    Hi,
    I have a question. If I develop a web service to authenticate log in to an
    image management server, what should be the return type of the web service?
    Can it be an event, like opening the log in window provided by the
    application service? How to do it ?

    Thanks!

    Thank you! The overall goal is to develope a web service to be called by PHP,
    so that after login allowed, storing new image document, and retrieving new
    document can be done by calling it.

    The image server (AppXtender) is used to stored image documents requiring
    secure login.

    Have you ever done that? Thanks a lot.

    Thanks a lot! This helps me move further...You are right, I expected the
    return type of
    the logon method will trigger the guid window the image server generated
    after log in, and then using the user name and password to do more operations
    in the image server, like storing new documents, retrieving current
    documents...I guess to return "an event like opening a window from client
    side" is impossible...Your suggested alternatives sounds more reasonable.
    Does this mean the web service and image server need to be installed in same
    machine? So that the window authertication can be used to very log in? Do you
    know, when the client call such a service, can the client pass the document
    from client into the image server, or need to import the document to the
    server machine first to store to image server?

    Very appreciate your help and advice!
