What's new in the Visual FoxPro Community
Thursday, May 16, 2013
West Wind Technologies has released an update to the Web Service Proxy Generator, which automates the process for creating FoxPro clients to complex SOAP 1.x Web Services. The tool makes calling Web Services as easy as calling methods on a generated FoxPro proxy class. This release adds the ability to access some natively unsupported .NET types like Long and Single from FoxPro. A new HttpLogin() method has been added to the FoxPro proxy to simplify remote authentication in a more discoverable fashion. The Proxy Wizard now automatically requests Administrative Permissions from Windows UAC to run without permission failures. The Proxy Generator is available as shareware and registered users can simply re-download the registered version for a free update.
