Visual Studio 2008 Changes WebService Proxy

Just a short post today to address a change in how VS 2008 handles proxying your web services.

In earlier versions of Visual Studio, when we went to suck in the ASMX files that represent our web service, proxy code would get created on the client side with the same name as the class that was our web service.

If you do the same thing in Visual Studio 2008, you’ll notice that that class no longer exist.  If you have a lot of classes, you’ll also notice that there are several interfaces that show up in intellisense now.

The new proxy class you are looking for is now named ClassNameSoapClient, where ClassName represents the name of the class in the web service.

Hopes this helps someone as they move to Visual Studio 2008
