[iis] How can i Make CURL representation of my WCF service?

The following will show you how to test your wcf rest service from command prompt using CURL tool. And CURL is a command line tool for getting or sending files using URL syntax. For this I have created a simple wcf rest service which contains three method as below:

[IService1]

[ServiceContract(SessionMode = SessionMode.NotAllowed)]
public interface IService1
{
    [WebGet(UriTemplate = "date/{year}/{month}/{day}", ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Xml)]
    [OperationContract]
    string GetDate(string day, string month, string year);

    [WebGet(UriTemplate = "greet", ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    [OperationContract]
    string Greeting();

    [WebInvoke(Method = "POST", UriTemplate = "submit", BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.WrappedRequest, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    [OperationContract]
    string Save(string data);

}
[Service1]
public class Service1: IService1
{
    public string GetDate(string day, string month, string year)
    {
        return new DateTime(Convert.ToInt32(year), Convert.ToInt32(month), Convert.ToInt32(day)).ToString("dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy");
    }
   public string Greeting()
    {
        return "Hello World";
    }
   public string Save(string data)
   {
       return data + "Has been saved!";
   }
}

Let’s send request to first method:

[WebGet(UriTemplate = "date/{year}/{month}/{day}", ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Xml)]
    [OperationContract]
    string GetDate(string day, string month, string year);

Then go to command prompt and type following code
curl http://localhost:12576/Service1.svc/date/2012/1/12

Let’s send request to second method from curl:

[WebGet(UriTemplate = "greet", ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    [OperationContract]
    string Greeting();

Then go to command prompt and type following code:
curl http://localhost:12576/Service1.svc/greet

Now,let’s send a post request to third method from command prompt:

[WebInvoke(Method = "POST", UriTemplate = "submit", BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.WrappedRequest, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]

    [OperationContract]

    string Save(string data);

curl  -H “Content-Type: application/json” -H “Accept: application/json” -X POST -d ‘{“data”:”dummy data”}’ http://localhost:12576/Service1.svc/submit
