Mapping xml messages to c# Functions

Hi All,

I need an approach on calling function that request comes to me with xml message. Ok here is the fully story.

I have an client.aspx in my site and makes xmlhttp calls to serv.aspx. This client.aspx page pass the info about which function it call. Like..

<?xml....?>
<root>
    <msg label="getSubCategories">
         <param lable="categoryId">13</param>
    </msg>
</root>

And I got it in serv aspx and parse it to an object that holds the information of call message.

And now I need a approached that how to invoke requested method.

First thing that comes to my mind is like this.

/*************************************/
switch(msg.label)
{
   case "getSubCategories":
      myapi.getSubCategories(int.parse(msg.parameters[0]))
      break;
   case "getCountries":
      myapi.getCountries()
      break;
   .
   .
   .
}
/*************************************/

This maybe very easy to implement but the list may be to long and every change to api needs change of the inner part of the switch

So I ask what can be done for the issue. Is the above is suitable, or regular web xml service use a best way. Or what can be else?

thanks as now.

note: I use my own api for xml calls and easily made change on message body, and use c# (asp.net 2.0 on w2003 IIS 6.0), by the way I do not want to implement standard soap message rules and set web service project that comes with .net it sells. You can be ask why beacause the job I decide t&#305;o to is more like an remote call system, because I want it to specially to my system..:)

You can use Reflection for this I suppose. I think the following CodeProject article can be helpful to you: http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/runtime_method_invoke.asp
