Configuring ASP.NET Web Service


Hi,

Well today i created a webservice which would fetch me some data from oracle database. The method signature was something like this

public DataSet getEmpInfo

{,,,,,,,,,,,,,}

I was calling this webservice within form’s onLoad inside the a custom entity of Microsoft Dyanmics CRM3,0. 

I deployed it in my machine and when i was opening the my custom entity form inside CRM in my machine, i was able to see the values fetched using ajax calls to webservice.

But for other machines i was getting an internal server error for my ajax call.

Finally the error got resolved when i included this inside the web.config for my webservice

<webServices>
    <protocols>     
        <add name=”HttpPost”/> 
        <add name=”HttpGet”/>  

 </protocols>
</webServices>

By the way, I was using POST in my xmlHttpRequest object Open method.

Plzz check out these links to better understand web services.
