Create an .asmx file.  The file should look something like this:

Imports System.Web.Services
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols
Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Web.Script.Serialization
Imports System.Web.Script.Services

' To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line.
<System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService()> _
<System.Web.Services.WebService(Namespace:="http://tempuri.org/")> _
<System.Web.Services.WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo:=WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)> _
<ToolboxItem(False)> _
Public Class MyWebService
    Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService
    
     'this is the database context for my project (I am using Linq to SQL in this example)
     Dim db As New EnvironmentWebModelDataContext()
    <WebMethod()> _
    <ScriptMethod(ResponseFormat:=ResponseFormat.Json)> _
    Public Function DoSomething() As String
        'I use Entity framework or Linq to SQL here to talk to my DB and get a
        'generic list of something
        dim result = From p as Person in db.People where p.LastName = "Jones"

        Return New JavaScriptSerializer().Serialize(result)
    End Function
End Class

Open in new window



You can then access this information in a jquery ajax call like this:

    $.ajax({
        type: "POST",
        contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
        url: "url to your .asmx file",
        data: JSON.stringify(<any data you have for parameters of the service>),
        dataType: "json",
        success: function (data, textResponse) {
            result = $.parseJSON(data.d);
        }
    });

Open in new window



That's pretty much it.  Very simple.  Here are the keys:

1. Use asp.net's Imports System.Web.Script.Serialization to serialize your generic objects.  Except for dates, it does a great job.
2.  Make sure to have this in your web.config:
<system.web>
    <webServices>
      <protocols>
        <add name="HttpGet" />
        <add name="HttpPost" />
      </protocols>
    </webServices>
</system.web>

Open in new window

3.  Finally, a watchout-out.  I have found expanding the size of request that is permitted has fixed some issues with queries that result in a lot of data.
  <system.web.extensions>
    <scripting>
      <webServices>
        <jsonSerialization maxJsonLength="5000000" />
      </webServices>
    </scripting>
  </system.web.extensions>

Open in new window

This is a decent example:  http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/332406/Client-side-Model-binding-with-ASP-NET-MVC-3-and-K

Look at the code tab itself and look MarketWatchController and MarketWatchPriceUI.

Hope this helps!
