Need pseudo-code

Hi there,

I am a newb to programming and need some pseudo-code to get me started. I know it doesnt make a diff with pseudo-code but im planning to write this in c#.

Now i am planning to write a application proxy or servlet which will query a web service and return world time zones from this website.

http://worldtimeengine.com/api

Then javascript from my website (do not need pseudo-code for js) will query the results from the application proxy or servelet, so basically it is a seperate app from my website but will sit on the same server.

I have been given this guide from a previous posting but i dont know where to start (ie call the webservice) and which of the examples it implement.

Please ask me any questions on this if i have not explained clearly.

Thanks in advanced.

Dot NET 2.0 is still possible (though it much simpler with .NET 1.0).
About pseudo code, I'm not very sure, because you have to deal with web.config also.
Any way, here is an instruction. It's may not complete as I do not work much on 2.0 now.

First, search for "AJAX Extensions for net 2.0" and you will be able to download ASP.NET AJAX 1.0
Second, add these settings to your web.config:
1.
<configuration xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0">
      <configSections>
            <section name="UploadModuleManagement" type="UploadModule"/>
            <section name="rewriter" type="Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.Configuration.RewriterConfigurationSectionHandler, Intelligencia.UrlRewriter"/>
            <sectionGroup name="system.web.extensions" type="System.Web.Configuration.SystemWebExtensionsSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35">
                  <sectionGroup name="scripting" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35">
                        <section name="scriptResourceHandler" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingScriptResourceHandlerSection, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" requirePermission="false" allowDefinition="MachineToApplication"/>
                        <sectionGroup name="webServices" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingWebServicesSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35">
                              <section name="jsonSerialization" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingJsonSerializationSection, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" requirePermission="false" allowDefinition="Everywhere"/>
                              <section name="profileService" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingProfileServiceSection, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" requirePermission="false" allowDefinition="MachineToApplication"/>
                              <section name="authenticationService" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingAuthenticationServiceSection, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" requirePermission="false" allowDefinition="MachineToApplication"/>
                        </sectionGroup>
                  </sectionGroup>
            </sectionGroup>

2.
<system.web>
            <httpModules>
            <compilation>
                  <assemblies>
                        <add assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
            </compilation>
            <httpHandlers>
                  <remove verb="*" path="*.asmx"/>
                  <add verb="*" path="*.asmx" validate="false" type="System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptHandlerFactory, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>
            </httpHandlers>

Up to that time, your webservice can be invoke via javascript with input and output in form of JSON syntax.

Next, write a web service. Here is an example:

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
using System.Web.Script.Services;
    [ScriptService]
    [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    public class HelloWorld : System.Web.Services.WebService
    {

        public HelloWorld()
        {

            //Uncomment the following line if using designed components
            //InitializeComponent();
        }

        [WebMethod]
        public string TalkToMe(string what)
        {
            return "You ask " + what;
        }

    }
}

And, finally, build the request component:
The easiest way is to use a Javascript framework. I use prototype, you can obtain a copy of prototype at prototypejs.org. Prototypejs provide a class named Ajax.Request to handle ajax request, we will use it for communicate with web services.

After include prototype.js, you can make a web service call:

function requestOK(result){
      alert(result.responseJSON)
}
function invoke: function (){
        var options = {
            method: "post",
            onSuccess: requestOK,
            postBody: {param: "How can this work"},
            contentType: "application/json"
        }
        return new Ajax.Request("HelloWorld.asmx/TalkToMe", options);
    }


As you can see, it will require alot of work. And you must done every thing correctly in order for it to work.
I know you are asking for pseudo code, I cannot give you any, because it about detail.
Now follow the step above, and you should have a wonderful web service.

Which .NET Framework are you working on? If it 3.5, then it's very easy.
Read the article here: http://www.ajaxprojects.com/ajax/tutorialdetails.php?itemid=264

There is a mistake on the javascript code above.
change it:
function invoke: function (){
        var options = {
            method: "post",
            onSuccess: requestOK,
            postBody: "{param: \"How can this work\"}",
            contentType: "application/json"
        }
        return new Ajax.Request("HelloWorld.asmx/TalkToMe", options);
    }
