consume web service via httpwebrequest

hello all,

trying to consume a simple web service using httpwebrequest instead of
generating a proxy class.

code for simple web service:

Imports System.Web.Services

<System.Web.Services.WebService(Namespace :=
"http://tempuri.org/SoapServer/Service1")> _
Public Class Service1
Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService

<WebMethod()> _
Public Function HelloWorld() As String
Return "Hello World"
End Function
End Class

code to consume web service using httpwebrequest object:

Dim sTmp As String
sTmp = "" & _
"<?xml version=" + Chr(34) + "1.0" + Chr(34) + " encoding="
+ Chr(34) + "utf-8" + Chr(34) + "?>" & _
"<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi=" + Chr(34) +
"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" + Chr(34) + " xmlns:xsd=" +
Chr(34) + "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" + Chr(34) + " xmlns:soap="
+ Chr(34) + "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" + Chr(34) + ">"
& _
"<soap:Body>" & _
"<HelloWorld xmlns=" + Chr(34) +
"http://tempuri.org/SoapServer/Service1" + Chr(34) + " />" & _
"</soap:Body>" & _
"</soap:Envelope>"

objHttpRequest =
WebRequest.Create("http://localhost/SoapServer/Service1.asmx")
objHttpRequest.Method = "POST"
objHttpRequest.ContentType = "text/xml"
objHttpRequest.ContentLength = sTmp.Length
objHttpRequest.Headers.Add("SOAPAction",
"http://tempuri.org/SoapServer/Service1/HelloWorld")

myWriter = New StreamWriter(objHttpRequest.GetRequestStream())
myWriter.Write(sTmp)

objHttpResponse = objHttpRequest.GetResponse
objResponseStream = New
StreamReader(objHttpResponse.GetResponseStream())
sResult = objResponseStream.ReadToEnd
objResponseStream.Close()

=================================================================
=================================================================

the code fails at objHttpResponse = objHttpRequest.GetResponse, an
exception is thrown stating the request timed out.

pointers appreciated..

thanks in advance

Make sure to use as namespace your domain and make
sure the server, where the service is hosted, is up and running (try
to load directly the asmx to see if it works) ...
