In this video we will discuss, how to call WCF Service using jQuery AJAX

We want to retrieve data from the following database table tblEmployee

consuming wcf service using jquery

The retrieved data should be displayed as shown below

jquery call wcf service example

Step 1 : Create SQL Server table and insert employee data

Create table tblEmployee
     Id int primary key identity,
     Name nvarchar(50),
     Gender nvarchar(10),
     Salary int

Insert into tblEmployee values ('Mark', 'Male', 50000)
Insert into tblEmployee values ('Sara', 'Female', 60000)
Insert into tblEmployee values ('John', 'Male', 45000)
Insert into tblEmployee values ('Pam', 'Female', 45000)

Step 2 : Create a stored procedure to retrieve employee data by ID

Create procedure spGetEmployeeById
@Id int
     Select ID, Name, Gender, Salary
     from tblEmployee
     where ID = @Id

Step 3 : Create new web application project. Name it Demo. 

Step 4 : Include a connection string in the web.config file to your database.
<add name="DBCS"
      connectionString="server=.;database=SampleDB;integrated security=SSPI" />

Step 5 : Add a class file to the project. Name it Employee.cs. Copy and paste the following code.

namespace Demo
    public class Employee
        public int ID { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Gender { get; set; }
        public int Salary { get; set; }

Step 6 : Add a new WCF Service (Ajax-enabled). Name it EmployeeService.svc. Copy and paste the following code.

using System;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Activation;

namespace Demo
    [ServiceContract(Namespace = "")]
    [AspNetCompatibilityRequirements(RequirementsMode =
    public class EmployeeService
        public Employee GetEmployeeById(int employeeId)
            Employee employee = new Employee();

            string cs = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DBCS"].ConnectionString;
            using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(cs))
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("spGetEmployeeById", con);
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

                SqlParameter parameter = new SqlParameter();
                parameter.ParameterName = "@Id";
                parameter.Value = employeeId;

                SqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
                while (rdr.Read())
                    employee.ID = Convert.ToInt32(rdr["Id"]);
                    employee.Name = rdr["Name"].ToString();
                    employee.Gender = rdr["Gender"].ToString();
                    employee.Salary = Convert.ToInt32(rdr["Salary"]);

            return employee;

Step 7 : Add an HTML page to the ASP.NET project. Copy and paste the following HTML and jQuery code

    <script src="jquery-1.11.2.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $('#btnGetEmployee').click(function () {
                var empId = $('#txtId').val();
                    url: 'EmployeeService.svc/GetEmployeeById',
                    method: 'post',
                    contentType: "application/json;charset=utf-8",
                    data: JSON.stringify({ employeeId: empId }),
                    dataType: 'json',
                    success: function (data) {
                    error: function (err) {
<body style="font-family:Arial">
    ID :
    <input id="txtId" type="text" style="width: 86px" />
    <input type="button" id="btnGetEmployee" value="Get Employee" />
    <br /><br />
    <table border="1" style="border-collapse: collapse">
            <td><input id="txtName" type="text" /></td>
            <td><input id="txtGender" type="text" /></td>
            <td><input id="txtSalary" type="text" /></td>
