It’s simple to create web service client Activity for Trident. By the web service client I mean that the activity will contact some web service to get some data (either synchronously or a synchronously).

Creating such activity is no different than making other activities. Inside the activity class you need to write your client code. In execute method you will contact the server to invoke your functionality.

There are few Web Activities sample in the Trident source code. Download the latest source code, the web activity project is located \Trident\Product\Activities\TridentWebActivities.
