Build & Deployment problem.


J

James

A colleague of mine has written a web service and a SoapExtension that I
must reference from my windows mobile 5.0 app (developed in VS2005).

My app was working fine when it referenced just the web service, deployed ok
to a real windows mobile 5.0 device and also to the emulators from Visual
Studio 2005. As soon as the SoapExtension was added (it is a separate
assembly), the project suddenly tries to include all sorts of assemblies
that are not dependencies of the Mobile App, the SoapExtension or the Web
Service (when I look in my MobileApp\bin\Debug folder there are Dll's like
System.Data.OracleClient.dll that should not be there). Then, when I try and
deploy the app to an emulator or a real device, the device does not have
sufficient memory for all the Dll's.

It this a problem with the compact framework, because we created a test
windows forms app, referenced the web service and the SoapExtension and this
problem does not occur.

Any idea's on how to get around this?

Cheers

James

Hmm seems strange...what happens if you remove the SoapExtensionAttribute
from your Web Service proxy method but still deploy the SoapExtension
assembly?

Probebly not related but I did notice your priority field in your
SoapExtensionAttribute is not initialized.

Hi Simon,

I tried what you suggested and instead of referencing the SoapExtension
assembly from my project, I just deployed it which worked. If I re-add the
reference though, the problem reoccurrs.

I've just thought, in a windows app, I would put the following lines into my
config file. What do I do in a mobile app where I dont have a proper .config
file?


<system.web>

<webServices>

<soapExtensionTypes>

<add type="SoapExtensionLib.EncryptExtension, SoapExtensionLib" priority="1"
group="High" />

</soapExtensionTypes>

You don't need to specify soapExtensionTypes in your config file as well as
an Attribute class. Your EncryptExtensionAttribute is written so you can
individually select the required methods that will use your implementation
of SoapExtension. Whereas the config file will apply the extension to all
members. The attribute class is then specified in the Web Service proxy
class that WSDL.exe creates for you. By the way, group="High" is invalid.
Not sure what the CLR will translate that to but this needs to be either 0
or 1. 0 means config attributes are executed first whereas setting it to 1
will execute Attribute configured extensions first in order of priority for
each group of course.

I think the fact that priority in your Attribute class *might* be the cause.
Try setting it to 1 and try it again.

Also in your Attribute class set your overridden method ExtensionType to
return the full name inc namespace of your SoapExtension: ie:
SoapExtensionLib.EncryptExtension.

Can you show us your SoapExtension code?

Simon.

A colleague of mine has written a web service and a SoapExtension that
I must reference from my windows mobile 5.0 app (developed in VS2005).

My app was working fine when it referenced just the web service,
deployed ok to a real windows mobile 5.0 device and also to the
emulators from Visual Studio 2005. As soon as the SoapExtension was
added (it is a separate assembly), the project suddenly tries to
include all sorts of assemblies that are not dependencies of the
Mobile App, the SoapExtension or the Web Service (when I look in my
MobileApp\bin\Debug folder there are Dll's like
System.Data.OracleClient.dll that should not be there). Then, when I
try and deploy the app to an emulator or a real device, the device
does not have sufficient memory for all the Dll's.

It this a problem with the compact framework, because we created a
test windows forms app, referenced the web service and the
SoapExtension and this problem does not occur.

Any idea's on how to get around this?

Cheers

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your reply. We have now initialized the Priority with a default
value, but I have realised that the real problem is in the proxy - there is
no reference to the EncryptExtensionAttribute above the method calls.

Why would this be missing?

Cheers

James



Simon Hart said:
You don't need to specify soapExtensionTypes in your config file as well
as an Attribute class. Your EncryptExtensionAttribute is written so you
can individually select the required methods that will use your
implementation of SoapExtension. Whereas the config file will apply the
extension to all members. The attribute class is then specified in the Web
Service proxy class that WSDL.exe creates for you. By the way,
group="High" is invalid. Not sure what the CLR will translate that to but
this needs to be either 0 or 1. 0 means config attributes are executed
first whereas setting it to 1 will execute Attribute configured extensions
first in order of priority for each group of course.

I think the fact that priority in your Attribute class *might* be the
cause. Try setting it to 1 and try it again.

Also in your Attribute class set your overridden method ExtensionType to
return the full name inc namespace of your SoapExtension: ie:
SoapExtensionLib.EncryptExtension.

Hi James,

Failing to include the Attribute in the proxy will not give you the symtoms
you are getting. Failing to include it will result in the Soap extension not
being invoked during method calls.

But going back to your question, one thing to bear in mind is VS.NET IDE
will overwrite any changes you make to your proxy via the IDE or if using
WSDL.exe direct this will still overwrite any changes you make. So when you
update your proxy ensure you put the extension back into the proxy method
definition headers.

Cheers
Simon.

Can you show us your SoapExtension code?

Simon.

A colleague of mine has written a web service and a SoapExtension
that I must reference from my windows mobile 5.0 app (developed in
VS2005).

My app was working fine when it referenced just the web service,
deployed ok to a real windows mobile 5.0 device and also to the
emulators from Visual Studio 2005. As soon as the SoapExtension
was added (it is a separate assembly), the project suddenly tries
to include all sorts of assemblies that are not dependencies of
the Mobile App, the SoapExtension or the Web Service (when I look
in my MobileApp\bin\Debug folder there are Dll's like
System.Data.OracleClient.dll that should not be there). Then, when
I try and deploy the app to an emulator or a real device, the
device does not have sufficient memory for all the Dll's.

It this a problem with the compact framework, because we created a
test windows forms app, referenced the web service and the
SoapExtension and this problem does not occur.

Any idea's on how to get around this?

Cheers

James
