I am working on a project with flex as the front end which communicates to .net web services for the data needed.
I am writing the .net web services and returning the result as XML. As it is XML and the structure is mainly element based rather than attribute based, bandwidth is a consideration. there will be a bunch of web services accessed at a time. The response has to be super swift considering the criticality of the project. I would like to know is there any way where I can compress the data in .net web service and decompress it in flex before using it.
I tried GZip but found from some forums that GZip is not supported in flex.
there was a suggestion to use WSCompression in WSE 3.0. But dont have enough information on that. Will be thank ful if somebody can provide some links or refer some books from where I can pick these topics.
Thanks in advance.
FlourineFx is an opensource tool that implements remoting in .net webservices.
no need to change existing .net code.
U can acheive an unmatchable performance increase in ur application.
just google abt using flourineFx ..many tutorials
If bandwidth was a consideration, have you looked at RemoteObjects? it's faster and more efficient.
