Is it possible to have an asp.net webservice respond to the caller with an actual document?
I need the webservice to take in some parameters and based on the webservice parameters respond with a document... the document will be a pdf file.. could be exe file.. could be any valid filetype.

Thank you

I don't think so.  At least not directly.  Webservices normally comminucate using SOAP - so you could wrapt the file in the SOAP response, but I don't think the file can be the response itself.
