I found a nice article here. The problem is no explanation for 'Calling' the service from a client.

It's WEB API, which is styled similar (built upon?) the MVC Framework that Microsoft developed. You would use standard HTTP "conversations" to interact with the service. If you look at the comments in some of the controller snippets, you will see that some of the use a GET verb, and the corresponding URI is shown as well. For the snippet I linked, you could do something like this in the browser address bar:


...since a browser will send a GET by default. You could also use Fiddler to get a bit fancier with POSTs and PUTs, if the tutorial demonstrates those (I haven't checked).

I suppose using WebClient or HttpWebResponse like the following code snippet would be the correct consuming methodology?


using System.Net;

string url = String.Format("http://localhost/task);

WebClient serviceRequest = new WebClient();

string response = serviceRequest.DownloadString(new Uri(url));

In code, yes you could use either of those. There is also HttpClient available, with which you can do asynchronous processing.
