Web Services and the .NET Framework Building a Web Service component using C# and .NET

The material explains the various steps that are involved in creating a Web Service Component using C# and the .NET Framework. The author builds a web service called OIDServer that clients can use to generate a unique Object Identity (OID) string. The generated OID string is unique, and can be used by the client wherever unique keys are needed - either for COM GUIDs, or to act as a unique primary key for a database table, etc. Since the Web Service class is deployed on a Web Server, any "Internet" client can access it and make use of its services - as opposed to COM components which can only be accessed by COM clients.
