Deploying Web Services

Deploying Web Services

After you’ve created a Web service, you might need to deploy it from your development system onto production machines. Fortunately, in the .NET Framework, deploying applications, including Web services, is a simple process. To do so, you’ll copy the following Web service files from your development system to a directory on the production machine:

  • The .asmx files  The Web service access point files

  • The .disco or .vsdisco files  Optional discovery files

  • The web.config file  Optional Web configuration files for the Web service

  • The \bin directory  The compiled Web service application
