What I would like to know is whether there is any tool out there that can generate a WCF
Server stub for us, given WSDL & XSD. I am not talking about generating a client proxy - I am talking about generating the skeleton of a server (web service) based on supplied WSDL and XSD.
In other words it would generate a Service class, the Service data structures, the service interfaces etc, with the WCF appropropriate attributes applied where necessary to match the WSDL.
I realise it's an unusual request but we are needing to integrate with a web service that is not directly accessible to us (thinked locked down installation, defence etc) and we were thinking of building a "dummy version" of the web service (since it is
very simple) so we can first test against it before moving onto the real thing.
Without this we will have to do most of our development on-site against the real web service, because it is not externally exposed.
The organisation has provided us, however, the WSDL and XSD files and whilst we can hand-craft a service and spend lots of time trying to make it identical to the supplied schemas, I thought a tool might be able to generate a WCF server skeleton for us easily.
