Adding a Web Reference to an inacessible Web Service

Adding a Web Reference to an inacessible Web Service

  
If you want to create a web reference, the Service Studio asks you for a URL. But what it you can't access the URL?

Well, if you have the contract (the wsdl file), simply point to in pretending it's a URL, enter it's full pathname and the web reference will be correctly created.

Note that if when you compile the eSpace the webservice is still inaccessible, you'll get a warning saying that the web reference cannot be updated.

Hope that helps :)
Yes, and you can later change the URL in Service Center Edit eSpace page in the web references section.

For changes to take effect after changing the effective URL you should recompile and publish the eSpace.

This feature is also very useful when we have different development and production web services available.
