Web Service or Web API Tutorial Using VB.NET


I found various tutorials on how to create a web server/web API (I think these are one in the same). The tutorials I found use C# to demonstrate the tutorial. I believe the tutorials assumed knowledge the student has an understanding of protocols in order to understand the tutorial such as XML, JSON, etc..

I've written code for 46 years, however, I have not kept up on protocols for web services/web APIs. I'm looking for a beginners tutorial on how to create a web service/web API for a web application. This code will specifically allow me to interact with UPS (United Parcel Service).

Any assistance is most welcome using VB.NET.

Much thanks,
David Bach

When you say "This code will specifically allow me to interact with UPS" , I am not sure if you actually need to get information from UPS in that case you will have to make API calls, or are you going to provide them an API ?

Greetings Ares:

The UPS API is merely the specific API I am working on.

My question was a general question of where to find tutorials using VB.NET to create web services or web APIs.

Much thanks, Ares ...
