If so I have a question!
OK - here''s a summary. I can get into specifics if someone thinks they can help.
We are redesigning a thick client to a thin client. My portion is an export. It''s a set of text files. Creating those is easy as we are creating DB views that actually put all the data together and do all the heavy lifting in terms of logic. So I will just roll through the views and spit out the data.
The problem lies in that this process currently takes between 2-3 hours! Now with putting the logic in views we will cut that significantly we hope. But the desire is to have this process run asynchronous to the web app. So the user will kick it off and can close the browser and retrieve it later. That''s where I''m stuck. Do I create a Web Service that creates the export and is called asynchronously from the web app? I''ve researched online, but my weakness is applying examples to my situation. Plus most of the examples call the web service via a thick client. The irony here is that at my old job we did this exact thing, but I didn''t design it and can''t remember how and I don''t have the code!
OUCH! I''m not asking for that much. I''m asking for instructions on creating a service. I''ve looked online and can''t see to find what I "think" I''m looking for. Ther has to be base instructions for creating a service. The heavy duty work inside I can write. I thought it was worth a shot on here to see what people might know. Thanks.Date: 4/1/2009 12:11:46 PM
try a programing specific forum.
I don''t know how much help you will get as your asking for $10k worth of work for free.
