You can add static page methods to an ASP.NET page and mark them as Web methods. You can then call these methods from script as if they were part of a Web service, but without creating a separate .asmx file. To create Web methods on a page, import the System.Web.Services namespace and add a WebMethodAttribute attribute to each static method that you want to expose. The methods must be marked public.
