I am new to WCF web service. I have only consumed the web services previously, so dont have much experience in developing webservices. My task here is to emulate a previously exsting web service but i dont have access to its source code. My basic requirement
is that no changes should be made to the client application to incorporate the dummy web service.
I would like to have your suggessions regarding my approach. Some of the points (client application perspective) to note are:
1. From client application we add the reference through "Add Web Service" and url i give is
http://localhost/Dummy/DummyService.svc?wsdl. So my first question is can i go with WCF to acheive this?
2. The web service uses Request/Response model. We have to create request and response objects for each operations. How can I achieve this? Do I have to create Request and Response classes for each of the operations i expose through my webservice?
3. Operations are basically CRUD operations to a database. Can i achieve this in a similar way to what we usually implement using ADO.Net? Is there anything else that i should consider when it comes to web services?
It would be great if some body can help me.
