MsdotnetUse the Web Services to access data from with a Visualforce page and/or a Microsoft ASP.NET Web form. Go ahead and mash it up!
This article will take you through the process of creating custom logic, then demonstrate how to call that logic from within a application or from a custom application hosted outside

You can learn how to do the following:

  • Create a custom function and expose it as a Web Service.
  • Create a Visualforce application that calls the custom function and displays the results within a Visualforce page.
  • Create a Microsoft ASP.NET Web form that retrieves data from the Web Service and displays the results within an ASP.NET Web page.
  • Use an email address to look up a lead in a account and return the leadâ??s listed mailing address, which can be used to pre-populate an online order form.

When you are done, you should understand how to do the following:

  • Use Apex code (a procedural on-demand language that is part of the platform) to expose a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)-based Web Service from within
  • Use Visualforce to consume the SOAP-based Web Service in a application.
  • Use Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 to consume the SOAP-based application from an external ASP.NET Web site.

Happy learning!
