Remotely change webservice application settings

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Services' started by Richard Heesbeen, May 26, 2005.

  1. Hi All,

    I'm writing an webservice which has some settings that need to be loaded
    into the webservice and get used by all instances/connections. I want to be
    able to remotely change the settings (using website) so that a next
    instance usses those settings and save them so when the server restarts they
    also get used.

    I thoughed of the web.config file and just adjust the settings in there but
    is that possible or is there a better way of doing this?

    Hope someone can help me out,

    updating web.config is possible. when it's changed, ASP.NET will restart
    your application and the new changes will be used immediaetly. The downside
    is that you'll have to use the XML APIs directly to do the update if you're
    still using ASP.NET 1.1. In 2.0 there's a proper API to read and write the
    config file.
