Hi Team,

I'm creating a ticketing tool.
I am new to programming.

I was using a direct connection string to connect with the DB, which works fine, but then I faced some road blocks with that approach.

Now I am planning to use a web service or WCF to do the same, hence I need help - no idea how to start this.

What is the architecture of your system? Are you coding a Business Logic? Do you plan to poll the database through the Web Service? A common approach is to encapsulate your business logic in a classic Web Service or WCF Service. That will internally poll the Database and provide result to your presentation layer.

You can learn about Web Service and WCF at msdn. There are loads of documents.

I didn't understand much wut evr u said, but what i can tell you is that the 80 % of the tool is already created, to create the connection string user gets a pop for the first time and the connection string gets stored in the registry, i want to do a same kind of a thing using web services, please let me know in details wut do i need - this is not a client project, this is something which we are going to use internally hence not much complications needed
