I needed to create a web service that had several optional parameters and resolved to implement this by accepting an xmldocument or nodelist as the input parameter. The problem is that I am not sure how to create a document in the consuming VB.Net client.
The client needs to pass
parameter 1: Unquie Id of item
parameter 2: Image file as byte array
parameter 3: next process stage id
parameter 4: urgency id
parameter 5: user id
parameter 6: station id
parameter 7-X: categories associated with the item including related information associated with the category: reviewed id, reviewed date time, reviewed bit, verified id, verified date time, verified bit.
here is a sample
The question is how would I create such a document, the only condition is that I do not want to load any xmldocument as a base, I only want to create it in memory on the client and pass it to the web service.
