WEB SERVICE HELP!

Postby DollarBill » February 15th, 2010, 4:32 pm

Do you know anything about web services? I don't!!!
I need to call one from a plug-in I'm writing. I need to find if it's possible real fast. Anyone care to share or point me at a resource that can help.
THANKS, NERDS!

It looks like I could call web service methods from within a browser with just a url?

That would be ideal because I know the SDK I'm working in allows me to do a OpenUrl type of deallymabobber.

Sadly, the success of this project directly affects how much cash I have for cat repairs.

Also, the plot has thickened. I need to send a JPEG to a web service. I guess in its code form? Any of you web-developing technosmarties have any idea?

Okay, I think I have followed the trail to the conclusion that I need to somehow get the JPEG into its binary string form so that I can convert that to base-64 so that I can send that in the string to the web service.

Just in case this thread ends up being searched on and found by others trying to upload jpegs to web services. I ended up using cURL to send a SOAP request with the BASE64 image string embeded in the xml. IT WORKS!
