Questions about .disco and .vsdisco files

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Services' started by Robert Scheer, Feb 17, 2004.

  1. Hi.

    I know the basics to create and consume a web service, but till now I
    didn't understand exactly the benefits of the .vsdisco and .disco
    files. I have some questions about them.

    1)The .vsdisco files allows an application to discover what web
    services are installed on a server, as I tested here. Is it not
    dangerous? It seems that something is searching for certain files on
    the web server.

    2)In which situations a .vsdisco file or a .disco file is better than
    add a reference to the exact .asmx file? I have made my references to
    the .asmx files instead of the disco files.

    Thanks for your time.
