I am very new to Web Services. I hope my questions will make sense. I need to send an XML file from client to server...
(client pushes the file), and insert the contents of the XML file into a database table. Can I achieve this by writing a Web service? Do I send the XML file using SOAP? Can a Web service be written in VB6 or ASP (not .Net)? Where can I find a "Hello World" example on the Net?
You can send XML from client to server over HTTP in many ways.
HTTP POST XML-RPC (http://www.xmlrpc.org)
SOAP This page has many examples: http://www.15seconds.com/focus/Upload.htm
