I wanted to see what the best way was of calling the geometry service to carry out a Buffer operation on ArcGIS Server 10, without using the SOM. Ideally I want to consume the REST API, using a wrapper so that it was easy to call from c#.

Is the GISClient the way forward? From what I can determine, it looks like you only get stateless (and thus low footprint) access to the Mapserver and Geocode services.

I know that I could construct a call using a URL, but I wondered if there was C# API that wrapped the REST API for you.

Not quite sure why you would want to write something of your own when you could use the built in geometry service. Here is a sample of that in action: https://developers.arcgis.com/en/javascript/jssamples/util_buffergraphic.html
