    Calling a web service from a windows application

    Hello everybody,
    Is it possible to call a web service from a windows application ?
    If it is I must do it using C# and .NET 2003.

    Thank you all

    No, you don't have to use C#. You can also use Visual Basic, although it's easier in the .NET version.

    Calling a web service from a windows application

    Thank you both for your answers.
    I would like to ask you what do you think about using a WSDL class in my project instead of XMLHTTPRequest object ?
    The thing is the web application and the C# windows application will be installed in the same domain and in the same network.

    Please let me know if you think this is a good choice.

    Thank you again for your help

    Yes, a WSDL class should work. It simply generates HttpWebRequest code for you automatically.
