Web Service


I'm developing a .NET C# interface to TechDoc document manager where I need to make a Web Service call using XML HTTP POST. Where can I find technical documentation to satisfy the technical requirements so I can successfully make the Web Service call in code?

Thank you.

Hey Jaime,

That particular protocol is known as the BDL (bulk document loader) protocol. It is a little older but it is still viable. We also have a SOAP protocol if you are interested but BDL definitely still works and it is a little faster than SOAP. I will email you the BDL guide and provide you with direct contact info so we can directly support you if need be. Too, we don't hold you up going back and forth on the forums.

Because I'm using .NET C# in Visual Studio (VS) 2017, I'm considering the SOAP protocol also. I've used WSDL and VS has excellent support for SOAP client. Can you please also send the SOAP guied?

Thank you very much for your kind and timely response.
