I purchased the MEAP + book yesterday and the first few chapters are awesome - good work!

One of the things that surprised me is that you mention that both ASMX and WCF web services are supported in an Azure web role.

Is this correct?
Have you actually tried deploying and running an ASMX web service in the Azure cloud (Staging or Production)?

I cross posted this question on the Azure forums:

I linked to "Azure in action" ( so maybe you'll get a few more readers.

Re: Are ASMX web services supported in an Azure web role?
Sorry it's taken me so long to answer this. With all the changes in Azure, we've taken our eye of the forums slightly. For that I truly apologize.

I can see you''ve already had your question answered in the forum anyways but the answer is yes you can, and yes I have tried.

I'm glad you've enjoyed the MEAP so far and we are working hard to get the latest version out as soon as possible, which will be updated to have the post pdc content.
