ASP.net or WCF for a simple web application
Posted on 2011-02-17
I have to build 2 a web application running on IIS 7. The first allows a user to upload a word document and returns to that user a ticket id. The second allows the user to download their file based on the ticket id.
I am an experienced LAMP developer but on this project the only tools available to me are ASP.net, IIS7, .net 3.5 and WCF. After reading about each of those, I wanted to ask people who have used these technologies
Should I make the applications simple forms, that has serverside ASP store the file and generate a ticket id and retrieve the file or does it make sense to write a WCF service application.
Most of my user are automated systems that will POST the information but the users are very familiar with SOAP and are not opposed to a SOAP interface
