Hi Guys,
I need to track the application usage statistics using webservice. Basically i need to write a service which can be used in any application to record the usage of application which is calling this service. or Could be a DLL.
I need idea's for this.

Thanks,
pgmer..

John Thanks for the reply. I know how to write and consume web service in .Net application. My query is i need to capture usage stats record it in DB using webservice. Any help or directions in this would be great.

Bear with me, I'm working up a demo project - I had a long post I had been writing as well, but apparently lost it during the day...

Code Complete.
See attached project.

NOTE The application recorded is always (sic).Net SQL Client Provider, but hostnames, ip addresses, and which web method are recorded. This is not going to be a straight "drop in and go" to plug into any application, but it's a good start!

John,
Thanks a lot for your effort. I will look into code today.

There's a syntax error in one of the exception handlers.. :)
Apparently I did an "Undo" between last compile and packaging up the source.
You'll find it when you try to compile. It's in one the section that handles the update I believe, and instead of :

Try
... <code>
Catch sqlex as exception
    ' stuff
Catch ex as exception
    'other stuff
End try

I have two sqlex exceptions instead of a sqlex and an ex:

Try
... <code>
Catch sqlex as exception
    ' stuff
Catch sqlex as exception
    'other stuff
End try

John,
