What is Web Service
A "web service is the communication platform between two different or same platform applications that allows to use their web method."
Once a web service is created and hosted on the server in the internet it can be consumed by any kind of application developed in any technology.

Let us implement create a sample Asp.Net Application and add web service in ASP.Net application. Open Visual Studio and click on  File menu=> New=> Project.

Open the file Role.asmx.cs and write the following code

 <%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="Role" %>
using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
using System.Data;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Web.Script;
using System.Web.Script.Serialization;
using System.Web.Script.Services;
using System.Text;
[WebService(Namespace = "")]
[WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo= WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
public class Role : System.Web.Services.WebService
    public string Add(string val1, string val2)
        return (val1 + " " + val2).ToString();


Attaching the WebMethod attribute to a Public method indicates that you want the method exposed as part of the XML Web service. You can also use the properties of this attribute to further configure the behavior of the XML Web service method. The WebMethod attribute provides the following properties

  • 1. BufferResponse
  • 2. CacheDuration
  • 3. Description
  • 4. EnableSession
  • 5. MessageName
  • 6. TransactionOption

Now right click on project name “webservice” to add WebService.aspx like as  following figure.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="WebService.aspx.cs"
Inherits="webservice.WebService" %>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <table border="2" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
                    <td align="right">
                        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Enter 1st Name"></asp:Label>
                    <td align="left">
                        <asp:TextBox ID="txtnum1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

                        <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text="Enter 2nd Name"></asp:Label>
                    <td align="left">
                        <asp:TextBox ID="txtnum2" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                    <td align="right">
                        <asp:Label ID="Label3" runat="server" Text="Result"></asp:Label>
                    <td align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblResult" runat="server"></asp:Label>
                    <td align="center">&nbsp;
                    <td align="center">
                        <asp:Button ID="btnSub" runat="server" Text="Submit" />
    <script src="/Scripts/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $("[id*=btnSub]").click(function () {
                var val1 = $.trim($("[id*=txtnum1]").val());
                var val2 = $.trim($("[id*=txtnum2]").val());
                    url: '<%=ResolveUrl("~/MyWebService.asmx/Add")%>',
                    data: '{ val1:"' + val1 + '",val2:"' + val2 + '"}', // parameter map
                    type: "POST", // data has to be Posted                   
                    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                    timeout: 120000,
                    dataType: "json",
                    success: function (result) {
                    error: function (xhr, status) {
                return false;
