I have created my first WCF web service. I have installed it as part of the default web site on IIS 7. IIS is not running anything other than this WCF Web Service. The web service has only one Service, SpecSheetService. This service has one Function GetSpecSheet. And that function accepts one Variable, LotNo. The WCF service should returns a string.
You can see from the Publish Image that at this point all the service does is return the string that was sent plus a few other words.
The group trying to access this service has used the URL Http://XXX.XXX.XXX.IPAddress:PortNo/SpecSheetService.svc
. They receive the IIS7 default home page.
In looking into this I find that after Publishing from Visual Basic 2013 that there is not a .SVC file on the Web server, see attached files.
Should there be a .SVC file on the server? If so how do I create one.?
And what string should the testers use to test this service?
