accessing/using web service from C++ windows application

Hi Experts,

How can I access web services on the web using MFC/C++ windows application?

Can u teach me the step by step process how to communicate with the web service? I tried from the internet but I could not make it work. I create a web service from C# and compiled and run it. but I could not access it in my mfc windows application. the example I get only have .asmx file not .wsdl file. how can I make a .wsdl file from c#? I hope you can help me on this. I've been googling the whole day but I could not make it work.

From menu Project select "Add web reference" and let the wizard create a service wrapper for you.

Thanks for your replies.

I already made the .asmx file but I cannot access it with my windows application using soap client. The example I have is locating the .wsdl file(http://www.myserver.com/SoapSamples/MyObj.wsdl) not the .asmx file.

the snippet below shows that the defined SRVC refers to a .wsdl file. I tried changing the SRVC to .asmx but it doesn't work. error occurs when line "m_pClient->mssoapinit(SRVC, "", "", "");" is execute.

Maybe if you guys have a better sample code in order for me to access the asmx file would get the points. or make a web service with the extension of .wsdl using c# or C++.

Thanks guys.

//TODO change to your web server location
#define SRVC "http://www.myserver.com/SoapSamples/MyObj.wsdl"
BOOL CDemo2Dlg::Connect()
		m_pClient = new ISOAPClient;
			m_pClient->mssoapinit(SRVC, "", "", "");
			m_bConnected = TRUE;
			return FALSE;
	return TRUE;

Open in new window


>>error occurs when line "m_pClient->mssoapinit(SRVC, "", "", "");" is execute.

Trace HRESULT value for above statement....look if you are getting some error (e.g. -2147024809) which stands for 'The parameter is incorrect.'


hr = m_pClient->mssoapinit(SRVC, "", "", "");
