    have you tried a google search?

    in any case, have a look at REST :)

    consume SOAP WCF SERVICE in iPhone?

    I have a wcf service which has methods like insert() and get().I am inserting data into database like username,password ,email through insert() method.I am retrieving the details of a user based on username.So for this Am using get() method.Now I want to consume this service in iPhone.How is it possible?
    I have gone through Google and I found examples related just to display some names using 'Hello service' which is not according to my requirement.Moreover my service has two methods where I have gone through Google and couldn't find any of that sort..So I want a solution to how to consume a wcf service which has parameters in methods (insert,get)..

    Any help would be appreciable....

    I've never even heard of WCF, and it appears it's not a popular service which is why you don't see any responses. Perhaps no one here uses it. From reading your posts, I can't even figure out what WCF is.

    update.looked it up on wikipedia. WCF stands for Windows Communications Foundation, so it's not too likely that anyone here uses it or knows much about it.

    You would probably get more help on a windows oriented forum.
