    Web Services


    How can I enable my machine (Win XP and having VS.NET beta 2) for something
    like IIS so that I could successfully create web service projects? I mean
    is there any thing like developers version of web servers ? How can I easily
    configure something like that?

    TIA

    You need XP Pro. IIS is on the cd. Goto Control Panel - Add/Remove
    Software - Add/Remove Windows Components and it should be in the list. IIS
    will not work with XP Home version.

    balanbe,

    To install a web server on XP Home edition, you have two choices.

    1. Download Java at www.java.sun.com and then download any number of fine
    Java web servers (www.orionserver.com or www.apache.org are two good ones),
    this will take you about 10 minutes total and cost $0.00.

    2. Upgrade your ENTIRE OS to XP Pro so that you can install IIS. This will
    take many hours and cost about $300.00.

    PS: Welcome to the MS World!!!

    Max, there are other solutions than java and upgrading.
    Do a search on download.com for example and you'll see there are lots of
    free web servers for windows.

    A small clarification. Download a webserver(i.e. apache) and an application
    server (i.e. tomcat) or a combination webserver/application server(I think
    maybe Tomcat is now this) And then download Java.

    And then what Max said.

    That does web services ??? A webserver typically just serves up webpages.

    http://www.orionserver.com is a full J2EE (MS MTS, Messaging Queue, IIS,
    SMPT, ASP, etc) in a 30MB download.
    It is also the engine of Oralcele 9i.

    Another free solution found at: http://www.jboss.org/
    Hope this helps,
    max

    PS: I would love to see a version of .NET that I can download and install
    in less than 10 minutes for windows XP home.

    Didn't read the post carefully enough. Web services no. Web servers yes.

    And you didn't even tell him about the $10,000 developer fee!

    Just a thought: I have Personal Web Server running on Windows 95 for
    free? Does that count?

    Yes, well, I'd like to buy an anti-gravity machine so's I can fly to
    the tops of tall buildings and teach those darn pigeons a lesson.

    Mike: You're spewing misinformation again. I have written a Web service for
    managing these newsgroups (moving, deleting posts, etc.) I use it, the DevX
    editorial staff use it, and no one has had to pay Microsoft $1 for the
    privilege.

    Hey, and no one paid me even $1 either! :-)

    Zane: Yes, thank you! :-) I will probably pay you for your NewsServer
    component very soon, though. Any plans to release a .NET version of that?
