How to: Use Inheritance in a Web Service 

The following code example demonstrates how to use inheritance to create a Web service that performs math calculations. This example illustrates one of the guidelines explained in the topic, Design Guidelines for XML Web Services Created Using ASP.NET.

Example

<%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="Add" %>
using System;
using System.Web.Services;
abstract public class MathService : WebService 
{
   [WebMethod]
   abstract public float CalculateTotal(float a, float b);
}
public class Add : MathService 
{
   [WebMethod]
   override public float CalculateTotal(float a, float b)
   {
       return a + b;
   }
}
public class Subtract : MathService 
{
   [WebMethod]
   override public float CalculateTotal(float a, float b)
   {
       return a - b;
   }
}
public class Multiply : MathService 
{
   [WebMethod]
   override public float CalculateTotal(float a, float b)
   {
       return a * b;
   }
}
public class Divide : MathService 
{
   [WebMethod]
   override public float CalculateTotal(float a, float b)
   {
       if (b==0) 
          return -1;
       else
          return a / b;
   }
}
