Web Services .NET Wrapper Overview


Aculab Cloud provides a number of Web Services that implement features such as initiating outbound services, managing files, sending SMS messages and managing telephone numbers and other resources on the cloud.

You can make requests to these web services directly or use this high-level language wrapper.

The Wrapper Library

The wrapper is supplied as a .Net class library Aculab.Cloud.WebServiceWrappers. It is available from nuget.

The PlatformAccount class identifies the cloud and user account on which the web service is to be called.
For each Web Service suite a set of classes exists that wraps the web service requests and unwraps the JSON format responses.

The main wrapper classes available on Aculab Cloud are:


A number of C# samples that illustrate how to use the various wrapper classes are available for download from Web Services.

Please note that in the interests of clarity these samples are short on the kind of error handling and diagnostic aspects that would typically be required in a live environment.

How to Build and Run Them

These samples can be built using Visual Studio 2017 or later, depending on which version of .Net you require (versions up to and including .Net 6.0 are supported).
The Wrapper Library reference is downloaded automatically via NuGet.

The project files target multiple versions of .Net Framework and .Net Core.
To build for a single target, edit the project file and change <TargetFrameworks> to <TargetFramework> and select a single target.

The samples are console applications that require command line parameters to be supplied.
