Limitations on C#, SOAP services

Posted on 2007-09-28
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I'm the flash developer, created some applications that connect using the Webservice connector component to connect to a soap service that's been created in C#.
Now the problem is, occasionally, the application hangs. This usually happens when I have concurrent connections. I'm trying to figure out where the problem might be. The thing is, the C# has a select statement that gets data from a MsSQL database. I've noticed if I parse different parameters to it, (i.e. if i run the application 5x concurrently and each one parses a different parameter, i.e credits - it seems to be fine) - however - once all the parameters are the same - it seems to get stuck at a point - could this be a problem with it trying to rerun the same sql select statements over and over? if not - can anyone think of anything else that might be the problem. I've posted a topic on the flash side to see if anyone can come up with issues on the flash side, but I'm thinking it might not be a flash problem.

    I agree that it seems to be a web service/ web service call issue than a flash issue.

    0)But before that are you are sure that the calls gets through to the service and the call doesnt get a response back ???
    1) If this were a query issue, that require looking into the nature of the query, etc
    2) If you had influence over the web service code, you could ask the programmer to add trace information that would log the call and the parameters passed
    3) if it is the same parameters and the simultaneous call caused the issue. why not consider caching if the parameters were same.

    hey sorry phone lines have  been down for over a month.
    the problem was on the server side,
    a) needed to change to win server rather than normal machine
    b) the logs were locking up when too much activity, the programmer sorted that out.
    thanks for your thoughts.
