add service reference

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 

Hi,

I have a web application for my website and I included a web services there.

From a separate windows application I am calling that web service..

I have no issue calling the web service on the browse and I am getting the description but when using the Add Service Reference from my windows application project I am getting this error.. why?

The document at the url http://localhost:62169/websrv/app_reg.asmx was not recognized as a known document type.
The error message from each known type may help you fix the problem:
- Report from 'DISCO Document' is 'Discovery document at the URL http://localhost:62169/websrv/app_reg.asmx could not be found.'.
 - The document format is not recognized (the content type is 'application/xhtml+xml; charset=utf-8').
- Report from 'WSDL Document' is 'There is an error in XML document (3, 2).&#

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

Cannot get service reference for Net.tcp service hosted in IIS7

  
HiI've got a service that I want to host in IIS7. The service runs over net.tcp (currently without security), but I am unable to create a service reference to it, or call it, using the net.tcp protocol. My event log is populated with lots of errors related to ASP.NET and System.ServiceModel, 3.0.0.0The relevant services are installed and running (net.tcp port sharing service and net.tcp listener adapter).O/S : Window7 RTMDevStudio: 2008I publish the webservice to IIS7 and I get a valid page when navigating to the published .svc file (which tells me to use svtutil.exe and point it at the net.tcp endpoint).For that, I get this error :    The message could not be dispatched because the service at the endpoint address 'net.tcp://gedm-desktop.profiledc01.appdevelop.local/ManageAVMEP/ManageAVMAgent.svc/mex' is unavailable for the protocol of the address.Googling the problem leads me down several blind alleys :(I cannot determine what is causing the net.tcp listener to keep stopping? Everything is fine if I use the wsHttpBinding.Any tips or pointers to a course of action would be appreciated.ThanksGed My event log is full of errors (here is a sample) :-------An error occurred while trying to listen for the URL '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT/ManageAVMEP'.

Can't Add Service Reference in VS 2010 to a net.tcp endpoint

  
I've got a service running (well, it doesn't crash), but when I try to add a Service Reference to it, I keep getting Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'net.tcp://localhost:55555/mex'. Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'net.tcp://localhost:55555/mex'. If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.

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!

How do I generate service reference activities in my rehosted designer

  
My desginer is used to create lots of xamlx workflows.  These are hosted in app fabric. From Visual Studio I can add a service reference that points to my workflows, and it generates activities in my toolbar that I can use to call my service from another workflow. I'd like to do the same thing from my rehosted designer.  I figured it would be something like calling svcutil.exe, but couldn't find any information on this. Does anybody know how to create xaml activities by pointing at a service for a workflow designer rehost?   CheersJason Bolstad

How to generate service reference for Workflow service from command line?

Problem adding a Service Reference

  

Hello all.

I am developing a Web Application using Visual Studio 2010 in witch I have to add a Service Reference to http://dev.virtualearth.net/webservices/v1/geocodeservice/geocodeservice.svc?wsdl.

The problem is that my company's network requires a proxy authentication. So when I enter the "Add Service Reference" dialog, paste the url and click "go" I get a "(407) Proxy Authentication Required" error and cannot add the service.

I also tried using svcutil but the result, obviously, was the same.

How can I work around this? Is there somewhere I can specify the required proxy? Googling around, I found some comments that it can be specified in the Web.config, but I can't find more details on how to do this.

Thanks in advance.


Cannot reference dll in windows service

  

Hi!

I've created a windows service in VS 2010 which references the model conveniently placed in a separate project which compiles to a dll. I have no problem referencing this dll in other parts of my solution (web apps), but in my windows services the following symptoms display:

  1. Compiler error: The type or namespace %%% cannot be found (are you missing....
  2. I add a reference to %%% (directly to a dll copy or to the project, makes no difference).
  3. The compile error disappears.
  4. I build.
  5. The compile error reappears.

Using fw4.

What's up with that?

Edit: I can add and use other dlls ofcourse. Third party and microsoft's.


Add Service reference not updaing the client apps web.config file in .Net Framework 4.0

  

Hi Team

I am doing some experiments with WCF on .Net 4.0. I have created a service in 4.0 and add a new empty web application to consume my Service. When i added a service reference from the IDE, i can see the web.config file is not updated with the Servcie end points. How do i solve this issue?

My web.config in the client looks like this after adding the service reference.

WCF session client service reference "State" is not updated when the server side has closed

  

I am using vb.net (Visual Studio 2008 with framework 3.5). I have a server that exposes several services requiring sessions. I am using wsHttpBinding for all. One of my requirements is to allow non-dot net third parties to access these services. When a client connects to a service and then some time later the server goes away, the state of the connection is still reporting "open".

Currently I have implemented a "ping" function on the server. My client calls this function every 5 to 10 seconds and if the server does shutdown, I get alerted with an exception error. This works, but I was wondering if there is a way where I don't have to call my ping function?

I don't want to use a dual connection binding and I was hoping to use the connection state variable? But, I don't know how to get it to update by itself. The client user application could just wait until it goes to invoke a service method, but I was wondering if there was another way.

Thanks in advance!!

 


Can a table name impact generating the service client when creating Service Reference?

  

I have a new WCF service I'm writing under VS2010 and IIS 7.5.  The service includes a table named Client.

When I built my test class and added the service reference, the first test was confirming the creation of the client.

My service reference did not generate any client that I could call .Open on!!!! I was wondering if it is due to that table name???

 Edited to add that I tested the service through the browser and it brings up the page and XAML fine.

Thanks for any assistance!

On adding WCF Service reference element is not created

  

Hi Friends,

I am using x.509 certificate based authentication in my WCF service. In development stage, I created a x.509 certificate using makecert utility. Installed it on my local machine. Added the reference to the certificate in my WCF service. When I added the service reference to my Test App, following element got created in the app.config file of the Test App.

            <endpoint address="http://localhost/MyService/MyService.svc"
                binding="wsHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="wsHttpEndpoint"

'Add Service Reference' not working for multiple include statements

  

I'm using VS 2010 (.NET 4.0) and I cannot use 'Add Service Reference' to generate my .NET proxy client since looks like using 'Add Service Reference' (svcutil.exe) option doesn’t work if there are multiple include statements for the schemas in the wsdl. Using "Add Web Reference" (wsdl.exe) option does work to consume this kind of wsdl but having issues passing UsernameToken.

My understanding is it generates WCF client only if 'Add Service Reference' option is used and not 'Add Web Reference'.

The web service is from the 3rd party, so I cannot modify it and they expect UsernameToken in the SOAP header.

Here’s the url to get the package that co

I need the actual service reference to the wcf object to be dynamic.  How can I switch between servers (server1, server2) with the same exact signatures and data contracts?

 

Right now I have to right click and add service reference.  I want to know how I can change the service reference to point to server 1 or server 2 at runtime
