My Simple Indigo Service

Now onto some real infocard work. To begin with, I developed a simple webservice and client using Indigo. This service basically displays the raw SOAP which it is sent:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

//This is the Indigo namespace
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.Xml;

namespace InfoCardService
Here, I'm using an interface to define the service contract.
Service contracts are explicit in Indigo, and can be distict
from application/class level contract as seen here.
interface ISimpleService
//A very raw service - interface accepts low level message type.
[OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
void Receive(System.ServiceModel.Message msg);

public partial class SimpleService : Form, ISimpleService
//selfhosting ServiceHost using generics to be types to my implementation
ServiceHost sh;

public SimpleService()

private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

public void Receive(System.ServiceModel.Message msg)
MessageBox.Show("New Message:\n\n" + msg.ToString());

private void Start()
sh = new ServiceHost();

static void Main(string[] args)
SimpleService service = new SimpleService();
