Experts,

I've got a windows app that allows users to save .pdf files and then upload them to a web service. How can I verify the document successfully uploaded? I've got control over the client and the web service.

Thanks!

The service can return a true or false when it's done with the file saving.  

(pseudo code only)
<webMethod()>
public string SaveFile(byte[] filestream)
try
{
  savefile(filestream);
  return "true";
}
catch (Exception ex)
 {
   return ex.Message;
}  


anything other than "true" would be an error.

If you want double verification, just create a check method:

Client: ValidateFlie(filename);

Server:
public bool ValidateFile(string filename)
{
 string path = "c:\";
 if (System.IO.Exists(path + filename)
  return true;
 
return false;
}
