Thanks.

FoxWeb gives you full control of the inbound and outbound HTTP payloads, but does not have built-in support for web services, so you will need to implement this yourself. Depending on the technology you want to implement, this can be an incredibly complicated task. For example, you would have to build a lot of functionality if you want to build SOAP-style services. RESTful web services on the other hand can be a lot easier to manage.
 
In both cases the task will be much more complicated if you want to implement authentication through client certificates (which you probably should).
 
We do not have any sample code, but somebody else may want to contribute here.

Hi,
 
We currently have an extensive web site implemented via FoxWeb.
 
A request has been made to be able to access information from the underlying database that the web site maintains.
 
I'm looking into implementing a FoxWeb web service.
 
Do you have an example of a FoxWeb web service or could point me in a direction?
 
In the FoxWeb Forum, I found code that someone had implemented back in 2008 to call a web service that he had written but it didn't show the code for the web service itself (in that case, ws.fwx).
 
TIA,
