A web service that calculates body mass index.

Weight:
kg.
Height:
cm.



Although written to be accurate, this program is for demonstration purposes and should not be used to calculate actual BMI.
About the program:

The BMI Web Service is a .NET web service that uses ASP.NET, XML and SOAP. The entire program is composed of two separate web services, proxy classes and an aspx page which acts as a client to the web service.

BMI stands for "Body Mass Index". BMI is an index that is a function of a person's weight and height. It is often used to determine whether or not a person is under or over normal weight ranges.

The following files are used in this program:

  1. bmiservice.asmx: The BMI web service. You can access the actual web service here: http://www.beetledev.com/webservices/bmiservice.asmx
  2. converterservice.asmx: A service that converts lbs and inches to kilograms and centimeters. You can access the actual service here: http://www.beetledev.com/webservices/converterservice.asmx
  3. BmiService.dll: The compiled proxy library to access the BMI web service. The aspx client page needs this library in order to access the BMI web service. This file is created by using wsdl to create a .cs file. The .cs file is then compiled into the library.
  4. ConverterService.dll: The compiled proxy library to access the Converter service. The aspx client needs this library in order to access the Converter web service. This library is created the same way as the BmiService.dll library.
  5. bmiclient.aspx: This aspx page acts as the client to the web services.
