Executing ASP.NET Web Services from Internet Explorer

The .NET Framework’s ASP.NET Web services default to document/literal format; .NET doesn’t support rpc/literal format directly. ZipCodeResolver is an ASP.NET Web service developed with Visual Studio .NET that includes documentation for each Web method. ASP.NET automatically generates a Web service help page when you open a file with an .asmx extension in a browser. As an example, http://webservices.eraserver.net/zipcoderesolver/zipcoderesolver.asmx displays the help page shown in Figure 31.1. Web service help pages let you determine quickly whether the service is operational and has the potential to fulfill your needs.

Figure 31.1. ASP.NET Web services created with Visual Studio .NET provide Web service help pages with a list of Web methods and optional service documentation.
