WCF Error while receiving the HTTP response to my service

Hi guys I created a service using WCF but when I test my services some completed successfully why some is giving me the error below. Any Idea on how to solve these ? Thanks

An error occurred while receiving the HTTP response to http://localhost:8733/PortOperation/Operator_Service/ws. This could be due to the service endpoint binding not using the HTTP protocol. This could also be due to an HTTP request context being aborted by the server (possibly due to the service shutting down). See server logs for more details.

Answer Source

There are many scenarios when this type of error occurs.

First

Check that have you provided proper [DataContract] and [DataMember]? if this is not provided then this type of error occurs. You have to write [DataContract] above the class which you pass in response, and write [DataMember] above the class member which goes into the client response.

eg.

[DataContract]
class Program
{
  [DataMember] 
  public string Example{get;set}
}

Second

Check in the response if some minvalue of Data type is passed. That means some time data member is not initialized at that time it takes the minvalue. e.g. minValue of int is '-2147483648' so at some time it cannot be serialized and throws an error.

If you want to trace this type of error then add the following code in your server-side web.config

<system.diagnostics>
 <sources>
  <source name="System.ServiceModel" switchValue="Information, ActivityTracing"    propagateActivity="true">
   <listeners>
     <add name="traceListener" type="System.Diagnostics.XmlWriterTraceListener"      initializeData= "D:\Traces.svclog"/>
   </listeners>
  </source>
 </sources>
</system.diagnostics>

I think this should help you.
