutions
.NET Web Services Solutions offers just what its title states: practical solutions to the real challenges you face as you use .NET to create applications that communicate with web services and—more to the point—to build and deploy web services of your own. By the time you’re done, you’ll understand how the web services platform works, because chapter by chapter you get the hands-on instruction, detailed examples, and inside advice you need to make your project succeed.
For example, you’ll learn to connect to a database using ADO.NET operations, carry out the exchange of binary files, and extend the reach of your web service so that it touches e-mail, fax machines, mobile devices, and remote PCs. You’ll master techniques for making your web service available to other programs—but you’ll also discover ways to control its availability through authentication and encryption.
