Webservices and DotNetNuke

Jan 23, 2012 at 4:59 PM

Hi,

Given that iWeb seems to have been, for all practical purposes, sunsetted ... what is your recommendation for building webservices into a DotNetNuke installation?  In particular, DotNetNuke 6.x?

 

Thanks!

1) Still use IWeb
2) Just look at the source code and see how IWeb connects.
3) More web service examples here: http://dnnsilverlight.adefwebserver.com/

I'm interested in adding webservices to a DotNetNuke site that returns JSON objects rather than XML.  Do you have any thoughts on that?  I suppose that I could modify iWeb to do that.  

Would it be possible (easily) to add a single service that returns JSON without needing to perform surgery on the whole module?

In my opinion you would need to start over to implement JSON. While it is possible to create JSON manually in code, you really want to use WCF. The WCF we have in IWeb WCF is a much older version that does not have JSON.
