Calling a Web Service Method Asynchronously does not work in Console Application

I have a web service that has a CreateReport method that generates a report based on the specified criteria. When I call this method Synchronously using a Windows Application or Console Application, the call works fine and the report is created. When I call this method ASynchronously (CreateReportASync) using Windows Application the report is created. When I call this method ASynchronously (CreateReportASync) using Console Application the web service does not even get the call.  I am using VS2005 and .Net Framework 2.0.  So the proxy is automatically created with the Async methods.  I am not really interested the result of the method call, so I do not add a Callback Delegate.  

Deploy XBAP application with WCF Service Reference into multiple environments

Hi, we have a multiple environment setup (local, Development servers, QA servers, prod servers, etc.) and we are building an XBAP application that uses WCF Services to connect to databases.  We code and unit test everything locally and then deploy to our Development servers for more thorough unit testing.  The issue that we are having is that we don't see how to update the deployed XBAP application to use the Development server deployed WCF Service.  The only way we've been able to do this is by having to change the reference on my local machine, complie, and redeploy the XBAP.Question:  How do we configure a deployed XBAP's Service Reference to point to the same service on a different server than what it was originally compiled/deployed with?  (Like in some configuration file...NOTE: but we also don't see a config file after deploying the XBAP.)  We don't want to have to update the Service Reference for QA, Prod, Training, Stage, etc. on our local machines, compile and redeploy every time we need to migrate the application to a new environment.Thanks!

Consume the Siebel On Demand web service in .Net console application.



I have Siebel On demand web service wsdl, I want to consume Siebel OD web service in my .Net console application.

I want to update Siebel On Demand picklist(Table) from .Net client

I can implement this from below 2 ways.

1. Add web reference and VS will automatically create proxy class.

2. Dynamically create input soap message and pass soap message across with help web service extension’s webrequest and webresponse methods.

Please advice which one of above process will be good in performance, scalability of client, lightness of invocation of web service.

 And also let me know other way for performance enhance

Unable to add reference to Class Library from a Workflow Console Application (VS 10 beta 2)

I got a really strange problem. I am using the beta 2 version of Visual Studio 10.

I have a Class Library, Activity Library and a Workflow Console Application. From the Workflow Console Application I want to make a reference to the Class Library (I've made some BusinessEntities there..), but I get the following error: 'The type or namespace name '<namespace name>' does not exist in the namespace blabla..

I made the reference, added it by typing using etcetera, but still getting error, also get an error where I import the reference (in the using part)

Can anyone help me out with this ? Is this a bug in Visual Studio 10 beta 2, or am I doing something wrong ?

Hi guys,

Custom tool error: Failed to generate code for the service reference 'CompanyService'. Please che


A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

Looking for a simple Service and Console Client REST sample implementing BASIC authentication


Does anyone know of a C# code sample demonstrating WCF REST services and console test client with OperationContracts (GET and POST) implementing mutiple paramaters using BASIC authentication? Also, perhaps, using Fiddler as a test client as well? I have searched high and low for something like this, but have not had any success.
