• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

webservice Vs xml webservice


Apr 1, 2003
i'm confused by the term webservice and xml webservice.
Can some explain what is difference between the two with regard to .net.
I'm writing a webservice to update the database(remote location) by passing a dataset, in these case should i call it as webservice or xml webservice?
Plz explain?

For all intents and purposes "XML webservice" and "webservice" are one in the same. "XML" simply denotes that the webservice uses XML, which all .NET webservices and the majority of other non-proprietary webservices use as well.
